Zydecats at the Club Sunday May 8th

 

Hey kids, here something special to buy mum for Mothers Day this Sunday! The dance inspiring Zydecats are playing at the Fremantle Workers Club at the South Fremantle Football Club at Fremantle Oval this Sunday for next to nothing, so bring mum along for high energy music that makes you feel alive in every pore of your body.

To make it even more special Freo music legend Jim Fisher will be performing with the Zydecats, so don’t let mum miss out on it.

Entry fee is $ 5 for members and just $ 10 for non members and the fun is on from 6-9 pm.

It’s happy hour from 5.30to 6.30 and Venezuelan food will be for sale.

PRINCESS MAY MARKETS ON THIS FRIDAY!!

Posted in fremantle, markets by freoview on March 19, 2015

The lovely PRINCESS MAY MARKETS next to Clancy’s is on again this Friday from 5-9 pm after we had to cancel it due to rain last week.

There will be live music on the stage by Freo legend Jim Fisher and international food stalls with yummy things to eat, whilst Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, graffiti art classes by Lady Bananas, and Fairy Sandie will keep the children occupied.

It’s going to be a very pleasant 29 degrees tomorrow, so come to Fremantle’s inner east, where there is a lot of free on-street parking and also plenty of paid parking at the Point Street and Beach street carparks. See you there!

TIM MINCHIN PROMOTES FREO MUSOS IN SYDNEY

Tim Minchin

 

The City of Fremantle should hand the keys to the city to TIM MINCHIN for the great promotion he did at the Sydney Opera House. Tim decided to make the gig on the steps of the famous Sydney landmark a bit of a family reunion and invited his muso family members from Freo over.

Imagine the stage with Freo legend Jim Fisher and his son Tom plus the children of Clancy’s co-owner John Fisher and you’ll get the feeling.

Joe Fisher, the other part of the Clancy’s team, told me today it was quite emotional and that the family had many long nights and a few drinks, so thank you Tim Minchin for putting Freo and it creative musicians on the map!

On another note; Tom Fisher is in charge of organising the great music on the live stage at the Princess May Markets on Fridays. This Friday ZAKHUTA will entertain the crowd in the park next to Clancy’s!

Fremantle’s West End was well alive last evening with the grand final of the HIDDEN TREASURES winter music festival, with concerts at the Buffalo and Navy clubs, Merenda art gallery,  and the Kucha Pecha slide show event at the Moores building. Yummy curries were on the menu at the Moore&Moore cafe.

Out on High Street here was a trio playing in the back of a van, while the retailers kept their doors open despite the inclement weather.

Kill Devil Hills‘ concert at Merenda was a total sell out and the Low Key Musicians Club at the Navy Club was packed full as well. No wonder with well known Freo musos Lucky Oceans, Bill Rogers, Jim and Tom Fisher, David Hyam and Dom Mariana, supporting young acts like Billie Rogers, Blue Lucy, Rachel and Heather Climb a Hill, and One Thousand Years.

In the crowd I noticed Mayor Brad Pettitt and councilor Andrew Sullivan and many other familiar Freo faces.

For me Hidden Treasures rates on the same level as the Cappuccino Strip Street Club and should become a regular event in Fremantle. It must be a great financial boost for the clubs to have so many visitors and it does the struggling West End a world of good to have something so vibrant and positive happening.

Well done to all those at the City of Fremantle who organised and supported this! Fremantle is not at all on its last legs, as some around town claim. Bring on more!!
