Facebook Party

In our increasingly busy lives it's getting harder than ever to meet friends face-to-face. That's why we love social media - it helps us stay connected from the convenience of our laptop, smartphone or work computer. Facebook Events make get-togethers richer by letting us chat with other attendees and post photos afterwards. If only the events themselves were as fun and convenient!

Well now they are. On Thursday 19th March, New Waver and Proof of Concept invite you to crack a bottle, put on your favourite classic rock or dance playlist, and join the virtual party - without the hassle of leaving your home or workplace. Just join the Facebook Party event and start posting!

(Those unwilling to exit the physical world may join us at LongPlay, St Georges Rd, North Fitzroy, where the party will be broadcast on the data projector.)
