Free rehearsal space available for bands from Zippo

By | Published on Monday 1 November 2010


To coincide with an exhibition of work by iconic rock photographer Mick Rock at the Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch, lighter people Zippo are offering up and coming bands free rehearsal space at the Neu Gallery just around the corner.

Bands selected will get free space, will be filmed for a Zippo podcast, and will get to stage a showcase performance for media types. And, given the link up with the Mick Rock exhibition, each band will also get a free professional photo shoot.

If you’re a band who thinks they could benefit from this, you need to get your skates on. Send a 200-word email to by the end of tomorrow (2 Nov) explaining why you should get use of the facility. You should also include a photo and a link to your MySpace profile.

The exhibition, also supported by Zippo, will run from 11 Nov to 16 Jan. More info at
