Shepherd's Bush EmpireThe Empire is, admittedly, not the most comfortable of venues - the standing area is sunk so far beneath the main stage that anyone under six foot risks painful neck injuries if they want to watch from close-up. Still, the faded grandeur of this former BBC recording theatre, a fantastic acoustic, and the cheerful international population of Shepherd's Bush all add up to a fun live experience, and many musicians cite this as their favourite London venue to perform in.
