Possibly inspired by last year's Bob Dylan pop-up shop, a Jimi Hendrix pop-up shop & exhibition is opening in Ganton Street, off Carnaby Street, in April. It'll sell some Hendrix merchandise and records, and house an exhibition of Gered Mankowitz' photos. Mankowitz himself will be in the store to do a signing and a talk on April 6th
"The store, at 8 Ganton Street in Soho, will celebrate the recent release of 'People, Hell & Angels', which consists of tracks from Hendrix recording sessions that took place between early 1968 and late 1969.
It will host a Gered Mankowitz photography exhibit as well as selling limited edition merchandise, records and feature Fender Plug & Play demo stations.
Open from April 1-12, the shop will be launched by Jimi's sister Janie L Hendrix, who will be signing copies of Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book on the opening evening.
Gered Mankowitz will then appear at the shop on April 6 to talk about working with Hendrix and he will also be signing copies of his prints."
When - 1st - 12th April
