FREO GROOVE BOOK ABOUT FREO MUSOS

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, culture, entertainment, music, Uncategorized by freoview on June 25, 2018

 

FREO_chosen_1024x1024

 

UWA Press is publishing a new book by Bill Lawrie and Claire Moodie about Fremantle musicians that will soon be released.

‘It’s a bit of a haven. It’s a paradise for sure. Close to utopia for me.’ – Abbe May

Freo Groove is a window into the world of Fremantle musicians and the vibrant musical culture that has built up over generations.

From blues musician Dave Brewer, The Jam Tarts’ Sophie and Anna Gare, and The John Butler Trio; to Dom Mariani, Stella Donnelly and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Freo’s top musicians reflect on their lives, their art, and the city they call, or once called, home.

Twenty-nine portraits tell the story of Fremantle’s rich music scene and its long history, going right back to the Norm Wrightson Orchestra in the late 1940s, through Wayne Green’s chilling accounts of brawling, west-end dives in the early seventies, to the free and easy musical boom during the Americas Cup days, and finally to the fierce competition for gigs in the present day.

Freo Groove is about musicians who love their craft and are in for the long haul, wherever it leads.

HIDDEN TREASURES MUSIC FESTIVAL IN JULY

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, culture, music, Uncategorized by freoview on June 14, 2018

 

Hidden Treasures. July

 

The Fremantle HIDDEN TREASURES Winter Music Festival is on again on the Thursday in July, so something to look forward to.

In its 8th year the festival will be held in the historic West End of Freo in the Buffalo Club, Navy Club, the Orient, the National Hotel, and PS Art Space. There will also be concerts on the Fremantle Tram.

PS Art Space serves as the gathering-ground for hip hop, roots-reggae, beats and soul with Hyclass, Downsyde (featuring new member, Beni Bjah), Reef Prince, New Nausea, Feels, and Randa & The Soul Kingdom. Upstairs at the much-beloved National Hotel, the diversity shines with Emlyn Johnson, Turtle Bay Television, Leopard Lake, Jere Sosa, Kopano and more.

The Buffalo Club brings the energy and sonic joy of the Paige McNaught Experience, Debbie Downers, Terrible Signal, Nerve Quakes, Tomas Ford, Axe Girl and The Bible Bashers, with a special performance from The Runarounds (July 26), featuring former-Jam Tarts members and Fremantle-darlings Lucy Lemann and Sophie Gare plus family guests.

The Navy Club teams WAM Song Of The Year-winning-heavy-hitters J.F.K. with The Soul Movers (featuring Perth’s Lizzie McKenzie and former red Wiggle and guitar-wielding hot potato, Murray Cook), then turns the stage over to some of WA’s favourite musical couples (Jill Birt & Alsy McDonald, Joe Kapiteyn & Rachel Dease, Lee Sappho & Wayne Green, plus more) for Because The Night Belongs To Lovers (July 12) where they will talk and sing of many splendoured things.

The Navy Club also plays host on July 26 to the official launch of Freo Groove, Bill Lawrie and Claire Moodie’s book about Fremantle music culture, followed by performances from Lois Olney, Dave Johnston, Jim Fisher, John Wilson and Lucky Oceans, with Abbe May closing the night with a performance of her 2008 album, Howl & Moan, a love-affair all its own, in its entirety.

Hidden Treasures’ secret venue comes to the fold with Last Quokka, Bluenade, Roses For Ghosts, Flossy, Post-Depression Makeout Session and the reformation for Hidden Treasures of legendary Freo party-monsters, Prawns With Horns.

And following its acclaimed 2017 debut, The Fremantle Tram is back. Hosted by Justin Walshe it’s a good-time set on wheels that will pick up punters for a ride through some of Freo’s most picturesque spots, before stopping for acoustic performances from the quality likes of Oosterbanger, Cal Kramer (Southern River Band), David Lawrence and Jay Le Kat.

Tickets to Hidden Treasures are $20 on the night only. Tickets gain you entry to all venues: Navy Club, Buffalo Club, PS Art Space, National Hotel and our new secret venue. Hidden Treasures runs from 7:30pm-midnight on July 5, 12, 19 & 26.

BYE BYE FOR VICTORIA HALL FLY

Posted in city of fremantle, concerts, culture, fly by night club, music, Uncategorized by freoview on June 6, 2018

 

The Fly by Night Club, which has been an iconic part of the Fremantle music scene for more than 30 years, will leave Victoria Hall in August this year.

The City of Fremantle has gone out of its way to help the Fly survive, including offering half-price rent on Victoria Hall, spending more than $20,000 to improve the acoustics of the hall and giving them a $20,000 cash grant. Fremantle Council also agreed to waive the club’s outstanding debt to the City, which was around $70,000.

Despite lots of hard work by the Fly by Night board and staff and support from the City of Fremantle, the Fly has not been able to make Victoria Hall work as a profitable venue.

While not supporting a long-term extension of the lease when it was considered in February, the council did agree to a six-month, rent-free lease to allow the club to honour existing bookings and give it time to transition to a new arrangement.

Over the past few months the City has been working with the club to help them improve the sustainability of the business and find a new home in Fremantle. This has included exploring opportunities for the Fly to continue to present shows after August in other suitable venues in Fremantle, including the Navy Club, Fremantle Town Hall and South Fremantle Football Club event space.
