Loki [Brixton]

From the outside it is unsuspecting: a 10 foot high black gate in between industrial bins under a railway arch. Inside is a 250 cap community-hall-come-sweaty-nightclub with a newly fitted Noise Control soundsystem. The space, which was Medusa nightclub in the 80s and 90s, hosted the likes of Basement Jaxx and local soundsystems, with no set rules on closing times or drinks prices. This corner of London was once a tastemaker in underground music – its punk and reggae scenes garnered recognition across the UK and Europe. loki exists as an antidote to the slick shiny music spaces cropping up in Brixton, that are not a representation of its music history. Alongside the weekend club programme, every Thursday from January, the ‘loki live’ series will incorporate local music experimenters with well-loved acts across Europe, with food from local south London restaurateurs available. Good music, hot food, nice people.
