Bootleg Rascal Announce The ‘Booty Block Party’
Yugambeh/Gold Coast-based part-time musicians Bootleg Rascal have decided to be a band again by announcing their very own curated event titled ‘BOOTY BLOCK PARTY‘ – to be held at The Lady Hampshire, Eora/Camperdown on Saturday, March 16.
Inspired by angry phone calls and emails from their management, the band have agreed to actually do something, by booking 13 exciting emerging artists across two stages for a day of family friendly fun. ‘BOOTY BLOCK PARTY’ is set to feature the likes of Dante Knows, Lazy Ghost, Jess Reiss, King Ibis, Atlas Franklin Alexander, Sophian, Awa Mbaye and Bootleg Rascal themselves, rounding out the main stage. They’ll be joined by Lyall Moloney, Chandler Jewels, MAXINE, Christian Adjeisa, Camino Gold and Malaika Mfalme, who’ll grace the courtyard stage.
Jimmy Young of Bootleg Rascal describes the motivation behind the event:
“We’ve always wanted to put on our own event with a bunch of mad artists, and although the Goldy is our new home, it felt right to us to do the first one right back where the Bootleg Rascal story started… in sh*thole Sydney, dewda. Can’t wait to hit the Grant Packett’s and share stories of the cost-of-living crisis and unreliable public transport, with a bunch of legends who pay exorbitant rent to slumlords, so they can live on top of each other. Guess we’ll play some tunes too.”
Additional to the live music programming, the event will also feature DJs and Carlito’s Cake Stall serving up some magic treats. The mystifying ‘Glory Story Hole‘ will also launch – a shadowy activation that will leave punters feeling uneasy, but will generate fundraising efforts for charity, with proceeds to be donated to Support Act. The ‘Booty Burger’, chips and beer combo will be available for $20.
