The Clash are to open a pop-up store in London.
Called Black Market Clash, the store will be open for two weeks from Saturday, September 7 to Sunday, September 22 2013 at 75 Berwick Street, Soho.
The store, which is art directed and curated by the band and Robert Gordon McHarg lll of The Subway Gallery, will contain a display of the group’s instruments, stage clothing, rare memorabilia and never-before-seen original manuscripts and artifacts from the band.
The store will also be selling a limited collection of authorised items, from silkscreen prints, t-shirts and exclusive signed artwork, to guitars, vinyl, album boxsets and other collectors’ items created especially for the store.
In addition, an area of the store will be given over to Fender to run ‘Plug & Play demo stations’ and exclusive master classes. You can find more information about those here.
The store has been launched to coincide with the release of the band’s major new box set, called Sound System, and latest compilation, Hits Back.
