Death From Above

DFA 1979 to give away free tattoos at pop-up shop

Want a free tattoo? Want a free tattoo from Death From Above 1979? While Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler won't be poised over you with a needle (probably?), Death From Above 1979 is celebrating their comeback album in Toronto by hosting a pop-up shop on West Queen West complete with free ink for a lucky few and limited edition merch for those lucky enough to have cash lying around after OVO. No word yet on what DFA plans to re-name Toronto.

The semi-legendary Toronto duo only released two EP's and one album in the mid aughts, but their limited output hit the mark with a generation of MySpace users looking for punk rock to dance to - and put eyeliner on to without having to cry it off later. Those were different times. After a reunion and a string of live shows, they band will release The Physical World, their first album in a decade, on Last Gang September 9.

The Physical World: Pop Up Shop & Tattoo Parlour will be open Wednesday September 3 and Thursday September 4 at at Edward Day Gallery (952 Queen St. West). If you want a tattoo, I'd advise showing up before the slated 10am opening time. Then you can catch DFA 1979 at Riot Fest along with the other bands you put in your top 16 on MySpace this weekend at Downsview Park.
