The lighting was phenomenal-so well done to the lighting technicians. Amazing job! I've been to clubbing events at the Brixton Academy and the lighting has always been brilliant. I love the Brixton Academy. It's not too small for big names to come play in and not too big for it to lose intimacy between the band and the audience.

Probably the best gig I've ever seen at this venue.

First time there to see Erykah Badu last night...At first glance, it looks really cool inside but I was dissapointed with the whole night. Maybe it was the crowd or the fact that erykah came on nearly 2 hours late to a sweaty, tired and booing crowd...just killed the mood for me and we left before the end of the show. Just to add, bar is slow, toilets are disgracefully filthy ( i think a port-a potty at glastonbury may be cleaner! ) and there was a stench of urine in the venue that just wouldn't go away. She is brilliant, but I'd rather see her somewhere else. Don't know why she always wants to play there. I think it would be amazing to see her at Royal Albert Hall one day if she ever decided to change venues. Don't think I'd go back to Brixton Academy though unfortunately. I prefer Hammersmith Apollo.

Better than usual on the ground level. The gig was not full and there was eneough room between punters. These whose read this site regularly will know of my dislike for Brixton (so why do I keep going back, believe me not by choice).

Brixton was heaving as usual. Sometimes too many people for comfort. Some idiot thought it funny to land a fullish pint of beer in the midst of us. Don't know if security came and dealt with him.Pre-Franz, there was no escaping the thumping drone of the DJ's on stage but worse still in the bar. You might have guessed - i still find it hard to love Brixton.

Just seen the Specials at the 02 Brixton. Brilliant night, Billiant Atmosphere and if your standing in the stalls you wont be dissapointed. Great views everywhere as the angled floors raise as you go back, so even if your short you can still get a great view. Brilliant venue. Would nefinatly recommend and would happily go again although The Specials would be a hard act to follow as they were fantastic.

Brixton Academy was a terrifc venue, not too huge to be impersonal, just right for cosy but with a "big stage" feel.

Love Brixton, but the queues for drinks are always deep
