Time Out says
Tue Aug 27 2013
It looks low-key from the outside, and in some senses it is, but the variety of music and events on offer at this tiny, tucked-away Dalston venue can make it feel like a whole different world at times. There's a strong sense of community and a 'for the people, by the people' ethos embedded deep within Passing Clouds, and this is reflected in its culturally minded programme of mainly live music, which happily flits between global beats, roots and reggae, electro, jazz, swing, rock and hip hop, in addition to film screenings, talks and spoken word nights – as varied as the tastes of Dalston's own residents, you might say. The décor is stripped-down, scruffy charm with a good slug of tropical, and a friendly vibe to boot.
