Welcome to Barbershop Bicycle Sessions: the illegitimate brainchild of Bobby and the Pins, created for Melbourne Music Week’s 2013 Self-Made Series. Proudly supported by Melbourne Bike Share.
We’ve jazzed up some Melbourne Bike Share bikes with amazing self-made decorations and we’ll be riding along the city stopping at special locations to sing barbershop songs for you. Plus we’ll execute a few cheeky quips and cheesy dance moves, as always.
At one such location, you’ll get the chance to dress up in vintage regalia and get your very own polaroid with Bobby and the Pins. Talk about souvenirs!
If you’re fond of a good ol’ hashtag, feel free to get involved by posting pictures of our specially placed QR codes, shots of your amazing bicycle adventures or get a snap with us on the day. Just make sure to use: #bobbybikes
Now, for the locations…. Oh by the by, feel free to come to one location or ride along with us for the full show! Here’s all the times and places:
12PM – CORNER OF LITTLE LONSDALE AND SWANSTON
Out front of that handy Melbourne Bike Share stand*
*All Melbourne-lovin’ product placement is intentionally cheesy
12:25PM – OUT FRONT OF 240 LITTLE COLLINS STREET
A little off the beaten track, sneak up Little Collins off Swanston Street with us – we’ll share some secrets if you do…
12:50PM – CITY SQUARE, NEAR CNR COLLINS AND SWANSTON STREETS
We promise there’ll be no preachin’, just singin’ ‘n’ dancin’ (and adequate use of apostrophes).
1:15PM – CHEEKY LOCATION, LOOK FOR ENTRANCE TO HOWEY PLACE OFF LITTLE COLLINS
Grab a coffee while you’re here, hey? Avoid the crank, refuel that caffeine tank!
1:40PM – FINAL LOCATION, TO THE RIGHT OF THE STATE LIBRARY. GET YOUR POLAROID SNAP WITH BOBBY AND THE PINS HERE!
All you have to do is bring that sweet face of yours and we’ll provide a genuine polaroid picture for you to take home.
If you don’t make it down on Thursday, do swing on by on Saturday. Otherwise feel free to join our mailing list to keep up to speed with all the awesome performances we have in the works.
