Brilliant night out at KoKo, three bands on and a very ornate building also. Powerwolf, Amaranthe and Kissin' Dynamite. Great rock night in London.

Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High
