Iraamin’s music shares a powerful message about the reality of growing up in a refugee camp in war torn Burundi. His music speaks of his personal struggles in life and the shortcomings of succumbing to peer pressures. Heavily influenced by southern style hip hop this is a gig for all you heads out there.

Iraamin will also be joined by Melbourne rapper Tumi The Be who will have DJ Stay Nice laying it down behind him on the decks. Tumi will be dropping some smooth flows to help mellow out the night, while Allysha Joy (30/70) will close the night, helping us reconnect with ourselves.

The Pretty Littles Album Fundraiser

Facebook Event

G'day! Come on down to The Pretty Littles Car Boot Sale. We've been working like crazy on a new album and have decided to put on a special event for any true Littles folk out there who want to help us raise the cash we need to record these songs. That's why the ticket price is a little higher! You can get a ticket that comes in a limited Car Boot Sale only run of T-shirts too! One other thing we thought might be nice was to give you the option of choosing a song you wanna hear! We don't play a bunch of the old songs and often get requests for them, so the ticket buyers will dictate the setlist on the night.

We had a belter 2016/2017 playing the biggest shows of our little lives after the last record. We are keen to nurture that froth on the next one. Recording for us has always been a haphazard, quick and financially restricted process - like life really. Ultimately we make and play these songs for the people that like the band and so with your support we can continue to do that with the next record.

Come on down to the boot sale, pick a song and have a beer with us.

Lots of love from Goolsa, Pack, Auntie Boydy and Boo-Boo.
