Doc Martens Reveal Location for Pop-Up Gig Venue and Store

Docs are popping up in St Kilda for some live sets and overseas-only releases.

Docs have been kicking for decades. Your parents' soles are probably still relatively intact. Punks wear Docs. Pop stars wander to Starbucks in Docs. Somehow they've never lost that lovin' feeling since the first pair of Dr. Martens rolled off the production line in 1960.

Now they're fusing their long-loved lace-ups with a solid live music lineup, with their #standforsomething pop-up store and concert series. Taking over Tongue & Groove on St Kilda's Grey Street, the Docs pop-up will stock boots, shoes, and Dr. Marten's products not available in Australia so you can be That Guy at your next coffee date.

But it ain't all lace ups at the pop-up. Ahead of the general public launch Docs are hosting some pretty killer gigs in the space — Band of Skulls (June 18), Kingswood (June 17) and Stonefield (June 16). Unfortunately they've already closed the ballot for the gigs, but keep an eye on their Facebook page for any updates.

After the gig-goers have checked out the merch, the Docs pop-up store will open up to the public from Thursday June 19 to Sunday June 22, so we can rifle through the Docs we'd usually only find online.

You can find Docs at Tongue & Groove, 16 Grey Street, St Kilda from June 16. Hours are Thursday and Friday 11am - 7pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am - 5pm.
