Uncovering what's great about Perth
More Perthy greatness...
Perth six-piece band Boys Boys Boys! launched their second LP, We Are Excited About Everything, at the Bakery on Friday night to a crowd that had clearly received the message about enthusiasm from the album’s title. Pitching the launch as a “party to end all parties, inspired by the first records you ever bought,” Boys […]
Seemingly now synonymous with the Perth summer, shark attacks have permeated Perth’s arts scene as well, with new play Great White was written in response to the five fatal attacks of last summer. Writer, director and star Will O’Mahony has carefully paralleled public perception of sharks with a story of loneliness and independence to create […]
Why did the Perth resident stay in on a Tuesday night? It sounds like the beginning of an (admittedly terrible) joke, but when the Winter Arts Season is on it’s a serious question to be asked – the days may be getting shorter, but there’s more to do than ever in Perth. Warming up your […]
American guitarist and composer Kaki King previewed her new album, Glow, at The Bakery on Saturday night to a crowd entranced. And for good reason – Kaki, hailed as a “guitar god” by Rolling Stone, commands full attention for both her complex, resonant music and her quirky, engaging audience patter.

That is, unless you’re planning on […]
In the not-too-distant past Northbridge was hardly a mecca for creative types. Before small bars and William Street’s hipster makeover, Northbridge was more of a rough, urban ghetto; Perth’s very own Law and Order scenescape. But since its recent cultural makeover – think the Bird, summer night markets and the hipster-friendly astro-turfed Rooftop Movies – […]
1. Mad Hatter and Village Art Markets The end of High Street formerly populated by a few discount stores and the shell of the Myer building has come alive again thanks to the Mat Hatter Markets. Located in the King’s Square precinct, the markets seek to keep alive Freo’s tradition of being a market town, […]
As the clock strikes 5pm at the end of a working day, exercise isn’t usually the first thing on my mind. Seriously, who wants to exert themselves anymore than they’ve had to all day?! Since I discovered Pure Moves, a boutique Pilates studio in Cottesloe, my whole mindset has shifted. And while my Victoria’s Secret […]
Could you live on $2 a day? That’s what the team behind charity campaign Live Below the Line is asking you to do. For five days between 6-10 May, eat on just $2 a day – the equivalent of the extreme poverty line – to raise awareness for the people who live in extreme poverty […]
