The Brixton Week Ahead

Tuesday: It’s the Open Mic Night at Upstairs at the Ritzy tonight. Music, jokes, rhymes, poetry – you can share it all here. Sign up at 7pm for 7.30pm start.

Wednesday and Thursday: Now the cuts are coming in and we’re all about to be unemployed, we may as well spend our time usefully, no?

Two exhibitions in Brixton to keep you occupied:

The Another Lost Child exhibition at Photofusion is well worth a visit. Photographer Adam Patterson started looking at gangland culture in South London in 2008, but his photo project mutated into something quite different when he started to work closely with a 19 year-old gang member, Jean Claude Dagrou. And this is the culmination of their collaboration, with photos and texts by both Dagrou and Patterson.

For photography of the more abstract kind, the Viewfinder Gallery in Granville Arcade is exhibiting three contemporary photographers who tackle gender and identity in their works.  

Saturday: Dance the night away at Mango Landin with our favourite Globo Loco team and their ‘Phat February World Street Party’. Read a review of the World Street Party night by Brixton Beats blog here.


  1. It looks like this thursday’s a good night for art locally; another Exhibition of photos by local artist Sally Bowen aka. MissDiagnosed is taking place at The Queens Head, 144 Stockwell Road, until the end of the month & this thursday 10th Feb. there’ll be some top Djs playing records, so why not take in the other shows mentioned above, make it a sort of ‘art crawl’ & end up in SW9 ?!!/event.php?eid=197589923585989
