Gig Going on London’s Periphery: Charting the Mainstream in the Margins

Below is a blog I posted this week for Live Music Exchange, a hub for live music research whose advisory board I joined in the summer. The blog, ‘Gig Going on London’s Periphery: Charting the Mainstream in the Margins’, touches on threats and opportunities relating to music performance and creative practice in London. In particular, it focuses on ongoing changes in the creative standing of west and south east London since the 1960s, taking as its starting point the contrasting fortunes of two Gaumont Palace cinemas (later Odeons) built in 1932, one in Hammersmith, the other in Lewisham.
