“Thank God Its Monday” Industry Nights

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Carlton Dry has come to the party again, announcing today the second round of ‘THANK GOD IT’S MONDAY’ industry night events.

Monday nights will be rejuvenated as the likes of electro-pop supremos Miami Horror, indie duo Philadelphia Grand Jury, rocksters Bluejuice and club favourites Bag Raiders take to stages across the country.

Developed as a reward for the hard working bar staff who regularly sacrifice their weekends to serve the public, these free events will hit Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth in January and February.

“Carlton Dry is bringing the industry night back to Monday night”, said Vincent Ruiu, Group Marketing Manager Carlton Dry. “Working the weekend shift in a bar can be a frustrating scenario. While all your mates get to head out and enjoy the best gigs and club nights, you’re busy working. When Monday finally rolls around and you have a night off there’s nothing on.”

If you work in a bar, club, hotel, venue or restaurant, visit www.facebook.com/TGIM to get you and a mate on the free guestlist, plus be the first to know about Carlton Dry’s forthcoming “Thank God It’s Monday” events.

“We have enlisted some really exciting artists for Thank God It’s Monday, to ensure those working weekends are rewarded for their hard work and can experience great bands and DJs on their time off too.”

Stay tuned as Carlton Dry will be breathing life back into Monday nights throughout 2011 as more events with the very best entertainment will be announced soon.
