Section 8's 15th Birthday
With live art, projections, tunes and local brews, these birthday celebrations are rolling right through the Easter long weekend.
There aren't a whole lot of Melbourne bars that have managed to notch up 15 years slinging beers, tunes and good times. So it's only fitting that shipping container haunt Section 8 celebrates turning that big milestone this week with some rather grand festivities.
The much-loved laneway bar is taking advantage of the Easter long weekend to host a huge four-day birthday fiesta, kicking off this Thursday, April 1. And it's celebrating in true Melbourne fashion, with a jam-packed program of art, projections and music, championing over 55 local creatives.
Fort Heart and Fitzroy's BSIDE Gallery will serve up some unmissable live art from the likes of Creature Creature, Maya Irving, Gonketa and Section 8 favourite Simbiotic Vision. Meanwhile, a diverse array of sounds comes courtesy of live sets from acts like Afro-funk stars Cool Out Sun, hip hop producer Sensible J, Melbourne-based DJ and radio presenter MzRizk, Tokyo-born violinist Elle Shimada and stacks more. The tunes will be rolling right through the weekend and entry will be free, so drop by any time.
Rounding out the fun until Sunday, April 4, there'll be plenty of birthday beers by Kaiju Brewing — plus a special drinks menu put together by Bombay Sapphire.
