Excuse the torturous headline and focus instead on the fact that the Westfield shopping centre in London’s Stratford ¬– a harrowingly huge monument to trainers, nylon and Nando’s – is getting into concerts with the launch of Music Cube, an “interactive” music space. Acts play in a soundproof glass cube, sort of like that time David Blaine, the hipster Paul Daniels, sat in a suspended Perspex box by the Thames – but hopefully with fewer people lobbing eggs at it. The audience is able to hear them through special Sennheiser headphones. So it’s a bit like Silent Disco except this also has a vibrating floor (!). Shows will also be streamed online via the Westfield and Kiss FM sites so, if listening at home, you may have to improvise by getting someone to throw some bins and rocks around to get the full vibrating floor experience. MNEK is one of the first confirmed acts to play.
