So, how are you guys getting to and from Brixton in 2 weeks ?

Anyone driving, or taking the train ?

Ferry from Belfast to Liverpool, brief stop over in Todmorden then driving down to London, I think, plans could change!!

Aristo,
If we plan it right, we can meet at Victoria for a pint on our way to Brixton. Whatcha think? I gotta get to the gig early though. Gotta sort out Hawley's tix.
Let me know.

guys, a warning, the victoria line stops running at 10pm at the moment, so it won`t be possible to use the tube from Brixton after the gig.

Alternatives are buses, or a walk up to Stockwell tube to catch a tube there.

I think i may drive, park in Pope`s road multi storey car park....

Hey Dave, how close to the Academy is the Railway? It was also called Brady's. Click HERE.

It was where a bit of the Clash film, "Rude Boy" was shot there with Ray Gange (who's comin' to Brixton with me).

Ya know where that joint is?

Cheers,
Tommy

As far as I know it was pretty close to Brixton tube station but it's been derelict for a few years now. (http://route.rac.co.uk/routeplanner.cgi?jsOption=true&advanced=false&qs_1=sw9+8hx&countryCode_1=UK&qs_2=sw99sl&countryCode_2=UK&rtype=true&x=25&y=13)

I don`t know that area at all Tommy, except what i saw of it in 2004, and what i see on Google Maps when planning my Journey for the 10th !!

I`m sure there are some pubs nearby that i will drop into en route, so maybe catch you at one of them sometime in the afternoon ?

Hey Banksy,
No way man, Ray is a cool cat. Stockwell not a good idea then? All I know is that I am NOT black cabbing it back to Russell Square. Last time I did that (2004) it cost me over 60 quid!

Morrrrrrrrrre Clahhhhhhshhhhhh morrrrrrrrrrre clahhhhhhassssshhhh!!!

Who would be stupid enough to mess with 1,000 drunken rockers??

Brixton is no worse than any other part of London after dark really - although thinking about it, that's not that reassuring these days!.

a guy i know said he often pre-books a mini cab to collect him from that area of london, costs 50 to get back to wheere i live, but shared between 3 or 4 people that`s only 15 or so each.

I`m looking into that option as well.
