According to a few Australian sources, Daft Punk is gearing up for a “global album launch party” in the town of Wee Waa in Australia (population: 2,100) on May 17, which is the day Random Access Memories is said to be released in Australia.
inthemix is reporting that Sony Australia has purchased www.daftpunkweewaa.com, which is confirmed by this Who.is search, and while the easy question is “Why Wee Waa?,” we’re really just hoping they will be streaming this so we won’t miss it.
If you ARE in Australia, know that Wee Waa is about eight hours outside of Sydney, and tickets are supposedly limited to 4,000. Oh, and “Although the big event is set for the same day as the Wee Waa show, the council have confirmed that Daft Punk will not perform at the Wee Waa Show.” What could this mean? Are people paying money to go to an auditorium and listen to Random Access Memories?
