You can't say that Brisbane's DZ Deathrays don't know how to launch an album. For their third record Bloody Lovely, they're heading out for a night of drinks and tunes — and they want everyone to come along. Don't worry, you won't be that awkward person wondering if the band is standing next to you. With Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley hitting the decks for a DJ set, they'll be easy to spot.
Given that the album releases on February 2, that's when they're heading to Greaser to hang out in their very own pop-up watering hole. The record cover art features a dive bar, after all, so they're bringing it to life for one night. Isn't stuff like that what being a muso is all about?
The ARIA-award winning Brisbane outfit will also be re-launching their beer collaboration with Young Henry's, Pils 'n' Thrills, so prepare to wet your whistle with their limited-edition pilsner. Entry is free, and you'll also be able to pick up band merch plus Bloody Lovely — of course — on translucent pink vinyl.
