Iconoclastic Australian publisher Going Down Swinging even do launches differently to everyone else. Instead of a boring bookshop speech with bad wine, they’re putting on a huge Melbourne warehouse party with live tunes from Joelistics and Florelie Escano.
Drinks, late-night dancing, and a bit of literature on the side? Seems a good balance. Plus you get their new issue No. 34 and a free Bulmers cider with your $15 entry.
18 Dawson Street, Brunswick, from 8pm, Friday April 26.
