Get down at Section 8 on Saturday, May 20th from 2PM on for the Brooklyn Block Party during Good Beer Week Melbourne. We're teaming up with the wild minds at Section 8 and Ferdydurke to bring a huge line of international and local musicians to the streets of Australia to celeberate art and culture inspired by our home borough.
New York's own GE-OLOGY will be leading the lineup along with Brooklyn-born disciple of turntabalism Total Eclipse of the X-Ecutioners collective. Not to be outdone, Australia is bringing the noise with Melbourne based hip-hop/soul collective ESESE and DJs Jimmy Dawg and Mickey Edwards on the decks. A few of our favorite cans and kegs will be available throughout the night to pair with soul-lifting, slow cooked meat from Brass Knuckle BBQ, who will be firing up the grills along Section 8's laneway.
The above not enough? Call your mates, BYO hair grease and turn up the dial to 11. Upstairs, Ferdydurke will be hosting ‘Do or Dive’ - a nod to our favorite gritty watering holes, secret stages and stomping grounds that have played home to some of rock ’n’ roll’s best live music discoveries. Barbers and Brooklyn beer will abound for $5 cuts and cold cans while rock 'n' roll DJ Mermaid spins the good stuff and rockabilly legends The Rechords play a live set along with local heroes Rattlin' Bones Blackwood and the Night On the Tiles.
Entry is free and the block party will be going all night. We'll see you there.Back to all upcoming events ›
