The Underworld


Live Music

A haven for rock kids and metalheads alike, the newly cleaned up Underworld still snarls with riff-heavy menace and scuzzy bravado. The stage is small, the audience area cramped - but it just makes a show here that much more fun. With less space, you have little choice but to get involved. It hosts a massive cross section of rock subgenres, though of late it's seen a lot of post-hardcore and metalcore bands through its hallowed doors. Acts as diverse as mind-bending mathcore impresarios The Dillinger Escape Plan to Japanese oddballs Electric Eel Shock have all played here in addition to indie royalty like Radiohead and Placebo.


The crowd is young, pumped up on testosterone and braying for a good time. Check listings before you go, as popular bands can sell out quick; though if you're in the area it's worth checking out if any tickets are going on the door. The venue also hosts the occasional club night, so check on the website for listings.

Last but not least, a choice of pre-show pubs beckons - next-door World's End (massive, with an excellent music policy), nearby Brewdog (for the lover of craft beers) and around the corner, The Hobgoblin with its metal-leaning music policy and plethora of rock kids. The choice is yours.
