Atoms For Peace exhibition to take place during London residency

Atoms For Peace are set to stage a pop-up exhibition while their three London shows take place this week.

The Atoms For Peace Drawing Room has been created by the band's collaborator, artist Stanley Donwood, and will take place Upstairs at The Enterprise, opposite The Roundhouse in Camden, where Atoms For Peace play their first UK shows on July 24-26. The exhibition will be open from midday-8pm [BST] from July 24-27.

The exhibit will see the room turned into a gallery and a shop as well as a 'hanging-out space', featuring vinyl and 'live-printed' posters for sale, which will be made on a specially-installed silkscreen printing press. A handwritten note regarding the exhibition from Donwood states: "...At the moment I'm in a room full of Atoms For Peace artwork, merchandise, records and all I feel is trepidation and perhaps mild peril. But I'm sure it'll be fine."

Atoms For Peace will broadcast two of their upcoming gigs at London's Roundhouse via the new mobile app Soundhalo. The Soundhalo app, which was premiered by Alt-J in May of this year and is aimed at discouraging gig-goers from recording concerts on their phones, allows users to download high quality MP4 videos and audio tracks to their phones as the show they are attending is taking place. Fans are then able to download each track to a desktop or portable device, for 99p per track or £9.99 for the whole performance.
