WILL FREO CITY FLY SWAT MUSICIANS CLUB?

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, fly by night club, music, Uncategorized by freoview on May 24, 2018

 

I received new information about the rumour that the Fly by Night club might be leaving Fremantle.

My informant told me that City of Fremantle officers will recommend to Council to terminate the Fly’s lease for Victoria Hall, so it will be a Council decision to keep the live music venue going or let is die.

Money is probably the issue here, so we will have to wait and see if Fremantle Council is willing to financially support the Fly by Night club again, or let them go.

Before the Fly moved into Victoria Hall Clancy’s offered to manage the heritage building as a live music venue and run the bar and daytime cafe, but that offer was not taken up by Fremantle Council.

FLY AWAY FROM FREMANTLE?

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, culture, fly by night club, music, Uncategorized by freoview on May 24, 2018

 

A musician who spoke at the Fremantle Council meeting last night claimed that the Fly by Night club will be leaving Fremantle next month.

I have heard the rumour before and am also aware that the Fly wanted a rent reduction from the City of Fremantle, but I have no confirmation that the musicians club will vacate Victoria Hall.

It would be sad to lose a live music venue, so I am keen to find out what is going on.

Does any of Freo’s View readers know more about it?

I just picked this up on Facebook from WA Premier Mark McGowan, so Fremantle musicians take advantage of it and try to get your fair share of government funding and support!

NEW FREMANTLE MUSIC MURAL

Posted in art, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, music, Uncategorized by freoview on April 26, 2018

 

Federal Hotel art

 

Good to see the owners of the Fremantle Federal Hotel beautifying the laneway wall with a large mural by local artist Art by Destroy. It is still a work in progress but very Freo

Walk down Paddy Troy Lane to get the best look at it, and check out the hotel’s daily specials.

Congratulations to Fremantle’s Clancy’s Fish Pub which is celebrating its 30th birthday!

During my good old drinking days I spent many hours a week at Clancy’s drinking Guinness and wine and eating lots of fish&chips, whitebait and fried mice.

I danced to exhaustion on the great music of the Zydecats almost every Sunday night and attended many festivals Clancy’s organised in Princess May Park.

The Clancy’s crew are the best people and the family atmosphere in the pub makes sure there are very few occasions of the odd bad drunk.

Melbourne Cup at Clancy’s was a really day out where I caught up with friends at 11am to stagger home early evening.

Clancy’s is a truly Freo icon that looks after children as well as it looks after grown ups.

Happy birthday Fisher brothers and all the staff and thanks for all the good times!

NETWORK FOR FREMANTLE MUSICIANS

Posted in city of fremantle, community, music, Uncategorized by freoview on March 21, 2018

 

The Fremantle Network event on Monday March 26 is all about musicians and trying to create a network for them.

Freo CAMO is the brainchild of Ben Bowtell, the musical director of Wasamba. It’s the name he has given the idea for a community-based network for local Community Arts and Musical Organisations (CAMO).

Fremantle is a hive of creativity, with many local groups who come out and play at festivals, events, community gatherings and gigs. Ben would like to see more collaboration between these groups, with a network established to share information, resources and perhaps even rehearsal or storage space.

Ben will share his vision for CAMO and a more connected community arts and music scene. 6pm Monday 26 March. Upstairs at the National Hotel

Come along if you are an artist, a musician or part of a community arts group that would like to get involved in a wider local network of likeminded creative collaborators.
