Aussie punk rockers Alex The Kid have come up with a very interesting way of raising money for their own tour, announcing a fundraising show where they will play someone else’s songs.
The five-piece band, who won the triple j Unearthed competition to open this year’s One Night Stand, will play Blink-182’s second album Dude Ranch from start to finish during a one-off Perth show.
Funds raised from that show will go to their yet-to-be-announced national tour on which they probably will spend more time playing their own tunes than Blink-182’s.
Why Blink 182’s Dude Ranch, we’re not entirely sure. But, it does mean you’re going to hear songs that not even Blink-182 take on anymore plus favourites like Dammit and Josie.
It’s all set to go down in North Perth on 17th June with support from El Capitan, Hope Street and All In All. No word on where to grab tickets yet but presumably they’ll be available on the door.
