The tight-trousered synth pop outfit – The 1975 – will descend upon the Lower East Side tomorrow. In a stunt to celebrate the release of their sophomore record, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, the Manchester, UK gang is hosting a dedicated pop-up shop on Orchard Street.

The 1975 super fans across social media remain in a tizzy to figure out where it’s gonna be held. We now have that information. Head over to 118 Orchard Street (at Delancey), the cornershop currently curated by WALLPLAY (formerly home to Moscot). The free, all-ages event begins tomorrow morning at 10am.

More info as it develops. Meanwhile, expect some overnight campouts for the die-hards.
