The weekend ahead in Brixton

Lots of great music and art events going on in Brixton this weekend…

Friday: Plan B has launched a weekly ‘jam’ called ‘Bump!’  It’s all about putting the fun back into going out and getting away from “overpriced West End clubs , or that slightly pretentious thing the kids with the funny hair do in East London.”  Expect anything from dancehall, dubstep and hip hop to house and garage.

Free before 10pm and only £5 after.

Saturday: Brixton Jamm is holding a night hosted by Squatter’s Delight – it’s an evening of live indie, acoustic, ska and dubstep with DJs to follow. Manchester band Everything Everything will be playing a live DJ set and Hacienda Hotel are hosting the front room with a collection of DJs from Kendo Nagasaki to XFM’s Christian Nash.

Sunday: The best thing to do this Sunday after two days of hard dancing? Brian Barnes, the artist behind the Nuclear Dawn mural on Coldharbour Lane, is giving a talk on the history of the peace mural at 12.30pm upstairs at the Dogstar. Entry is free. For a taste of what it might be like, see our blog post on Brixton murals here.
