Little Bastard are seven boys from Sydney who know how to party. They play “punk country or party country”, and they play it loud. This year has been big for them, seeing them embark on two national tours, with The Snowdroppers and then with The Beards, play a bunch of solo shows between Melbourne and Sydney, a string of music festivals, while also managing to include a wild and beer-sticky residency at Oxford Art Factory. Anyone who has seen these dudes live knows that they bring seven times the normal energy of any artist to the stage.

Sydney’s string-fuelled party posse Little Bastard are next to take the stage, and boy do they know how to throw down! Their sound blends Americana, country, folk and bluegrass in glorious splendour, with each band member evidently enjoying their time onstage, constantly sharing moments with one another to dance, yelp and croon while creating vivacious tunes. Little Bastard’s set transports the audience from a venue in West End to a secluded barn out in whoop-whoop for one of the greatest hootenannies ever; thigh slappin’ good times – The Music

Wedged between the guys on stage is a double bass, a cajon, a fiddle, a harmonica and a banjo – there’s also lots of denim and hair. The point is, if you live in Sydney, you like to have fun and you haven’t seen Little Bastard live yet, you’re a fool! Get on down to Bondi on the 29th of August and see them play a rare free show at the Beach Road, with other awesome local bands The Hollow Bones and Callithump.
