Indie rock band The Twang will be stopping by Scala for one night this November. With their third studio album due to be released late October, it will be an opportune moment for them to showcase their new material as well as old favourites.

London's Scala is located in central London within the old King's Cross Cinema and is a venue dedicated purely to music. Situated in the heart of London, there are a number of hotels near Scala. If you were hoping to find accommodation near the venue, take a look at our London Hotels page.

 

About Scala

Housed inside the old King's Cross Cinema, the Scala might be a bit tattered around the edges but this only adds to its battered charm. The venue welcomed legends like Iggy Pop during the 70s, but didn't become a purely music venue until 1993. More about Scala
