MUSIC // Supporting Mental Health Awareness
Mental health issues pervade our community seemingly more than ever, but what’s worse is that misunderstandings, misinformation and a lack of awareness around mental health are still circulating and ever-present. This Thursday at Mojo’s see’s Morgan Bain, Tashi, Mossy Fogg, Helen Shanahan and Riley Pierce convene for a special event that aims to raise awareness around mental health and support the works of the brilliant folks at Beyondblue and Music Feedback.

MUSIC // Neon Sunset
Adam Christou, the man quite literally behind the music at local legends RTRFM 92.1, has curated a night, as part of Fremantle’s Hidden Treasures, at PS Art Space that is set to be an absolutely enormous night of sound. That sound, my dear readers, will be poured like steaming hot molten lava into your eardrums by none other than Spaceman Antics, Mt. Mountain and Leafy Suburbs.

Tickets may have sold out but when there’s a will there’s a way.
