brixton academy = that was the first time i'd been to that venue, and i was not disappointed!! got there at about 8.30-9 and there was a total of about 4 people in the whole place, which made the main arena look fuckin huge, which it was, and i think SS was playing to practically nobody. then about 7 more people turned up to see goldie, and by about 11.30 when all the pubs and that closed, the place was pretty packed. the sound system was really good imo, nice and clear. dynamite's live ting was well good, although i think the sudden change to hip hop might have confused a few people! Upstairs in the renegade hardware bit, it was just like a long corridor so there wasn't really very much of a dancefloor, but it was good to get away from the main arena for a bit. The vibe was quite different in the RH room, and gave a nice contrast to the huge packed out main arena. i saw ak1200 and dara playing when i got up there, followed by damage who played a particularly nasty set, then the badman raiden stepped up to keep everyone dancin until the end. it was a shame the cd player wasnt working during his set, cos some of his dubs atm wud have smashed that place up good and proper!! also he had to finish his set early, which was a shame, but can't complain it was a wicked night anyway. there were also so many bars there that it didnt take long at all to get a drink, which was a bonus, and although killa kela and marky didnt turn up, i had a proper good time and it seemed like everyone else did too, so big up the TOV crew for a fuckin blindin night!!
