Dune Rats Are Fighting To Save A Humble Aussie Bowlo, And They Need Your Help

Written by Tom Williams on November 14, 2017

Aussie rockers and dudes-on-every-festival-lineup, Dune Rats, are urging fans to take part in a fundraising event for one of their favourite Aussie bowling clubs.

The Coorparoo Bowls Club in Brisbane is under threat from a high-rise development, so Dune Rats are calling on fans to show their support by heading along to the bowlo’s fundraising event on Sunday, 19th November.

The ‘Save Our Green Space’ community day will feature performances from surf punks Concrete Surfers and country bluegrass trio The Galilee Three, as well as a sausage sizzle and speeches from local committee members and members of parliament.

“It’s important to keep the Coorparoo Bowls Club as an actual community centre for the public to enjoy amongst all of these shit highrises that are popping up everywhere,” says Dune Rats’ B.C. Michaels.

“There’s a complete oversupply of this bullshit already and Coorparoo is quickly becoming a big slab of concrete. Come down on Sunday, drink some beers, have some bowls and have some fun — the way it should be.”

Supporters of the Coorparoo bowlo are concerned that a proposed development of aged-care residences may be built over the club’s current greens.

See below for all the details about the club’s upcoming fundraising event, and tell ’em Dunies sent ya.
