Remember how trap music went kinda mainstream early this year and now they’re using dubstep on childrens’ toy commercials, and everyone who wasn’t a devoted listener kind of closed their eyes and turned away because it was too painful to watch? Well, some of those devoted listeners haven’t given up, and Perth has been getting pretty weird with the bass lately. Trust us, check out Jack Rabbit Slim’s tonight, with doors opening at 9pm. Tickets $15 & available through the link. UK bass heavyweights in no short supply.
Hip Priest and Verge Colleciton join Braves tonight in Leederville to launch their new single to all of their friends – and that happens to be you. Braves are fully legit, to the point that fuckin’ Rolling Stone Australia showed them love. Swing down to get rowdy in support.
Best portside town Bazaar this end of WA – open all weekend.
Free tickets available via the link above, which I promise you also means you can just walk in. It’s the Esplanade, it’s Fremantle, it’s a vegan oriented event. I doubt there will be perimeter fences. All things veg and cruelty free, from 10am to 5pm!
Local pos vibes clan Jugular are doing their thing starting at 5pm tomorrow night at Boo Park ampitheatre, which is in the back corner of the Fremantle golf course, though I can’t give better directions because I still don’t know which way is north. Gold coin donations greatly appreciated, good mood mandatory.
Leederville. Lights. Markets. No cars. People walking around in groups on the street. That big tree. Covered in lights. Very beaut. All together at once. Local businesses too. Fun. Hip locales. Sunday.
Markets at The Bird, haven’t you heard? Markets at the bird, that’s the word! Self explanatory. This Sunday from lunchtime to 3pm. Don’t worry, I will not be rapping.
North Perth Bowls Club is hosting this month’s Vinyl Haul which promises to offer even the most “over it” and self-hating vinyl fan a few indulgent take-homes on their way out the door. Seriously though, great stuff, cheap prices and local sellers welcome.
