Jamie XX and Young Turks have taken the term ‘pop–up shop’ global with the opening of Good Times Store in London, as announced on both their Instagrams late last week.
After its New York success in the summer, Good Times Store has crossed the Atlantic to offer merchandise, shirts and a selection of records from the record store Kristina, which is an XX favourite. Signed vinyls, samples from the album In Colour, and “other assorted gems“ will also be on sale.
Following Jamie’s Mercury Prize nomination last week spirits must be
high because each night the store will also be broadcasting two hours of live radio shows. From Saturday 17 Oct through to 22 Oct you can catch the likes of Mica Levi, Mack + Friends, Sampha & Lil Silva, and of course Young Turks themselves.
You can find the store at 73 Kingsland Road, Dalston, London
