Easter Saturday at The Loft

It seemed like the whole of WA came to Fremantle for the Easter weekend and the Street Arts Festival. They split the CAT bus route in two, one service north and once south, so the whole town was pedestrianised and it worked really well. I headed to the Loft for the Little Creatures festival party on Saturday night. The best of the street performers where there showcasing their talents on the little stage.

On a side note these past few months the Loft has been really dead and somewhat lacking. Quite a few changes have been made over the past six months most significantly the management saw fit to change the license. I think it was combined with next door (Little Creatures) so all the spirits have gone and food has been introduced. I found this quite odd as just a month or so before this their cocktail menu was redone and I think they had some of the best cocktails in Perth and a good bar tender: a Canadian guy I can’t remember his name. No now it’s just wine, beer and aperitif style drinks like Pimms and Disaronno.

Anyway this particular Saturday night the Loft was busy again and it’s a good venue when it’s full and lively. 
I’m sorry I don’t have any photos but I was having a bag free night and had nowhere to put my camera.

The Esplanade smelled great last weekend there was a mini festival in the park with Indian and Sri Lankan food everywhere. I arrived late, but just in time for a quick snack before everything was packed up.

Space Invader Invades Fremantle

The boat show was on last Sunday and I was ambling around down Henry Street with my parents. I noticed this for the first time, just past the Moore & Moore Gallery/Café.

It’s a pixelated ceramic mosaic of a space invader about one story up from the ground. It a French artist’s work called “Invader’. He anonymously pastes up characters from the 80’s Space Invaders game made from small ceramic tiles that form a mosaic. He does all around the world and brands it an “Invasion”, with maps of where to find each invasion.
