As it happens, I will be in London on Friday and I'm 100% in for O2 Academy Islington. Questions: * Who else is going to be there? * Is there really a 10 PM curfew? If so, what time does the show start? * All the regular questions follow: Where to grab pints afterwards, etc. Come to think of it: a certain someone probably owes me a pint because Spurs finished ahead of Liverpool (again).
Places will be open nearby for drinking afterwards though. Islington Academy is at the Angel end of Upper Street. In my opinion, Upper St should be avoided at all costs on a Friday night, but there are a number of places nearer Highbury and Islington station that are decent.
Chris & Wayne (and Adam & Jimmy & Mikey & the Iggy Pop bass player whose name escapes me) - thanks for showing me around Islington, buying me way too many pints, and a great show. The band was on fire last night and everyone should go support them. - Kevin
