Last week saw iconic East London pub, The Macbeth, play host to the global launch of KR3W’s Rights Refused collaboration with legendary photographer Charles Peterson.

LA-based skate brand KR3W are known for their collaborations with creative personalities from the underground. As part of the labels Rights Refused program, KR3W have brought in Charles Peterson to produce a capsule collection in celebration of the images that immortalised the birth of Grunge.

Famed for capturing some of the most influential bands of the 80’s and 90’s, Peterson unlocked his archive to present an extraordinary exhibition of candid imagery upstairs at the recently renovated Macbeth, giving guests a rare insight into the Seattle scene at the birth of grunge.  Featuring bands like Nirvana, Mudhoney, and Pearl Jam, guests reminisced about growing up with these bands which was apparent throughout the night. The night also featured a short film on Peterson as well as live preformances by UK grunge and garage rock revivalists Puffer, Paws, and Darlia. As you’d expect the night was packed out with the best of London’s underground music, art and skate communities.

The KR3W x Charles Peterson Exhibition is open to the public for a limited time only:

MANCHESTER –13th February, launch event from 7pm – NOTE Skate Shop, 61 Thomas Street M4 1NA

LONDON– 19th-21st February (launch event, 19th Feb from 7pm),  Parlour Skate Shop, 59 Hackney Road
