MATHAS AND FEELS AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, culture, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 26, 2017

Winter is approaching and that means the Sunday concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre will stop soon, but today it is still on with MATHAS and his intricate lyrics and beats.

He will be joined by the new percussion-electro duo FEELS, so it should be a delightful afternoon in the lovely courtyard.

The cafe, pizza bar and drinks bar are open and so are the galleries.

LUCY PEACH AT FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, culture, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 19, 2017

It’s going to be a very pleasant 26 degrees this Sunday so a perfect day to head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre and enjoy the free courtyard music from 2-4 pm by Lucy Peach.

Fresh from winning the WAM Award for Best Folk Act 2016, Lucy will stun you with her epic vocals and evocative songwriting, weaving bitterly sweet tales of wayward love.

The pizza bar, cafe and bar will be open and of course there are exhibitions on, and the craft and gift shop is open.

See you there!

FORMER KULCHA SPACE TO BE REACTIVATED

Posted in city of fremantle, culture, hospitality, music by freoview on March 6, 2017

It looks like the former Kulcha space above the Dome cafe on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip will be activated again soon as a bar/restaurant and music venue.

To be able for Mitchelstown PtyLtd, the preferred tenderer after an Expression of Interest period in March last year, to make the interior changes to the building, such as a commercial kitchen and sound proofing, the City of Fremantle will make required changes and invest in making the venue accessible for disabled people and build a lift and new stairs in Collie Street as well as a universal toilet.

It is a lovely space above the Dome and I fondly remember the many performances and exhibitions and the free Saturday concerts on the balcony, so let’s hope the activation and new entertainment venue will be supported by Fremantle residents.

Toby at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 today

 

It’s going to be a delightful 34 degrees this long weekend Sunday so no excuse whatsoever to stay at home.

There is plenty to do in beautiful Fremantle and tough decisions will have to be made.

The Growers Green Farmers Market is on from 8-12, not far from there the Men’s Shed has Open Day and a tools auction and from 10-11 there is the Bridge Walk Roe 8 protest.

Two great concerts this afternoon. The free Fremantle Arts Centre concert with the powerful Toby at 2 pm and at 3 pm sublime Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman plays with the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra at the Townhall.

SAX IN THE WHALERS TUNNEL

Posted in arthur head, fremantle, heritage, music by freoview on February 27, 2017

sax

 

The beautiful sound of a saxophone came out of the Fremantle historic Whalers Tunnel this morning and what soul touching and melancholic music it is.

I wonder if the saxophonist is the same man who sometimes plays in the Fremantle Port underpass at Peter Hughes Drive.

Posted in community, concerts, fremantle, music by freoview on February 18, 2017

It was just yummy crisp when I got up early this morning and we are in for another a great weekend in Freo.

Just a reminder that Davey Craddock and The Pinnacles will be performing at the  Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday Music session from 2-4 pm.

Hear stories of sleepy coastlines, chaotic boom towns and the people caught in-between as Davey Craddock & The Spectacles (WA) bring their folk rock, alt-country sounds to FAC.

Cafe, bar and pizza bar are open!

There is also a free 6-9 pm free concert up on the deck of the Maritime Museum, but I have no details on who is playing.

Come enjoy Freo. It’s the best place to be on weekends!
