The band Pond, who are comprised of half members of Tame Impala, are in Fremantle this September to play a show at a great venue… Fremantle Prison. Pond have officially been found guilty… of making some of most killer tracks to have come out of the last few years.

In our lunch break we popped into PSAS for the brilliant SpaceFolding SoundPlastic exhibition, part of this year’s Totally Huge New Music Festival. Walking through a labyrinth of light and sound you wonder – Are they connected? What do they mean? The exhibition has been evolving over the past weeks, including two performances which involved volunteers and the artist being wrapped in plastic. Read more →
We went to the jazz night downstairs at the Odd Fellow last Thursday. We arrived early at 6:30 for a 7:00pm start so we propped ourselves up at the bar for a few drinks. By 7:30 we realised we were two and a half hours early for the show as it was stating at nine but that didn’t matter because we having such a great time. The bar staff at the Odd Fellow are really wonderful and by the time it was jazz o’clock we’d had quite a few cocktails and several cheese plates, damn that delicious triple brie.
Have you heard? The Hidden Sound.

I’ve entered loads of those competitions over the years and never won anything, so it was interesting to see what they’re like. We even got free coffee and Kit Kats… which is never a bad thing.
