Dr Martens is a brand, and THE boot, that has become synonymous with both punk and popular culture. Having launched the Boot Room earlier this year with the likes of FRANK CARTER & THE RATTLESNAKES, indie kings SHAME, and art punks WAR PAINT, the Camden based store has become the hub of alternative culture.
The exciting and eclectic programme is to continue both this month and next with the following exhibitions, shows and more hitting the boot room.

“It’s sick to be able to play a show for such an established brand.”
In what promises to be the most blistering performance yet, Leeds-based hardcore mob Higher Power will decimate the DM’s Boot Room before offering fans a chance to grab one-off merch, see an exhibition of amazing artwork from the band and catch two upcoming hardcore bands before the headliners take the stage.
“It’s sick to be able to play a show for such an established brand.” Comments bassist Peter Beefan. “I used to kick about in DrMartens when I was a little kid and my mum always told me they were the only boots that would last. She wasn’t wrong!”
