Venues to catch London's best live indie music

Androgynous haircuts, skinny jeans, subversive T-shirts and poorly played instruments, this isn't just music, this is live Indie music.

Getting into an indie club is easy... just show the bouncer your androgynous haircut, skinny jeans and subversive T-shirt (featuring politics or a retro snack... but preferably both) - and you're in. Fail on any one criterion and you'll surly be marched to the nearest All Bar One where you'll undoubtedly be more comfortable.

With more indie venues than you could shake a battered Telecaster at - particularly in and around Camden - searching out the best can take an age, so allow us to provide a shortcut to what we consider to be some of the best...
