Although this is not the usual kind of post you will find on artbleat, photography is an art form and it's London-centric. Oh! .. and Kings Davis is a good friend, so I'm giving One Hundred Nights At The 100 Club a big shout.

The book itself is currently in crowdfunding stage, you can have a look at the Kickstarter HERE.

Kings Davis and Darren Russell have been shooting bands and performers at the legendary 100 Club in London's Oxford street for the last however many years and have between them amassed a library spanning four decades.

The pair have teamed up with Stephen Dowling, a music writer and Neil Pond a publishing project manager to create a photographic document of 100 of their favourite nights at the club. Alongside the previously unseen images the book will also include interviews with many of the featured acts, audience members, 100 Club staff and Roger, Richard and Jeff Horton, who between them have been running the club since the mid-1960s.

You can help get this project over the finish line by heading to the Kickstarter page where you can pre-order the book with various reward extras plus get in early on the very limited signed prints on offer.

If you happen to be in London on Thursday 13th April then can see the images and a mock-up of the book and meet the team behind it at a pop up event in Soho.

The event is on from 5pm - 9pm at 21 Berwick Street, London W1F 0PZ

Update 15/03: Sold out, all gone, None left.

American street art legend Shepard Fairey has some very nice wallpaper prints dropping on Obey Giant around 5pm (UK) March 14th.

Floral Takeover 2017 is available in 4 various colourways $45 each, even with the pricy shipping on top these are still worth a look as Shepard does not release enough of his pattern prints. Just be quick as these will go like a shot.

London's Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen will host the return of The Vending Machine Art Gallery Show this January, an exhibition and affordable art project focused on bringing art out of traditional gallery spaces and making it more accessible. The title of the show speaks for itself , yes the art is dispatched from a vending machine.

Over 35 artists are taking part in this year's event including 2016 secret walls winner Hatch, Graffiti legend CROK and the "everywhere you look" Anna Laurini.
