To celebrate the dance punk duo’s spot as this week’s feature album on national radio station triple j, DZ Deathrays are teaming up with Young Henrys for a series of pop-up bar sessions this weekend.
For one night only in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, the band will bring to life the imaginary bar depicted on the front cover of their current album, ‘Bloody Lovely’.
“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,” says Shane Parsons, lead vocalist and guitarist.
“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 s**t.”
Helping them with their pop-up bar stint will be Sydney brewers Young Henrys, who have announced they will be launching a re-brew of their previous collaboration with the musicians, the Bloody Lovely Czech Pilsner.
The session pilsner is an Aussie take on the classic Czech brew, with a blend of European and home flavours.
The pilsner will be on tap at each pop-up before being distributed to a few local pubs and bars across the country, including the Young Henrys Brewery Tasting Bar in Newtown.
