Fremantle City Library, Quality Comics and Chaos Pop present “Create Chaos”.

Create Chaos will see aspiring and emerging comic creators and artists from across the state exhibiting their work at the Fremantle Library on Saturday October 15. There will be over 30 stalls located inside and outside the library with free discussion panels, workshops and live demonstrations.

The pop culture craze is bigger than ever and as the popularity of comic books, video games and manga continues to rise. WA is overflowing with individuals creating their own original work, hoping to make a name for themselves and share their work with others.

From caped crusaders and hideous monsters to surreal fantasy and misanthropic meditations on life, you’ll be amazed at what the comic book medium is capable of and the quality of work produced by these home-grown talents.

Create Chaos seeks to support local creators, and engage them with the community and inspire others to begin their own creative and artistic journey.

1.00pm – 1.30pm: Question Time with Sarah Winifred Searle

RELAX AT FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE SUNDAY CONCERT

Posted in fremantle, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 20, 2016

 

There are not many of the free Sunday Music concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre left for the season so go and enjoy JODIE TESS and the PUPULAR FRONT today from 2-4 pm.

Enjoy the pop-rock with a distinct jazz influence by the WAM Award winner under the trees while sipping on a nice glass of wine from the bar. The cafe and pizza bar are also open, so no need to go hungry.

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!

SWITCH TO AUTOPILOT AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on March 9, 2014

If you don’t want to get caught up in traffic jams and lack of parking in the West of Fremantle, why not go East to the Fremantle Arts Centre today at 2 pm for the free courtyard music session. The garage pop group Autopilot is on today, and FAC says this is “late 20th century Perth power pop at its finest.”

There is plenty of parking at the closed Leisure Centre just over the road from FAC, so give it a try. It’s very relaxing!

LEAFY ART COURTYARD GREAT FOR MUSIC

Posted in art, fremantle, music by freoview on February 10, 2014

I intended to stay at the Fremantle Arts Centre for only half an hour on Sunday, but I enjoyed the music and atmosphere so much that I stayed on for the entire performance of Melbourne based The Tiger And Me.

The music was outstanding, and the hundreds who has come to listen to it thoroughly enjoyed the amazing pop music created by stunning vocals, bass, piano, strings and drums.

While relaxing there, I was wondering why we don’t have more of these small leafy outdoor venues that are so good for the soul, and that create such a cosy community environment. The Sunday Courtyard Music at the Arts Centre has become a tradition which people from all over Perth flock to. It’s great to sit in the grass under the trees, with a glass of wine, eat good food from the cafe and the pizza bar, and be surrounded by the historic walls of the former Lunatic Asylum. There is nothing mad about having a really good Sunday afternoon.

WOMEN OF SONG AT FREMANTLE KULCHA

Posted in fremantle by freoview on March 31, 2013

Check out what’s going on at the lovely Fremantle KULCHA this week:

Friday 5 April 8.30pm
WOMEN OF SONG
Four remarkable female artists in one unforgettable evening.

Ms. Paula is a New Zealand-born singer-songwriter who won hearts on Channel 9’s The Voice with her painfully beautiful melodies and her ability to sing with heart-felt integrity. Described as a soulful diva, she has a style filled with power, honesty and a flair for compelling storytelling.

Ulla Shay is an acclaimed Indigenous singer-songwriter. She received two awards in the TOO SOLID Music Awards: Female Artist of the Year and Overall Gold and Solid Artist. Ulla performed in the Crimea Music Fest world song contest (Ukraine) to an audience of 40 million people.

Shameem Taheri-Lee was born to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother. The diversity of her heritage has influenced her eclectic approach to music – a unique concoction of ’90s-esque R&B/soul, ’70s funk and a twist of jazz imbued with personal and conscious lyrics.

Tania Walker is a singer-songwriter originally from the Mekeo tribe of Papua New Guinea. She has performed nationally and internationally. Tania ‘s songs are a unique fusion of acoustic folk-pop-rock delivered with soul and mesmerizing presence

Saturday 6 April 8.30pm
THE SEALS
A boisterous blend of country blues and bluegrass

The Seals burst onto the music scene less than three years ago with a series of raucous and rollicking shows. The band gained a dedicated following playing their own blend of country blues and bluegrass. Gritty with raw emotion and occasionally lewd lyrics, mixed with sweet vocal harmonies and unusual instrumentation, The Seals ‘ Neo-Bluegrass style will have you coming back for more slapping your knee and tapping your toes.

FREO’S SAN CISCO ARIA NOMINATIONS

Posted in fremantle by freoview on October 4, 2012

Congratulations to Fremantle‘s young pop group SAN CISCO who received three nominations for the 26th ARIA Awards in Sydney. I remember photographing the high school teenagers a few years ago for the Fremantle Herald when they practiced in a room at the back of a house in a small South Freo street. Well done guys!
