Patrick Heardman suggests the best places to head this weekend
This Club really needs no introduction to the Goldsmiths demographic. The Bussey Building or ‘CLF Art Café’ is a fantastic space for all things arts and culture through the day and by night hosts some of the biggest DJs around. The spacious layout and warehouse-conversion aesthetic is very impressive and draws crowds week in week out. I can’t remember ever having a bad night at Bussey, and with it being right on New Cross’ Doorstep it’s the ideal remedy for those 2 hour night-bus journey’s home from central London clubs. This Friday sees the monthly ‘Wavey Tones’ team take the helm at the turntables showcasing Andy Blake and Bell Towers. Expect 4/4 beats.
Entry – £4
Notting Hill Arts Club
Don’t get this confused with the ‘Chelsea Arts Club’. There are no year-long waiting lists here, but there are club nights every day of the week in this cosy underground venue. Notting Hill Arts Club’s regular nights boast the latest fresh young musical talent from around the capital, with more of a focus on bands and live performers. This Saturday from 4-8pm is a FREE early-evening live music event from ‘Jimmy Plates’ and live guests, designed for you to stumble in on after a day of strolling Portobello Market. With happy hour drinking prices this is sure to set you up for the late evening event from 8pm-2am (£6), which sees Latino Carribean DJ Arias (pic, Movimientos) and guest DJ Mad Max (Whomanity) take to the decks.
Entry – Free/£6
