Yacht Club DJs: Great Northern Saturday; Coolangatta Hotel Sunday

 

We made it through the apocalyptic start to 2012 with no zombie sightings, but Australia’s own mash-up maestros Yacht Club DJs are about to make sure 2012 gets a dose of 50s horror throughout March and April when they hit the road on the ‘They Mostly Come At Night… Mostly’ tour.

Frightening both capital cities and regional towns, including Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, Yacht Club DJs take to the stage with their take on a B-grade horror flick – zombies, fake blood, plus lots of dancing and, as always, nudity.

Their first national tour since 2010, Australia best be wary of what they’ve got in store. Ballarat’s Guy Chappell-Lawrence and Gareth (Gaz) Harrison, better known as the Yacht Club DJs, will take their onstage antics to the next level, preparing to let night terrors loose on Australia.

Drop in for a drop of blood and a dose of the horrors at the Coolangatta Hotel on Sunday.
