Jimi Hendrix pop-up store to open in April
A Jimi Hendrix pop-up store will open in Soho, London, for the first 12 days of April.
The store, to be located at 8 Ganton St., comes as Hendrix’s posthumously-released album, “People, Hell and Angels” becomes the legend’s highest charting album since 1969. That album will be available at the Soho store, along with Hendrix’s full back catalogue in CD and vinyl, including items never released in the UK. It will also sell limited edition merchandise, including clothing, art, lyrics/chord books and guitar accessories.
The pop-up will host an exhibition of Hendrix-photographer Gered Mankowitz’s work. Mankowitz will be in store to sign prints and discuss shooting Hendix on April 6, from 3 pm to 6 pm. Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi, has also scheduled a visit to the store, on April 1 from 4 pm to 6 pm.
Fender will host “plug and play” stations for guitarists to practice as well as a Jimi Hendrix master class, teaching Hendrix riffs.
