MUSIC NEWS: Dream Nails Announce ‘Gig In A Box’ House Party Live Stream
With live streams becoming a regular part of our day-to-day lives, Dream Nails are getting in on the action with their own ‘Gig In A Box’ House Party live stream. Taking place on 5th September 2020 at 7.30pm BST, the show will see them playing their self-titled debut album in full following its release on 28th August, alongside answering fans questions.
Their unique take on a live-stream show will bring the true gig experience to fans’ homes as guitarist Anna Pearson explains: “We all miss playing live gigs. So we decided to bring Dream Nails’ riotous live shows straight to your living room! After months of lockdown, our fans are yearning for that authentic punk show experience, so we’ll send out a ‘Gig in a Box’ with all the kit you need to recreate a gig at home! As well as exclusive merch and other goodies, we’ve even consulted a surface designer to create a square of sticky venue flooring for you to stand on – how immersive is that?! See you in the pit!”
Yes, you read that right you’ll even get your own square of venue flooring to make up for what we’ve all missed out on over the last few months!
Speaking about the innovative take on a live stream, Jack of Alcopop! Records comments: “Live streamed and socially distanced shows have been keeping us going over the last few months, but here at Alcopop! we always like to do things a little differently… So we and Dream Nails have chatted to our pals at Signature Brew and INNERJI to bring the gig experience as close as possible RIGHT to your home. With drinks, window stickers (your house is the venue, right?) setlists, earplugs, wristbands and loads of other fun we were halfway there – but the real pièce de résistance is the sticky floor panel to stand on, so it’s right like being up the front in The Lexington again! Best of all, Dream Nails know how to bring a PROPER party, so just isn’t going to be just a live stream…. But you’ll have to pick up a box (or the debut album) to get in and find out exactly what it’s all about!”
The Dream Nails House Party #1 will be coming from Goldsmiths Music Studios in South East London with Joy Stacey of OMNII; a women and non-binary sound production collective undertaking sound engineering duties. The show has been supported by the PPL Momentum Music Fund, which you can find out more about HERE.
Limited numbers of ‘The Gig In A Box bundle’ are available now for £11 via DICE and also includes entry to a raffle to win exclusive prizes. Other ways to obtain entry to the event include pre-ordering the self-titled album HERE, or those who have tickets to one of the quartet’s postponed shows can email their ticket confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a streaming link. There’s not really any excuse to miss out on what looks set to be a great Saturday night!
Dream Nails‘ self-titled debut album is due for release on 28th August 2020 through Alcopop! Records.
