Wollongong locals have been itching for more live music after the sad and sudden closing of RAD Bar earlier this year.
But there is excellent news, because local promoters Yours & Owls have just excitedly announced the details of their new Wollongong venue La La La’s.
Marking an exciting new chapter for Wollongong, La La La’s will offer booze, tasty food and of course, the live music their scene has been craving.
Part dive bar, part live music and arts space, the 150 cap area will be booked by the Yours & Owls team, with former UOW UniBar manager Nathan Stratton at the wheel. Speaking of the space, he says:
“It’ll have a pinball, pool and relaxed pub feel. We’re also focused on making sure it’s got just a hint of them small bar vibes. We’re calling it a small pub and we’re pretty keen to build that kind of community around it!”
La La La’s will officially launch on Thursday 14 November with local four-piece TOTTY. The venue will then round out the year with a full program of events including a Rad takeover, The Pinheads takeover, Luen and her female DJ workshop, Pissfart Records takeover, and Music Farmer’s 15th Birthday with Shining Bird and other special guests.
Yours & Owls first opened as a hole in the wall coffee shop nine years ago and has since developed into an institution for Wollongong music, now making an impact that reaches far beyond the coast. The team, who also run the ever-popular Yours & Owls and Farmer & The Owl Festivals, currently book UniBar, Dicey Rileys, North Wollongong Hotel, Kambri ANU in Canberra, and previously the well-loved RAD Bar.
Yours and Owls have said that they are committed to making La La La’s Wollongong’s best venue for new talent and good times – and we are looking forward to seeing the results.
