The London venue has some cracking events coming up for the rest of the year.
One of the best music venues in London has to be Electric Brixton.
The venue is housed in Brixton’s Town Hall Parade and is steeped in early 20th-century tradition. From its Palladium Picture House days to its time as the Fridge nightclub, Electric Brixton has brightened south London with genre and culture-transcending events.
Wanna know who’s performed there? Only New Order, Eurythmics, Grace Jones, King Tubby, Jessie Ware, and Deadmau5. Since its reopening in 2011, Electric Brixton has breathed life into the local scenes as well as the international one so its a must-go venue if you love live music.
But enough about the past and traditions. Here’s what’s upcoming for the next few months;
Fidlar (27th Aug)
Punk isn’t a genre we really cover on Sampleface but music is music and Fidlar are the first band announced for August. The LA-based punk outfit will be in London in the tail end of summer to promote their latest album, Almost Free, which came out in January.
Earthgang (26th Sept)
Atlanta’s Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot go by the name of Earthgang and have two of the coolest names in hip hop right now. Lazy writers might compare them to OutKast. But I am not a lazy writer. Head to Electric Brixton in September to see what they’re all about.
Ten Tonnes (10th Oct)
Ten Tonnes is the stage name of British singer-songwriter Ethan Barnett. Hailing from Hertford, his eponymous debut album came out earlier this year.
Self Esteem (24th Oct)
From what started as a half-joke, Rebecca Taylor’s self-reflecting band name has come to mean so much more. She released her debut album Compliments Please under the name in March on Fiction Records.
HÆLOS (29th Oct)
HÆLOS are a trip hop band from London so they’ll be right at home in Brixton. In May, they released their second album, Any Random Kindness.
Etta Bond (21th Nov)
Soul singer Etta Bond is due to perform in Brixton a day before my birthday, funnily enough. She took a break from music but came back recently with a double album, He’s Not Mine / He’s Mine. Some of her inspirations include Jill Scott, Michael Jackson, and J Dilla.
Dave East (3th Dec)
One of New York’s finest rappers will be gracing the stages of Electric Brixton before Christmas. East was part of XXL Magazine’s 2016 Freshman Class and has been signed to Mass Appeal Records and Def Jam Recordings.
