Dude, Where’s My Beer is a regional weekender set to take place early next month. Basically, a bunch of bands decided it would be good to get together and perform all-ages back-to-back shows across a Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the school holidays. Ain’t that sweet of ’em? Lining up for the trio of dates will be When Giants Sleep, Road to Ransome, Bayharbour, To the Grave and Interview with an Escape Artist. Headlining this ultimate little road trip is When Giants Sleep. From our political hotbed, the post-hardcore outfit has been in business since 2011. With comparisons to the likes of The Getaway Plan, The Amity Affliction and Alexisonfire, When Sleeping Giants have maintained a solid pace since their formation. They have shared the stage with a bunch of household names including Northlane and Buried in Verona and in 2013 performed on the Canberra leg of Vans Warped. Back in March they released their latest offering, Lucidity, which was backed up by a string of shows throughout April and May. Who will be the last one standing by the end of it? Which of the bands has the most endurance? Is it safe having so many bands in one spot at one time? And seriously, dude, where is my beer? Music Man Megastore, Bendigo – July 6.
