Jeffrey Hinton

In a time when club spaces (and with them, overlooked communities) are disappearing before our eyes, Club Vada promoters Hannah Holland and Cathal O’brien are seeking to preserve queer culture and history, and share them with a new generation. As well as booking DJs who made their names in iconic queer parties of the past, at […]

The Shift

Now, now queens. If there’s anything we know, it’s that a party dedicated to Peaches is sure to be a lot more than your average night out. And so, for the upcoming Shake Yer Dix: Peaches Spexxxial we are pulling out all the punches. We are thrilled to welcome South East London’s queer-postmodern-gender-twisting-category-defying-glitter-encrusted drag troupe extraordinaires, […]

Planningtorock

Planningtorock is something of an enigma. The Berlin-based artist defies categorisation – both musically and politically. She has worked as a music producer and video director with a strong emphasis on collaboration and experimentation on the boundaries of genre. It is not surprising that, with a long list of collaborators such as The Knife and […]

Bobby van Druff

This First Thursday we welcome American artist Bobby van Druff to Dalston Superstore to present his solo Arthole exhibition, Malegraph. His series of oil paintings rooted in homoerotic images of male nudity are transformed into graphic compositions following the lines and shadows of the models, and part of the show will feature an exclusive set of […]

Beyond Clueless

Our pizza sisters Voodoo Ray’s have teamed up with our neighbours The Alibi to present a very special evening next Monday in honour of brand new documentary all about the beauty of teen movies, Beyond Clueless. Kicking off with a (free whilst stocks last) pizza party at Ray’s at 7pm you can then head down to […]

Darren Black

Self ­taught photographer Darren Black joins us for the next ArtHole exhibition with his “raw, edgy, uncompromising, confrontational and explicit” shots that retain their strong fashion element in amongst the collage style. As a child of the 80s who split his time between Hong Kong and Europe and eventually settling in New York before returning […]

Bourgeois & Maurice’s Brunch Playlist

For the dirty-stop-outs and the ones who got lucky, for the loved, and the unloved, East London’s spangliest duo Bourgeois & Maurice present an extra special post-Valentine’s Fork Of Shame brunch. Ahead of Sunday afternoon’s fun, they sent us over a little playlist of what to expect in-between the endless Bloody Marys, the horoscopes and […]

Naked Boys Brunch

Here at Dalston Superstore we recently played host to a special daytime edition of Naked Boy Reading! Brunch was had and things were read by hot men in their underwear. It was amazing. And to show you just how amazing it was, we’ve managed to get our mitts on the salacious photos shot by VANEK […]

Eyeshadows

Next Thursday in conjunction with the ArtHole exhibition launch, local electronic duo the Eyeshadows will join us in the laser basement for a special live performance at 8pm. As they’ll be celebrating the launch of their debut EP, we caught up with Y.O.T.I. and Mark from the Eyeshadows to find out behind their sound and ethos… How did […]

Patrick Church

For the launch of our new monthly exhibition series, ArtHole, we are joined by Patrick Church who presents his latest solo show, I Love You But I Love Me More. Featuring striking colourful works of pop culture figures in private moments, the show is sure to turn heads with its sheer boldness. Ahead of the […]

Opening Doors London

This week we sat down and had a chat with some of the lovely volunteers at Opening Doors London, a huge project in the UK that provides information and support services for and with LGBT people aged 50 and above across London. We posed a few questions to those at the frontlines of the different services […]
