    Fucking hell. Walking through Brixton on a Saturday night is getting grimmer. Pissed up people, piss, rubbish, discarded meat products and aggressive shouty types at every turn.

    It's like a South London Magaluf without the sun.

    There's a synchronised display of smartphones going on at Pop tonight. Oh wait, it's the crowd 'interacting' with the live act in the 'community hub.'

    The Mustard comedy is on tonight at the Effra social. I’ve been several times, and it’s a great night - fresh comedy, with a great range of talent. Pay what you can :)
    Not my favourite pub In Brixton, but happy make an exception for the mustards

    There was a Guardian article earlier this month complaining of cuts to the programme "Late Junction" - a sort of experimental mix of stuff late night on Radio 3. One of the items cited as an example of excellence was this clip of Roger Robinson describing the delights of Brixton.
    Late Junction - Brixton by Roger Robinson, Mark Sanders and Ben Vince - BBC Sounds

    Can't say I've heard of Roger, and for me the clip was enough at 3 minutes - but what is interesting in a way is that this piece which seems to date origially from 2015 is already like a blast from the past.

    Brixton is no longer the multicultural melting pot Roger describes in his piece. And even the "Fridge" is now renamed.

    I have a couple of Roger Robinson cd's the 2015 Dis Side Ah Town and the 2017 Dog Heart City. Both great listens.

    Heads up
    Message from Transport for London:

    “I am writing to inform you of upcoming essential emergency work to repair a fixed-track crossing section on the Victoria line. As a result of this work, from 00:30 and all day on Sunday 31 March, there will be no service between Victoria and Brixton, including no Night Tube service on Saturday night. A reduced frequency service will run between Victoria and Walthamstow Central.

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    23 year renter and born and bred Brixton person (and 40 years on Lambeth housing list) is being evicted by landlord, alongside her two grown up kids. She is good, kind and caring, and her two children are lovely young people.

    She needs a place quick for them. Cheap, and local.

    If any of you know of anything then please please let me know.

    This person is a quite amazing and wonderful and saved my life more than once, so I would love to see her and her two kids with a roof over their heads and some stability.

    Greedy landlords fuck me right off.
