Smack dab in the middle of Perth's busy West End - sitting just 300m from the Murray and Hay Street shopping malls - is the Ibis Perth's 192 room hotel. Though only listed as a three star establishment, it seems unfair to throw it in the same category that many seedy motels around the country seem to get. The Ibis chain are in a league of their own. This may be a low cost hotel, but the decor and amenities easily put it on par with its four and five star cousins in terms of both comfort and experience.
After an overcast day before the prospect of going to a gig on an exposed hill off the beaten track was slightly worrying, but then Perth weather has its way of switching seasons to suit. Driving up the highway with a full moon and pink skies it wasn’t hard to find the ambience as you made your way up the dirt road to Redhill Auditorium.
The hype had been building for this show since the tour sold out shortly after release.

Over the course of his burgeoning career, Finegan Krukemeyer, still only 33, has been commissioned and written 70 works, across 5 continents and multiple languages. With many of those works designed to be watched and enjoyed by children. His latest production (this time for adults), the wonderfully and loquaciously titled Those Who Fall in Love Like Anchors Dropped Upon the Ocean Floor, last week celebrated it’s world premiere at Perth’s Blue Room Theatre.
Thelma Plum reminds me a lot of Emma Louise, that same gentle shy awkwardness on stage, but utterly entrancing when she lets those vocals loose, with songs that foster adoration. Thelma played the Amplifier Bar last Saturday night as part of her Monsters tour and totally wooed the Perth crowd.
