Fucked Up to Transform Toronto Gallery into Pop-Up Record Store
Published May 31, 2011With Fucked Up's highly anticipated hardcore punk rock opera David Comes to Life set for release on June 7 via Matador, the Toronto sextet are getting the hype machine rolling in a way that only they could. The band have already revealed plans for a live conversation with Alan Cross later this week, and now they're planning to turn a Toronto art gallery into a record store.
As AUX reports, the band will take over the Clint Roenisch Gallery (944 Queen St. W.) on June 7 at 12:01 a.m. Monday night, where they will set up a temporary record store to sell the new album on CD and vinyl, as well as their David's Town twelve-inch, their latest mixtape, a limited seven-inch and other swag.
The band will also be DJing tracks until 4 a.m., and perhaps best of all, there will be free beer provided by Steam Whistle. In other words, if you were planning to go out and buy David Comes to Life anyway, this is probably the most fun option.
If you haven't heard David Comes to Life yet, we've posted a stream of the whole thing that will be available for the next week. Check it out here. And for even more Fucked Up, the band's Damian Abraham tackled Exclaim! newly published June Questionnaire here.
