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!
The annual BROOME TO BICTON concert with the famous Aboriginal Kimberley band Pigram Brothers is on again this Saturday February 18 from 4.30 pm.
It is at Quarantine Park just above the Bicton Bath on the Swan River.
Bring a picnic for this fun family events that will be held for the 15th time this year, so it has become a great tradition.
If rain does not stop the show the free Fremantle Arts Centre Sunday Music concert will be on from 2-4 pm again, so come and enjoy Telete and Demon Days
Since bursting onto the local music scene last year, Demon Days (WA) are turning heads with their sultry vocals and neo-soul beats. Catch their delicious blend of hip hop, soul, funk and jazz.
Telete, formerly known as Golden String, will open the show with their trademark dream pop.
From 6-9 there is also a free concert on the deck of the Maritime Museum, so don’t get bored staying at home. Life is too short to be bored!
It is going to be a pretty good Sunday before the rain comes back next week, so why not enjoy some free concerts in Fremantle today in some of the best locations in town.
From 2-4 pm Pugsley Buzzard from Victoria will perform at the Fremantle Arts Centre and delight you with his big voice, sassy horns, chunky piano and fascinating song writing. He has performed all over the planet from Berlin to New Orleans.
From 6-9 the Harbour Sunday concert is on at the deck of the Maritime Museum, a great spot to watch the sunset!
Bluegrass Parkway, Stoney Joe and DJ Justin Walshe will entertain you there, so that should make for a great end of a beautiful weekend.
The first of the FREE Harbour Sundays concerts at the Fremantle Maritime Museum starts today and will go on every Sunday from 6-9 pm until 26 February.
With local live music, DJs and panoramic views over the Indian Ocean, it’s the perfect way to finish your weekend.
Today The Durongs, The Floors and DJ Sarah Tout will provide the entertainment and the bar will be open.
Great views from the upstairs deck over Fremantle Port and the perfect location to watch the sunset.
It is a worry to read in the Sunday Times this morning that Fremantle Sunset Events director David Chitty has admitted his company does have financial problems and paying suppliers after a less than successful Southbound event.
Several companies claim Sunset Events owes them tens of thousands of dollars with one of them making strong personal attacks on Facebook.
The worry for Fremantle is what this will mean for the Jerome Laneway Festival, but more importantly what it will mean for the 25-year-lease Sunset Events has signed for the No 1 studio in J Shed at Bathers Beach.
Rumours are that the company still wants to go ahead with a scaled-down version of the tavern and music venue, after planning approval for it was refused by Fremantle Council, the WA Planning Commission and the State Administrative Tribunal.
Will Sunset Events be able to commit hundreds of thousands of dollars to build a tavern, toilets, commercial kitchen, etc?
Maybe it is time for City of Fremantle officers to pro-actively engage with the events organisers and find out if it would be better to move on and for them to relinquish the lease and for the City to find a more appropriate use for the historically significant location.
I am not sure what the weather is going to be like today as the rain did not arrive in Fremantle last night, so take the risk and head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre for the Sunday music session from 2-4 pm.
The Red Dirt Crew from the Norther Territory will perform hip hop, some in traditional language and about Dreamtime stories. This group comes from three remote communities, stretching 700 kilometres.
Also on this afternoon is our Freo songwriter folk singer Donna Simpson, so extend the One Day in Freo day into today and have some more fun!
The delightful Kavisha Mazzella will be playing down at Kidogo Arthouse at Bathers Beach on Sunday January 29 at 7pm with Fremantle musician David Pensa as support.
It is the launch of her CD The Fearless Note. This is a live CD that was recorded on a full moonlit night last September at Julian Burnside QC and artist wife Kate Durham’s place at his request as he wanted a bootleg style of a live performance.
The Sunday Music Sessions in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre are very popular. It is a great community event for young and old and the perfect spot for catching up with friends.
This afternoon from 2-4 pm The Dashleys will hook you in with their charismatic blend of rich pop harmonies, rhythm, blues and rock.
Opening the show is captivating indie-folk songstress Helen Shanahan.
This is a free event, the pizza oven will be on and the cafe and bar are open, so come along and bring some friends!
Don’t forget to head out to Clancy’s this Saturday from 4 pm for the fundraiser for musician Steve Gibson who has been diagnosed with cancer.
There is a fantastic line-up of local musos to support their mate at this family friendly event at Princess May Park.
Tickets are only $ 25,00 for a great balmy night out and help someone who deserves our support.
All proceeds are going to Steve Gibson and his young family.
