DFA 1979 is going to celebrate their new album by giving you a free tattoo
There will also be super limited edition merch for fans of band that are less than keen on getting inked.

Have you been contemplating getting a DFA 1979 inspired tattoo? Admit it, you have. Even if we’ve never met, I can tell you definitely want the tattoo artist to draw a portrait of you where they replace your nose with an elephant trunk. If that is the case—which we’ve already established that it is—then this piece of news is for you.

DFA 1979 is hosting a two day pop-up this week where they will be giving away free tattoos (no word yet if Keeler and Grainger will be the ones doing the inking). The pop-up will also have limited edition merchandise—one can dream that the band still has copies of their first full-length on pink vinyl to sell, right?

If all of this seems rather elaborate, rest assured there’s a reason the band has gone out of its way to create this pop-up. On Friday, DFA will release The Physical World, their first new full-length in more than 10 years and the follow-up to the critically acclaimed You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. For two guys that weren’t speaking to one another for most of the decade since You’re A Woman’s release, this new album marks a dramatic reversal for the band. A preview of the album can be streamed here.

The pop-up will be open on Wednesday and Thursday of this week at the Edward Day Gallery (952 Queen St. West). The pop-up is set to open at 10 a.m. both days, though those hoping to actually get a free tattoo should likely show up ahead of the pop up’s opening. [via blogTO].
