Well, the weekend is arriving yet again. Significantly, it marks another week you’ve lived through and subsequently another week that you’ve marched closer to your inevitable death. It’s unfortunate but true. Now, you can either sit in a dark room at home and sulk about how much of 2015 you’ve wasted already or you can go out, enjoy the world, see the sights and engage your mind and your unconscious love of people and alcohol in the same vicinity. The choice, dear friend, is yours.

The stunning, ever-impressive songstress, Megan Washington, is playing at Mojo’s in Fremantle this evening. If you haven’t seen her, expect soul-filled melody, heartbreaking/remoulding lyrics and a show you won’t forget anytime soon.

MUSIC // The Big Splash (Grand Final) @ The Rosemount
Oh me oh my, it’s the Big Splash Band Comp grand final! There’s $10, 000 on the table, four bands that have clawed their way to the final and a list of judges so prestigious David Bowie would look like a nobody next to them. It’s all going down one way or another and it’s very, very exciting! Who’ll play dirty? Who’ll sacrifice themselves in a last minute conscious decision? Who’s going to beat up a heckler? The only way to find out is to go to this gig. Shit Narnia, The High Learys, Jacob Diamond and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are all acting out any/all of the training montages from Rocky. See our pick for the winner here.

MUSIC // Edie Green @ Mojo’s Bar
