Tropical Fuck Storm to premiere feature film ‘Goody Goody Gumdrops’ in Castlemaine this month

You can meet ARIA-winners, Tropical Fuck Storm, at the premiere of their new film at Theatre Royal Castlemaine.

Described as “82 mins you’ll never get back”, Melbourne’s Tropical Fuck Storm will premiere their feature-length film Goody Goody Gumdrops at Theatre Royal Castlemaine, mainland Australia’s oldest continuously operating theatre, this month.

Premiering on Wednesday, December 8 at 8pm, as well as simultaneously screening at cinemas across the country, the regional brown carpet event will see the full band will watch the premiere in person at the Theatre Royal Castlemaine, giving fans a great opportunity to mingle with the punk-rock foursome.

Set over three days in Central Victoria on the banks of the Goulburn River at TFS HQ, Goody Goody Gumdrops is an ‘absurd, comic observational musical documentary’ and live album launch for Tropical Fuck Storm’s new album Deep States – which won the ARIA for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album in November.

Taking inspiration from Aussie classics like Wake In FrightThe Cars That Ate Paris and Picnic at Hanging Rock, the documentary follows the band as they prepare for a rock show in their barn, diving into their abject, weird and beautiful space.

“The weekend starts as the band welcomes you into their studio/cocktail lounge and teach you how to make their signature drink, The Tropical Fuck Fizz, then entertain you, Rat Pack style. There is an acoustic performance at dusk on the banks of The Goulburn River with the film climaxing in a wild unhinged rock show in the barn,” a description reads.

“There are too many dogs, there are bogan tarot readers, there are post-apocalyptic buses. There’s laughter and tears, great wisdom and beers.”

That pretty much sums up what you can expect from the film. Check out the trailer below.
