Don’t Call it a Comeback.
Anyone fancy a rave in IKEA? Or, as the Swedes call it, a ‘yra’. Funnily enough, trying to say ‘yra’ contorts one’s face in such a manner as to accurately replicate the gurns of the people who frequent such venues (raves, not IKEAs).
When it was revealed that Printworks would be closing and turned into flats, it felt like another potentially fatal dagger through the heart of the British nightlife industry. But the team who brought you Printworks are back, better and bigger, announcing this week that they will be taking over the 608,000 sq ft disused IKEA in Tottenham and turning it into Drumsheds, a 15,000-capacity events space.
Printworks walked so Drumsheds could run. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, NIMBYs of London who couldn’t take the untz untz. Actually, maybe don’t smoke anything offered to you around here. But definitely take a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror. And we mean a mirror on a wall, not a living room table at 3am.Read Original Story
