Afrika Bambaataa at Bussey Building
From the South Bronx to South London, Afrika Bambaataa is coming to Peckham on Wednesday June 5th, a legendary figure in the development of hip hop and electro. Worth a tenner of anybody's money.
Inevitably he's going to be appearing at the Bussey Building (CLF Arts Cafe), which has hosted a number of other music greats in the last year or so - I saw the Jungle Brothers there last April.
In fact the club is becoming one of the best venues in London, offering affordable but high quality sounds to a growing and diverse crowd. I had another great night at South London Soul Train there a couple of weeks and the place was rammed - over 1000 people dance, dance, dancing non-stop. Getting busy though, people were still queuing to get in at 2 am. I wouldn't expect a Wednesday night to be quite so mobbed but you might want to get a ticket in advance. Facebook details here.
