We head out to one of Surry Hills’ many breakfast eateries and get some slow-burning energy for tonight’s show. Compliments to the chef for his/her generous rations of baked beans and whoever was the first deadset legend to invent the delectable process of sauteing a mushroom.
After the feed, we head down to Fender to test out some six-stringers. Rock rule #72: Any riff sounds 38 times harder and heavier if you pull a mean-ass face to go along with it.
We decide to hit the brews early, and head to the Young Henry’s intimate brewery in Newtown. Here’s a picture of myself being a thoroughly trained journalist – wearing a Fila tracksuit and showing Danny the stupid amount of Versace items I’ve purchased to distract myself from the stagnant and purposeless nature of my life. #Journalism #EngagingContent
Hugs all around from BC. Can you feel the love?
We take a quick stroll over to Mary’s, the burger Mecca of the Inner-West and get stuck into a few more schooners. Danny devouring a pre-gig burger and simultaneously flashing his custom rose gold Dune Rats ring. Stay shinin’, Danny. Never change.
The floor of The Enmore Theatre before all of the shirtless circle pits and shoeys.
Engaging in some illegal Gamblor activities backstage…
Danny emerges victorious and celebrates with this highly impressive flat foot squat.
All that gambling has us ready for some hearty rock n’ roll. The lads hit the stage and Brett whips his hair back and forth with undeniable vigour. The last time that I saw Dune Rats was in Byron Bay where Aaron Girgis got me buckled off AC/DC bourbon and I ended up at a random apartment talking to someone about the possibilities of flying a helicopter into Splendour In The Grass. This show is equally as fun.
If you’re still drinking beer from alcoholic beverages from a can or a bottle in 2016, you fucked up.
Danny shows off his seemingly endless arsenal of facial expressions.
Cheers to Dune Rats for being a bunch of absolute legends! Here’s to more beers, missing band members and unbeatable banter. Make sure you grow your hair and catch these guys live in the near future – Extra points if you get shirtless on the dancefloor.
