MTV Brand New for 2012...... I should KoKo

Normally when attending live gigs there is always a fly in the ointment for me - the line up, the location, the crowd, the ticket price etc, however last week I was luckily enough to attend the MTV Brand New for 2012 events at KoKo in Camden.

KoKo has always been a fave venue of mine.. I have fond memories of nights out in my late teens when it was the infamous Camden Palace... the former theatre holds a feeling of nostalgia and the set up is perfect for intimate gigs... providing a dance floor to skank out on, boxes for industry types and gorgeous panoramic views which make filming and photographing events simple and quite beautiful.

Admittedly for some people Camden can be a bit of a mission to get to, but those who really love their music go out of their way to make sure that they are the first in line to see their favourite acts. On both nights the crowds were mixed in age, sex, race... there was no attitude and everyone was there for one reason and one reason only, the music.

MTV have been renowned for spotting and acknowledging up and coming talent and in my view have rarely got it wrong... This years line up being no different... check out my reviews on both nights covering  
The Maccabees, Lana Del Rey and Charli XCX from Tuesday 24th January and Delilah, Michael Kiwanuka and the gorgeous Emili Sande from Weds 25th January.
