With how the Market has gone? It's inevitable.. appropriate? Dunno, prolly not, I haven't seen what their plans are to make it an 'involving community space' yet.Inaugural events are usually there to set the tone of the place. Do you think it's appropriate for the area?
What you are getting is Lexadon preparing the way for their development and protecting the property until they are ready to do the work. You and I get a piss-elegant licensed squat to look at, at least temporarily. And the lads and lasses of "My Fathers Place" "William Hills" etc get acclimatised to the encroaching yuppies. Maybe Lexadon think a "Supper Club" is like Brixton Tube station playing classical music - makes undesirables feel really uncomfortable apparently.I thought we were getting a community art space, not a venue for private yuppie supper nights.
In a FREE night in a pub full of locals, you clueless oaf. Most of the Actionettes have lived in Brixton or thereabouts for years on end too.
They'd have got into all sorts of trouble if they'd put on a "traditional black Brixton" night though, wouldn't they.I just think putting on a dressy-uppy, hoity-toity £40 bash in a now-closed traditional black Brixton pub in an area surrounded by social housing isn't the greatest idea.
You actively promote Brixton nightlife with the Brixtonbuzz website amongst other stuff. And do a good job of it. You also run regular nights and do a good job of that too. And yet you are objecting to a new nightlife venue in Brixton. Why?How does that work then? Go on, try and construct a point that makes some sort of real-world sense. I'm sure you can manage if if you actually think things through here.
