Wayne's World — and its sequel — gave the world many things. First, it gifted us two ace comedies that still stand up decades later. Also, it showcased Mike Myers and Dana Carvey at their best. And, there's all those instantly quotable catchphrases, plus the excellent soundtrack as well.

Whichever of these you adore more — or if you think they're all worthy at once — Saturday, July 2 is your time to celebrate. 2022 marks a whopping 30 years since the OG Wayne's World released, so The B.East is doing what needs to be done and partying on, naturally. Calling all fans of public access television, broadcasting from your parents' basement and Alice Cooper alike.

The Brunswick East bar's Wayne's World 30th Anniversary Tribute Party covers all the necessary bases, starting with a screening of the movie from 4pm — and beer pong as well. Dressing up is encouraged, with prizes on offer. Also, there'll be Wayne's World-themed food and booze specials for all you Babe-raham Lincolns.

But, that's just the beginning, because those tunes that helped make the movie such a gem will also be performed live from 9pm. Doing the honours is Even Flow, with special guests from Atomic Riot, Wolfpack and My Safe Word is Murder. Of course, we all know how much Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar like busting out a rendition of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' — so expect that to echo through the venue.

Wayne and Garth's love of 70s and 80s tunes runs much, much deeper, however. Indeed, rifling through their favourites would provide a pumping playlist for any shindig, which means this is bound to be one helluva night. That OG soundtrack includes Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Ugly Kid Joe, Temper of the Dog and, yes, Alice Cooper.

We're not worthy. Party time, excellent.
