ENTERTAINMENT & STYLE
Who knew? Tina Arena reckons she hasn’t made any cash after four decades in the
music industry, so she’s handballing the cost of this tour to, well, herself. Here’s hoping
RESET, the 2013 album that scored her a spot on News Limited’s ‘Top 20 Albums of the
Year’ list, will draw the crowds. #feedtina. Crown Perth, Aug 15.
BEST LIVE MUSIC VENUES IN PERTH
MOJOS | You can count on hearing live music seven days a week at this grungy Freo
bar, which plays host to little-known and international bands alike. Open mic night on
Mondays let you discover new talent, and we love the monthly fisherman nights’ reggae
beats – BYO dreads. North Fremantle.
Clancy’s | This line of low-key, pretension-free fish pubs has some of the most
toe-tapping music around. Plus, you won’t have to pay a babysitter – kids will
love the grassy stretches out back and yummy kids’ meals. Fremantle, City Beach,
The Rosemount | It mightn’t look like more than a regular pub, but the Rosemount
is in every Perth rockers’ little black book for its cutting-edge music acts, excellent PA
system, and outdoor courtyard with DJs. North Perth.
The Bakery | Not-for-profit Artrage runs this performance venue, and it’s something
of a favourite for the artsy folk of Perth for its alternative music, art exhibitions and cool
wall murals. Northbridge.
Capitol/Amplifier | Or Caps and Amps, as they’re known by regulars. More indie,
alternative bands play in the half-outdoor space at Amps (there’s always a throng of
bearded guys smoking out there), and a big stage and thumping beats at Caps cater
for those who like to party. CBD.
Fly by Night | The excellent acoustics of this joint have helped launch the careers of
major WA bands, like John Butler Trio and Tame Impala. Fremantle.
Astor Theatre | The old art deco theatre makes for a pretty nifty music venue, with
standing and seated areas, plus a second tier to look out from. Upstairs, the Astor
Lounge is a smaller, more intimate space. Mt Lawley.
The Bird | Hipsters gather from all over the city to see live music at this cool
establishment. Exposed bricks, low lighting and fires outside make it frosty-weather-
Ya Ya ’s | Part pub, part nightclub, this upbeat joint plays live music nearly every night
of the week. Northbridge.
Belvoir Amphitheatre | This alfresco theatre has a limestone stage and seated terraces.
We love feeling the grass beneath our feet as we dance. Swan Valley.
The Indi Bar | The proximity to Scarbs beach gives this venue a chilled-out, surfie vibe,
and it’s been blasting live music since the 80s. Scarborough.
Fremantle Arts Centre | It can be intimate, with small courtyard performances, and it
can be raging, with major acts and a huge grassy dancefloor. What’s consistent are the
thoughtfully chosen music acts and down-to-earth vibe. Fremantle.
The Odd Fellow | The Norfolk Hotel’s revamped Basement is cooler than ever, with
cave-like walls and an impressive wall of alcohol. Expect original, indie acts. Fremantle.
