Mr Fogg's Pop-up shop
Oxford's solo electronica Artist Mr Fogg will open his own pop-up shop, named 'Fogg Shop', in Central London for 4 days just before Christmas. He will sell only CDs, T-shirts, badges and other Mr Fogg merchandise, while also performing throughout the day and night.
Mr Fogg says:
"It's about creating a little Mr Fogg world just off one of London's busiest streets - seeing my logo in amongst the McDonalds and Starbucks. But it's also about putting music back on the high street. Just about the only place you can buy physical records now is your local supermarket along with the pizzas and frozen peas - this is an attempt to create an opportunity for people to interact with music in a slightly more creative environment."
The shop is on 16 Manette Street (off Charing Cross Road) opposite the historic music locale Denmark Street and right next to the venue The Borderline. It will open for 4 days - December 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th from mid-day everyday and will close "when it's obvious that we should".
