Brixton Academy Stockwell Road, Brixton, London SW9 9SL

One of the last remaining of the classic venues of my youth. Great sloping floor with barriers. Obviously not a great bar in a venue like this. Have seen the likes of Queen, Pixies, Suede, REM, Def Leppard, The Darkness, Pogues, Iron Maiden, Suicidal Tendencies, PWEI here, all the biggies! The nearest good venue to us now we live in Kent.

I was at this one, more from this year in my gig history. Part of all the gigs I went to from '87 to 2024. It's an obvious step from my Best gigs of all time weblog post. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying reminiscing about these things.

Gigs at Brixton Academy I was at are Suede "Dog Man Star" (2011), Suede "Suede" (2011), Queen ('05), The Pogues ('04), Pixies (2004), Pixies (2004), REM (2003), Def Leppard (2003), The Music ('03), Belle and Sebastian (2002), Iron Maiden ('02), Ash ('01), The Pogues ('00), Super Furry Animals ('99), Primal Scream ('98), NME Brat Awards (1998), The Prodigy ('97), XXX All Nighter ('97), Placebo (1997), Kula Shaker ('97), Manic Street Preachers (1996), Suicidal Tendencies ('93), Pop Will Eat Itself ('91)
