Camden also is the epicentre of the London (and by extension Englands) 'alternative' music scene. Many of the pubs and clubs in the area double up as venues and on a typical night there might be anything upwards of 20 live bands to go and see, ranging from the sublime to the truly awful. Worthy boozers in this area are plentiful and you'd be surprised if you *didn't* see a member of at least one group you own a record by in most of them. Foremost amongst these would be the Dublin Castle and the infamous Good Mixer.
