It's their staff party tonight!
Yeah I heard something along those lines. Nice plaything for the stinking rich 'DJ' socialite owner.
I don't know
i don't know how to link to it, but apparently someone with a machete has been tasered. The Twitter handle is ByRobDavies
Standard Monday nite in Tulse Hill then...
You can keep Herne Hill's gelato and West Norwood's cafe culture. Give me a machete waving lunatic in Tulse Hill any day.
At the final moment before being hit, the red dot from the taser looked perilously close to his brass clankers.
Wow. That’s scary stuff. I was trying to raise a laugh earlier but that guy obviously needs help. I'd imagine he wasn't trying to hurt anyone, as he would have had plenty of opportunity before the police arrived.
I lick my lips
I did say at the end that Council Tax needed to go up.
I think the survey is a good idea. It’s not really about garnering new ideas, it’s more about showing residents the difficulty that local authorities are in.
Arrested and bailed...
UPDATE: Man bailed following Brixton fatal collision
The problem is that they can then use results to say things like 'but 73% of Lambeth residents surveyed wanted us to close X rather than Y' when the reality is that that's what a very small sample said they'd prefer, on the basis of no detailed information and who'd obviously prefer that neither were closed. I've started to fill in consultations in such a way that I leave sections blank if I think they are asking leading questions that provide a choice between two things neither of which I want, or if they ask a question which I'm simply not qualified to answer in an informed way. Then I fill in the comments bits if there's a thought I want to be registered.
Different kind of night on at Market House tonight
Ah, FB is fucking around.
It's Queerdos at House of Idiot
Free tickets from here
Brixton this afternoon before the downpour
As Bob and Bryan said, "A hard rain's a-gonna fall..."
Can someone remind me please, does the Effra Hall Tavern have live music on Fridays?
Every night but Friday and Monday. https://theeffra.com/#whats on
The Junction is a great alternative, albeit with more jazzy vibes.
Free DJ night tomorrow if anyone fancies it!

I've never heard of Ben Howard yet he managed to sell out the Academy for four nights. I thought I'd give him a listen now and it's alright but nothing too amazing.
The Guardian wasn't too impressed with his Brixton show
Ben Howard review – serious music sabotaged by a charisma vacuum
I saw that today and thought the very same thing ‘ who is Ben Howard’? You’ve just saved me some Goggling.
In a nutshell (as I've just listened to about 10 of his songs) : started off all folky cosy singalong Ed Sheeran and then decided to go glum experimental Thom Yorke.
Oh dear! Probably give it a miss and go and do something less boring instead. Like this- Brixton Buzz brings the party to the Effra Social this Friday, 18th Jan 2019 – and it’s free entry all night!
Guess it was only a matter of time but it looks like farewell to Launderama on Brixton Rd as it has a very closed look and a planning application has been granted
Admitted it may not have the same emotional cachet as a pub but still this was still a place where community would meet and engage over the weekly wash and somewhere catering to those in non luxury accommodation a few of whom still live in the area. Will be interesting/depressing to see what it becomes ?

Lambeth launches new health and wellbeing hub to help residents to access support
Who ARE "The Beatles"?
Well I didn't know who this guy was - and it turns out he is a person of note.
His vignette at the end of the Standard Magazine name checks 3 Brixton businesses which could be said to be normal (as opposed to hipster etc) - at least I think so.
I like the Notes to Strangers project. I see lots of them in my neighbourhood and they always make me smile/think

I'm really enjoying the nights at the Effra Social these days. We seemed to have picked up a good crowd.
