Daft Punk chose the tiny town of Wee Waa in Australia as the venue for the official launch of their sparkling new album, Random Access Memories. The party was intimate but “full on”, with just over 2,000 fans in attendance.
Where is Wee Waa?:
Wee Waa is home to the CSIRO telescope satellite dish, which is why is was chosen by the quirky french duo as the launch pad for their latest album. The dish has been featured in a promotional video dancing away to Get Lucky, check it out below:
Even the local school kids were getting into the groove as part of the build up to the launch event which rocked the town yesterday evening (Fri 17th May 2013).
iTunes and Spotify have featured streaming versions of the new album since the start of this week meaning that the entire world had chance to check it out prior to the official launch party in Wee Waa. Some were optimistic that Daft Punk front men Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, would make an unscheduled appearance. This didn’t materialise, however the party was still a huge success and all in attendance seemed ecstatic just to be there.

i love their new album. it is my absolute favorite album. However, as much as i love and respect Daft Punk, i don’t think it would be fair to make unscheduled concerts. i live in a city where Daft Punk is not well know. But i am just a few hours off from Chicago. If Daft Punk makes a surprise appearance in Chicago, which i’m sure they will, I would not have the slightest chance to be able to see them. I believe that they should at least inform people that they are arriving a month before they perform. This would give me, and many other people, a bigger chance to see the concerts.
