Artic Monkey Pop Up Shops (Sheffield)

The Artic Monkey’s have just released their new album Tranquility Base. This weekend there is 6 pop up shops around the world:

New York

Sydney

Tokyo

Paris

Berlin

And their home town Sheffield.

When I joined the queue at 9.10 the queue was round the corner of the building and continued to grow.

You can not see inside the shop from the outside as the windows are covered.

You enter through a tunnel, draped in black material, queue for a bit longer then enter the shop which is painted white. The shop has popped up in the former Google garage.

For sale is vinyl. Vinyl is maximum two per customer, the man in front of me wanted 3 so, I bought one for him then exchanged it and money on way out.

I nearly bought album on cd then realise I’m currently streaming for free through Alexis and will soon be paying to steam and I have not got a CD player so, put CDs on to iPod via laptop.

These were hardbound lyric books.

I just bought a tote bag. Plus picked up free postcards.
