DZ Deathrays Announce Bloody Lovely Pop-Up Bars

It’s already been a huge week for DZ Deathrays!
Along with the duo taking out #67 in the triple j Hottest 100 for ‘Shred For Summer’ and with their third album Bloody Lovely becoming this week’s Feature Album on triple j, I OH YOU and DZ Deathrays are thrilled to announce the official opening of the Bloody Lovely Pop-Up Bars to celebrate the release of the record this Friday 2 February via I OH YOU.
Opening for one night only at Brisbane’s Greaser Bar on Friday 2, Sydney’s Ramblin’ Rascal Tavern on Saturday 3 and Melbourne’s The Beaufort on Sunday 4 February, the Bloody Lovely Pop-Up Bars are the coming-to-life of the imaginary bar represented on the album cover and offer a chance for fans to fully immerse themselves in the world of Bloody Lovely.
Free entry, walk ups only, first in best dressed. Hell yes!
“We have always wanted to open our own bar at some point and I guess this is a good way to test the waters and also launch the new record with a bang,” explains Shane Parsons (guitar/vocals). “In the studio we were trying to get that feeling of a fun dive bar with our music playing in the background while people shoot pool and talk shit.”
DZ Deathrays (Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley) will be at each of the bars hanging out, playing a DJ set and generally ensuring that Bloody Lovely is as divey and debaucherous as they envisaged it to be!
Along with getting to hang out with the band, fans will have access to exclusive merchandise, including a limited edition translucent pink pressing of Bloody Lovely on vinyl, available only at the Pop-Up bars!
But that’s not all. To commemorate the album and opening of the Bloody Lovely Pop-Up Bars, DZ and Young Henrys have again teamed up and will be launching a re-brew of their collaborative Pills ‘N’ Thrills Pilsner at the Bloody Lovely Pop-Up Bars.
This is pretty much something you MUST get to!
