PERTH

Live Review: Tkay Maidza + Willow Beats + Porsches - Capitol, Perth (19.09.15)

After exploding onto every festival for the past year Tkay Maidza has kicked of her own national tour, getting down to Perth on Saturday night with a slew of supports all showing off new songs. Although the night started extremely early, the young crowd were more than happy to start partying with most flashing their fresh merch (Tkay has socks guys) and enough energy to keep the acts smiling.

Photo Gallery: The Rubens + Saskwatch + Winterbourne - The Astor Theatre, Perth (18.09.15)

The Rubens at the Astor Theatre

The Rubens play at the Astor Theatre in Perth where they put on excellent performance. Joining them were the energetic Saskwatch and Winterbourne. Our photographer Stuart Sevastos was to capture the highlights of the night.

Live Review: The Waifs - Perth Concert Hall (15.09.15)

Perth Concert Hall, normally home to the likes of Schubert and Beethoven, was transformed into Perth’s largest and grandest folk club on Tuesday night for the return of hometown favourites The Waifs as they continued the West Coast leg of their national tour in support of new record Beautiful You. There was wolf whistling, mass sing-alongs and I’m pretty sure I spied some dancing in the aisles – not your typical concert hall crowd at all.

Theatre Review: Between Solar Systems - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through to 26th September)

Between Solar Systems is the latest work from emerging Perth theatre group Second Chance Theatre. Written and directed by Scott McArdle the play centres on the actions of Vincent, the sole survivor of Earth’s cataclysmic sea level rise, or is he? I’m going to try and get through this review without giving away too many spoilers; but there’s no guarantees so read ahead at your peril.

Photo Gallery: Gang of Youths + GRRL PAL + Fait - Capitol, Perth (12.09.15)


Pictured: GRRL PAL

Gang of Youths played an awesome show to a sold out crowd at Capitol. Supporting them were GRRL PAL and Fait. Stuart Sevastos was there to capture the highlights of the night.

Live Review: Joshua Radin + David Lazarus - Rosemount Hotel, Perth (06.09.15)

Sunday evening saw Joshua Radin kick off his Australian tour with an intimate gig at Perth’s Rosemount Hotel. It might have been a Sunday night and it might have been father’s day but that didn’t stop a sizeable crowd come out for Radin’s first ever gig in Perth; “the chillest place on earth” apparently.

Live Review: The Jungle Giants + Art of Sleeping - Metropolis, Fremantle (04.09.15)

Touring for the release of their latest album Speakerzoid, we caught The Jungle Giants on the first leg in Fremantle and had one heck of a party. With a night full of energy and oozing sincerity from both acts The Jungle Giants brought their long list of popular tracks with them and proved why they are one of the indie darlings of the year.

Theatre Review: Latitudes - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through September 5th)

Latitudes is the new play from emerging Perth theatre group The Lost Boys, and marks the debut theatrical work from acclaimed screenwriter, film maker and musician Mark Walsh. Directed by Mikala Westall it is a work suffused with ideas of memory and of forgetting. An at times clever, meditative and mesmerising piece Latitudes has ensured that the new season at the Blue Room is off to a strong start.

Theatre Review: All That Glitters - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through August 29th)

Refugees, asylum seekers and broader immigration have long dominated headlines and political slogans from all parties within Australia, and more recently abroad in Europe and the UK. For many people it is a polarising issue, for Perth theatre group The Last Great Hunt it provided the starting point for new work All That Glitters. A work initially devised as a theatrical response to Australia’s (both its government and its citizens) reaction to asylum seekers, refugees or “boat people” heading for Australia. Director and co-devisor Gita Bezard mentioned in her programme notes that she hoped the play would “provoke a conversation” amongst other things, and I feel it certainly does that; and thanks to the fact sheets placed in the bar and in the foyer, it should at least be an informed conversation too.

Theatre Review: Hamlet - Heath Ledger Theatre, Perth (touring Nationally until 6th December)

Of all of Shakespeare’s works, Hamlet is perhaps his most oft-performed and perhaps most recognised (of the tragedies at least). Indeed as I write this review; a version of the play with Benedict Cumberbatch playing the titular anti-hero is in previews and dominating news headlines back in the UK and beyond.
