Overpriced booze might no longer be the biggest thing to worry about at gigs. On Tuesday we noticed that "beware of pickpockets" signs have gone up inside Brixton Academy, then on Wednesday BBC 6Music suggested thieves are targeting London gigs. All the movement in a crowd certainly makes it easier for crooks to half-inch stuff - and London's plague of ticket touts means it's not exactly going to be hard for them to get in. So if you're off to a gig, keep your wits about you and don't assume you're safe once you're through the door. Public service announcement over. (Image: browners82 via the Londonist Flickr pool.)
