Back in London – BRIXTON ACADEMY
In a suburb of south London stands one of a kind O2 Brixton Academy. One of the many holy grails for artists to perform in London. Since 1983, its had its doors open supporting and showcasing the best talent from home and around the world. You name ‘em, they have played here.
I hit up my good friend Fam who I hadn’t seen for far too long, we spent the best part of 2 months touring the states with a crew of friends for the JC Coffin tour back in 2012. He was over in London with Donald Glover/CHILDISH GAMBINO and crew and our catch up was long over due, so me and the Mrs. set off to watch them tear up Brixton Academy and bust some pretty awesome dance moves.
It was the last date of the Europe part of the tour for the guys and they were after some visuals to wrap it up, so of course I offered my hand and worked on a short moving picture piece of the night, which should be live fairly soon.
Always a pleasure to meet new people and catch up with the old. The guys definitely put on a solid show and I’m sure the 5000 sweaty people who attended would agree it was another amazing performance added to the strong history of the O2 Brixton Academy walls.
So much fun hanging and shoot with these guys, hopefully its not to long till next time.
