My Spring Fling

By Evie Lavers - October 24, 2012

I am in mad love with this city. Its that spring fling which starts at this time every year and by mid December I’m in a whirlwind of lust and desire for more culture, music and design that she, The City of Perth, offers to me.

Over the next week there are some BIG things happening for me. Saturday night Ambar will host Challenger Ready: Dress-Up Halloween Party. What makes is uber exciting is that dress-ups/costume regulations at the club are normally kept pretty tight but come Saturday its on! We are encouraging all our 12 performing DJ’s, bar staff, door girls, videographers, photographers and all our patrons to get freakishly festive and come fancy dressed for the night! There will be devilish drinks, decorations, prizes, candy and midgets. Midgets have be invited but attendance has not yet been confirmed.

(The Black keys will headline Rock It this Sunday)

I think Rock It was the first every festival I ever attended. I would have been 16. For those who don’t know - Rock It is a totally local, independent, great value, big production, single stage event with a short, hot bill; old school style. No fuss - just incredible music and every effort to keep it comfortable, simple, friendly and affordable. This years headlining act is The Black Keys along with John Butler Trio, 
Birds Of Tokyo, 
The Panics, 
Lanie Lane, 
Last Dinosaurs, 
San Cisco, 
Abbe May, 
The Kill Devil Hills, 
Emperors plus a handful more. Mandy Matlekjak and myself will be headed to the event, this Sunday with a creative concept in mind. WATCH.THIS.SPACE. We both hope to see you there!

(Omar Musa - Australian Poetry Slam Champion)

Tuesday night at The Bakery, Poetry Slam Australia will hold the WA State finals. A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work. Previously selected members of the audience then judge these performances on a numeric scale. It’s only $2 entry loads of fun, you may even get chosen to be a judge! Tuesday night, being the finals, I am expecting some extraordinary talent. For two bucks on a weeknight, how can you really go wrong?

(Highlights from Perth Festival 2012)

Over the next month Perth Festival 2013 Program will be released and The Beaufort Street Festival will host one of the most talked about days of the year. I will post more on both these events in the coming weeks. Over and out xxx
