Pet Shop Boys Tribute (Melbourne, 24 Jan)

#1 Post by retrofuturist » Thu 02 Jan 2020, 11:39 pm

Greetings,

There will be a Pet Shop Boys tribute night somewhere in the inner suburbs of Melbourne on Friday 24th January.

More details will be available once the event is formally announced.

I'm mainly letting you know now, 1... because I'm excited, and 2... so that if you're excited too, you can save the date.

Retro. :)

I hope this does something to cheer the hearts of many in SE Australia at such a difficult time, and while your PM just talks about the cricket, too..............

Thanks Ghost. Given the Tribute date coincides with the release of Hotspot (how ironic given your comment!) I'm sure it will be a good day for Melbourne-based Pet Shop Boys fans.

Oh that's awesome!!
I'll be there.

Looking forward to details.
Does tribute mean specifically a live cover performance?
Or is it more of an album launch party?

More an album launch party, albeit not an official one... let's call it a "new album celebration"!

if you have any particular music requests, let me know in advance!

Wow, sounds interesting. Depending on the details I might even consider flying there across the Tasman.

If you'd like a higher-res version of the image, message me your e-mail address and I'll send it through.

However, you could probably create it yourself using a hi-res image of the cover of Story, and then using the Pet Shop Boys fonts downloadable from the 10 Years Of Being Boring page.

The artwork is from a greatest hits compilation included free with a newspaper in the 00's. There are still some for sale on eBay. It's not a bad picture.

Would you agree to add to the playlist Burn? ;)

I know it's a complete off-topic, but do you feel safe in the biggest coastal cities right now? I travel a lot in SEA and wanted to visit Australia last November, but it had to be postponed. Now I don't know when I could realize this dream.
