The Pogues Do Brixton

If you have spent extended amounts of time in a shopping mall or a supermarket in the last few weeks, you will probably have found yourself bombarded by generic Christmas anthems from the tinny speakers these places boast.

However, among the mind-numbingly generic songs, you might find one or two of them to your liking. One of the more authentic and heartfelt songs, and an undisputable Christmas favourite, is the moving ‘Fairy Tale of New York’ by legendary Irish band, The Pogues.

With an upcoming tour, The Pogues offer fans the opportunity to witness the song live, a step up from hearing it through the tinny speakers found in supermarkets. Touring at one of the most appropriate times of the year, they will be gracing Brixton Academy on the 16th, 18th and 19th of December, and should you decide to go, perhaps hiring a Brixton Escort to accompany you will really make the bells ring out for Christmas day.
