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 Attics Album Launch

Doors Open: 8:00PM

Colac psych-pop outfit, The Attics will launch their self-titled debut album. After locking themselves away in the studio following a relentless year of live performances from By The Meadow festival to a string of support slots with Ali Barter and Harts, The Attics return for one very special Melbourne show and the bands last gig of 2017.

The Attics deliver their own brand of melt-in-your-mouth psych-pop. Their stylish and carefree approach has crafted a self-titled debut album that’s filled jangly guitars and ear worming bass hooks that evoke the incidental traces of dust and glitter one mysteriously acquires beneath the flickering disco lights of a Summer festival.

The band will be joined by Blyolk, Beloved Elk and Sofala to celebrate the launch of their debut album.
