A new exhibition of Rockarchive images are on display at Radio Salon in Shoreditch. The opening night went off with bang, it was 5th November after all.
Thursday night saw the unveiling of 3 huge prints in the salon along with some clusters of smaller prints decorating the walls of east London's prime hair salon, Radio Salon. The night was enjoyed by all as Johnny Borrell (Razorlight) aired his new songs to an excited crowd drinking down Champagne and Sailor Jerry's Rum!
Get down to the Salon and check out the exhibition, and book yourself in for a cut at the same time!
