When dealing with a band that plays more than twice as many shows as there are weekends in a year, it might seem redundant to write up another show guide for a Pretty Littles show, but we at Happy have never been ones to stop doing things just because they’re redundant. Tonight, Wollongongians can let their hair down and catch the raucous show at Yours And Owls.
After the waves that Mash made last year (which we’re sure also triggered many a newfound love for those 5pm M*A*S*H* TV repeats), you should already be acquainted with some of the brusque bangers that make a Pretty Littles show what it is. Get your weekend started by banging your head and sustaining knee injuries to the genre jumping sounds of their debut LP alongside the tried and tested favourites from Fairweather and I Am Not From A Small Town.
Support comes from Illawarras own psych garage rockers T-Rex Radio who will be throwing around a couple of reverberated summertime gems which you can check out on their bandcamp. Citing the Beach Boys, Tame Impala and The Beatles as influences, the band go beyond their pop influences through the use of super-saturated tremolo and cavernous vocal delay effects. Definitely one worth getting down early for.
Tix are a ridiculously reasonable $7.00 and doors will be swinging open at 8pm.
