- Launching next month, the Hackney space has been fitted with a d&b audiotechnik soundsystem.
A new 120-capacity venue is opening in Hackney, East London, on Friday, March 9th.
The Glove That Fits is the latest venture from the team behind former Hackney Wick spot Shapes. It'll spread out across two levels—upstairs is the bar and café, while in the basement is the 80-capacity event space, complete with a d&b audiotechnik soundsystem. The booking programme will range from club nights and live music gigs to spoken-word events and radio broadcasts. Dimensions Festival will co-host the opening, launching the latest EP, by Kerem Akdag, on their label.
"We don’t believe 'bigger is better,' said operations manager Dyllan Zain. "Some of best events we’ve experienced have been the most intimate. There is a unique sense of connectivity between artist, audience and environment. At its core, it's a free space where people can hang out and listen to sounds DJs don't normally get to play. It's an artist-led programme which provides Hackney and the surrounding area with a platform for experimentation—in whatever form it takes. The curiously weird and wonderful are welcome here."
