G FOOT L.A. POP UP STORE
Tuesday & Wednesday October 3rd & 4th from 5-10pm ONLY
Freak City Secret Shop
2514 Daly Street
Featuring the exclusive collection of clothing and accessories from GORILLAZ designed by Jamie Hewlett
In celebration of Gorillaz’ sold out October 5th headline appearance at the Forum in Los Angeles, G Foot—the collection of clothing and accessories designed by Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett—will be setting up a limited run L.A. pop-up store October 3rd and 4th at Freak City–L.A.’s underground music and fashion playground.
The G Foot L.A. pop-up store experience will allow fans exclusive access to clothing and accessories unavailable elsewhere—including a limited edition Gorillaz “Hollywood” T-shirt created exclusively for the L.A. location and available only as long as quantities last during the store’s two-day run.
The multi-piece G Foot capsule collection showcases the iconic style created by Hewlett to take Gorillaz band members 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and Noodle into the real world. The collection can be seen here: http://eu.gfoot.store/ and a selection of high res images can be downloaded here: https://we.tl/33MChgMOS3
G Foot Creative Director Remi Kabaka said, “G Foot is a post-skate wear collection reminiscent of class acts like Silas, Eley Kishimoto or LaurenceAirline. Positive vibrant brands, with no shame in their game.”

The sold out Gorillaz show at the Forum continues the Humanz tour that began its sold-out North American run July 8 in Chicago. The tour has played Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Detroit, St. Paul, Kansas City, Denver, Las Vegas and more to the largest and most enthusiastic U.S. crowds Gorillaz has seen to date—and critical response has been equally enthusiastic:
“An overwhelming pop spectacle, with Damon Albarn’s steady presence to keep the audience focused”—ROLLING STONE
“The guests came fast and furious… but despite the frontman’s oft-stated wishes to increasingly blur into the group’s background as they evolve – last night was still unquestionably Damon’s show, as both star and director, and it ended as a smashing success for fans of all ages.”–BILLBOARD
“The ultimate triumph was Albarn’s — a multiculti, multigenre musical journey that touched on hip-hop, funk, Chicago house and gospel.”—CHICAGO TRIBUNE
“Gorillaz may be a ‘virtual’ band comprised of cartoon characters drawn by Tank Girl co-creator Jamie Hewlett. But its flesh-and-blood incarnation, led by Damon Albarn, is a force to be reckoned with — which the group proved again… a soaring delight from start to finish… The cartoons may be great fun, but it’s the human side that makes Gorillaz really swing.”—DAILY TRIBUNE (MI)
“Mind blowing… expectations were blown out of the water”—TWIN CITIES MEDIA
“”[Gorillaz’s set] wasn’t played so much as detonated on the Downtown Stage on Sunday as the three-day Life is Beautiful music and arts festival came to an incendiary close… The band’s 20-song, 90-minute set was paced for maximum impact”–LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL (10 best LIB 2017 performances: Gorillaz #1)
“Albarn and company put on an all-star show that practically felt like a festival in and of itself.”—YAHOO MUSIC
Humanz was released April 28th on Warner Bros. to widespread critical acclaim, reaching #1 and #2 in the U.S. and U.K. album charts respectively, and topping the iTunes chart in 60 plus countries around the world. The 14-track album is available on standard CD, vinyl and as a digital download, as well as a 19-track 2-CD Deluxe. A limited edition Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set featuring new and previously unreleased ‘b-sides’ / alternate versions of album tracks, is available to pre-order via gorillaz.com/store now. Produced by Gorillaz, The Twilite Tone of D /\ P and Remi Kabaka and recorded in London, Paris, New York, Chicago and Jamaica, Humanz comes seven years on from the release of albums The Fall and Plastic Beach. Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals) are – as always – joined by a stellar line up of featured artists which includes Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis among others.
