Homebrew have been talking about dropping their debut album (a double album!) for quite a few months now. The release date is set, and they plan a 48 hour launch party in a former brothel. Cos that's how they roll. I've been to a few events in this salubrious location (called Shooters), and can report they still have a stripper pole in the middle of the bar.
Album presales on iTunes on April 13. Release party May 5 & 6, tickets $30, and you get a deluxe edition of the album on entry. Everything I've heard from Homebrew recently suggests this album will eclipse every other local release this year. Eagerly anticipated doesn't even begin to cut it....
Venue; Shooters, 330 New North Road, Kingsland, Auckland.
10am Saturday 5 May – 10am Monday 7 May, featuring beer and performances from Home Brew and special guests. Tickets available from Under The Radar from Monday 16 April.
