GO Live Music in North London

Live Music in North London Going to see music live can transform your view of a musician or band so find out who has real talent by watching them live in north London.

One of the newest and probably the biggest venues in the area is the Carling Academy [map], Islington. Opened in 1993, this 800-seater concert venue attracts some of the bigger names in live music to north London. And for those with musical aspirations, the Carling Academy is often on the lookout for unsigned bands to support artists so if you want to be discovered then get in touch.

As well as hosting top comedy acts (for example Jimmy Carr in June/July ‘04) and drama productions, live music also has a place on the programme at the Hen and Chickens Theatre [map] in Highbury. This theatre pub showcases blues bands, tribute acts and much more at various times throughout the year.

When it’s not performing its righteous role, Chapel Union [map] is an awarding winning concert venue. The fact that it is still a working church doesn’t stop it from regularly hosting rock, jazz, folk and other music events amidst the gothic architecture.

Acoustic and unplugged music can be heard at Lark in the Park [map]. Located at Barnard Park in Islington, this independent bar is open to all sorts of music genres from acoustic indie folk to quirky rock/pop. The Lark even has an open mike night for any melody makers or spirited songstresses to grab a little limelight.

Indie kids and rockers will find that The Garage [map] in Islington caters for their tastes. This venue seems to be the epitome of the dive that most supporters of live rock music will be familiar with, but with Mean Fiddler organising the acts the spirit lives on. Since 1993 when Mean Fiddler opened the venue, the likes of Radiohead, Placebo and Supergrass have all graced the stage before they hit the big time, and today talented up-and-coming bands still top the bill.
