A huge polyphonous beautiful explosion of amazing

5.0 Stars

Passing Clouds will challenge everything you think a good night is all about and prove to you that there is so much more. What could be just another cavernous warehouse space playing minimal, electroclash and whatever else with a few LED displays has been transformed into something else entirely. Cooperatively run by forward-thinking, left-leaning artists, musicians and other creative types, Passing Clouds serves as a space to showcase the best of the rich variety of live music available in East London. Lavishly and eccentrically decorated - the downstairs resembles the inside of a huge tent, and the upstairs is somewhere between Moroccan hookah lounge and '20s cabaret - Passing Clouds is a feast of bright colours, with free face painting, and people dressed not to latest trends but in whatever looks the most fun. Drinks prices are low, and the music policy is of course eclectic, with performers playing everything from tango and salsa to electro-jazz to reggae. Just don't expect repetitive beeping. It goes without saying that the crowd is perhaps the most diverse and friendly of any venue I've been to, possibly ever. A blow-your-socks of amazing time is guaranteed for even the most hard-hearted anti-party people.
