If you remember it all, you weren’t really there because we don’t and have no idea where all that time went. It’s Ding Dong Lounge’s 7thBirthday Extravaganza Saturday 12th June and this seven year old ain’t having pass the parcel and fairy bread – this is going to be one ripsnorter of a party. In the last seven years Ding Dong has hosted every Australian band of note; from You Am I to Wolfmother, The Drones to Cut Copy and more internationals than you can poke a stick at. It’s also had more parties and late nights than Lemmy from Motörhead and we want you to join us for this one. Pulling out the big guns, we’ve got a couple of supergroups headlining – Mike Noga & The Gentlemen of Fortune will be warming up for their tour with Band of Horses, while Davey Lane (You Am I, The Pictures) introduces his new supergroup, the Psychotic Pineapples. We can’t tell you who’s in the band but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. Joining this huge bill will be smoking hot garage psych-rock wunderkinds The Frowning Clouds, plus our hotly tipped rising krautrock stars The Ovals and the rolling thunder alt-country of Big Smoke.
We’re looking forward to seeing staff past and present and invite anyone who’s been a regular over the years to come and do it all again. Doors open early at 7pm, $10 jugs 8 – 9pm and birthday surprises galore.
