Paradise City opened the gates to an orchard of beautiful, glam sleaze rockers on Weds 12 March. Madame Jo Jo’s in the dark heart of Soho, London was the new location for the billed ‘Ultimate Hedonistic Rock Event’. This is no dark and dingy venue, far from it. Inside Jo Jo’s it is a throwback to a bygone era of glamour, with crimson velvet banquette seating and gilded art-deco balustrades. Madame Jo Jo’s stylishly retro interiors lend itself to the set of a Mötley Crüe Video or a LA Sunset Strip club of the decadent 80’s exactly what the organisers set out to achieve.
