Friends of Hackney cyclist Dan Cox organise gig in his memory
Friends of the Hackney cyclist who died after going under the wheels of a lorry at Dalston Junction have organised a gig in his memory.
Five piece band The Grubby Mitts and musician Johnny Parry will dedicate their performance at Caf� Oto in Ashwin Street this month to Dan Cox.
The 28-year-old, of Lower Clapton Road, was seriously injured in a crash with a large Mercedes goods truck shortly before 4.45pm on February 2.
The aspiring art curator was taken to the Royal London Hospital in a critical condition but died two days later.
Organisers of the concert on April 21, said: “Originally arranged as the launch party for the single, To a Friend’s House, the Grubby Mitts have, after the recent tragic death of Dan Cox on the crossroads of Dalston Junction, changed the emphasis of the evening to a celebration for their close friend.”
