Ooh what Jeff Koonsian window display do we have here?

Well after The Flourmill and Flirkin, The Goose and more recently Ivan’s Retreat the pub perhaps best known as the place gig goers flock to when the house lights go on inside Brixton Academy and all that’s left is plastic cup ands mosh-pit debris, has been handed over to new management…again!

The paint on the sign is still fresh: The Rest Is Noise has taken over.  And it seems to be in good hands, now under the management of 580, the company behind The Lock Tavern, Field Day and New Cross’ Amersham Arms. Having kitted out the pub with a decent stage and powerhouse soundsystem built from Notting Hill Carnival leftovers (hmmm…you know what us Brixtonians like), we’re now looking at a pretty decent timetable of events.

Yeah, as you can see there’s loads. But we definitely need to check out the Wednesday night Blacker Dread residency as there’s no way the legendary Coldharbour Lane record store can let us down playing some serious reggae. And this Saturday we’re getting amongst others SCUM and My Tiger My Timing…oh we’re so spoilt!

Yeah! Yipeee! It’s that time of the year again, it’s the Lambeth Country Show!!!
A weekend of free entertainment, live music and organic cider drinking for everyone, so get yourselves down to Brockwell Park on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of July.
If you’ve never been and might need a little convincing, here are a few shots from last year’s:

Anyway, I just had a peep at their programme and I know I’ll be looking out for Johnny Clarke, The Top Cats who I saw only last week at the Hootananny (They were rocking!!!) and Lambeth Wind Orchestra, who I happen to have seen too, and they’re pretty cool!
Also, because Brixton is rather good to us, on the same weekend we are treated to the annual Urban Art Fair on Josephine Avenue!

You know the drill, come out and experience it, and I’ll see you all there! ;0)

Before I disclose any information, I should mention that I have been asked not to advertise this place too much as its regulars favour the lack of publicity. However, at MyBrixton, we simply cannot keep anything to ourselves!
On a corner of Kellett Road, tucked away from the town center but within minutes of the tube station, stands the Effra Hall Tavern, more commonly known as the Effra. Heard of it?
In a nutshell, it’s a charming old fashioned pub that offers resonably priced drinks, Caribbean food as well as live ska and jazz music on Thursday and Sunday nights!
I won’t say anymore, just go check it out and tell us what you think. And if anyone asks, remember, you did not hear it from me…
