With the perfect location and vintage decor, KOKO is notably the most famous haunt of North London’s Camden. Happily sitting on the badlands of Mornington crescent, KOKO is the centre piece of the thriving indie scene that so consumes Camden. With Previous acts such as The Kooks, The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things, Lily Allen to name but a few, this club is sure to make it into the next century.
In the 1970s it became a live music venue, called The Music Machine, and in 1982 became the Camden Palace, and in 2004 it was redeveloped and renamed once again as KOKO, with a capacity of 1,500. The previous industrial fittings of the Camden Palace were removed and it was repainted in a dark red colour.
Since then it has hosted concerts for bands like of Coldplay, Madonna, and Babyshambles and has regular weekly club nights. The video for the Placebo's Because I Want You single was shot at the venue. Additionally, Testament's Live in London cd/dvd release was recorded and filmed on May 8, 2005 at Koko. The American Rock band My Chemical Romance played an exclusive private gig here, hosted by Radio 1 on 2 April 2007. The Channel 4 programme The Album Chart Show is recorded at Koko.

. He is generally considered the male lead in this operetta
, and while he sings during almost every song, his only true solos are "I've Got a Little List" and "On a Tree By a River."

is to be his bride, but she is in love with Nanki-Poo
, the Mikado's son, who is in turn lusted after by a noblewoman named Katisha
. After the entire cast attempts multiple times to sort out their mangled love lives, Ko-Ko finds love with Katisha, and they sing their famed duet, "There is Beauty in the Bellow of the Blast."
