Scarborough Sunset Markets - Summer Series

Now in its third season, The Scarborough Beach Association (SBA) and KINN & Co are delighted to announce the return of the ever popular Scarborough Sunset Markets.

  • Dates:Every Thursday, Oct 31 - Apr 30
  • Time(s):5-9pm
  • Venue:Scarborough Beach

Details

  • Venue Address:Scarborough Beach
  • Ticket Price:Free
  • Type:Summer Markets
  • Audience:Family-Friendly
  • Food & Drink:Food Market Events

Description

Kicking off Thursday October 31 and spanning from the purpose built Scarborough Square down to the crisp white sands of the Amphitheatre, each week the beachfront will once again ignite into a celebration of all that makes this location truly special - mesmerising sunsets, crystal blue ocean, crisp white sands, a foodies’ oasis, thirst quenching bevies, live music, creative artists and curated pop up stores- while encouraging locals, families and visitors to continue rediscovering Scarborough.

Last year’s season saw record crowds of locals and visitors descend on Scarborough each week to spend summer nights on Scarborough Beach with their toes in the sand as they wander through a global market of culinary delights and sensory surprises.

This year promises to be filled with even more mouthwatering food, stunning retail, chilled tunes, arts and engaging entertainment, while we also launch a WAR ON WASTE!

Our WAR ON WASTE aims to;
• reduce waste at the markets;
• introduce reusable containers;
• recycle organic & compostable waste; and
• minimise disposal into landfill

The main sources of waste at the markets are food and plastic plates, cutlery and bottles. Therefore, to ensure we deliver on our vision for a greener market the below strategies are being introduced;

• Patron’s encouraged to BYO plates, cutlery, cups
• Market Eat Kits – we are selling reusable eating kits for patrons including plates and utensils.
• Waste Stations around the markets, at which visitors place waste on a table and our War on Waste Warriors sort through it and dispose of it in the correct bin – reducing contamination and incorrect bin usage.

  • Visual Arts:Historical,Painting,Photography

Description

Surrealism was a worldwide phenomenon when Heathcote opened in 1929 and I’ve always been interested in the connection between Surrealism and concepts of madness. When asked to make new work about the Heathcote Mental Health Reception Centre I took the opportunity to explore some of the strategies used by the Surrealists: collective ventures, poetry and the use of found objects in artworks.

As I read stories from past staff and patients, and listened to Oral Histories that have been collected - I allowed the ones that resonated to come forward. These stories had something of the surreal about them, a startling relationship with a material (feathers, hair, bone), the erotic, or the unconscious. They suddenly made me identify with the patient or the staff member- to be in their body, to inhabit madness, and to work in a place that both contained and maintained madness.

With thanks to Kaylene Poon, the City of Melville History Centre staff and the many participants who contributed to this project.

Press Club 'Wasted Energy' Tour

Melbourne group, PRESS CLUB release their second full-length album, Wasted Energy and head off around the country in November.

  • Dates:Dec 6
  • Time(s):Opens 7:00pm
  • Venue:Lucy's Love Shack

Details

  • Hosted By:Little Giant Agency
  • Venue Address:109 Murray St, Perth WA 6000
  • Ticket Price:$24
  • Type:Music
  • Audience:Adults
  • Music:Concert Tours,Gig Guide

Description

Press Club’s sonic calling cards are all present on Wasted Energy; the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the razor sharp guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, not to forget the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. 

Two singles have been taken from the self-produced Wasted Energy so far. ‘Get Better’, and ‘Thinking About You’, in which Foster recounts her experience with a stalker. Never one to shy away from what is uncomfortable, the song embodies a freak’s tongue, cooing unbridled down the phone line; abrupt, uninvited, and out of the blue.

Wasted Energy approaches the microphone through a lens of extrospection. It examines the negative behaviours in the world around us and how we’re all learning to exist in today’s ever-evolving socio-moral landscape. Wasted Energy is broadly about change, and life’s watershed moments that change its course. These shifts are laterally represented lyrically and sonically in many of its songs. Sweeping about-faces and musical departures are an expansion of the musical fibre that make up the Press Club repertoire. 

Wasted Energy follows on from acclaimed debut album, Late Teens, which thrust the group into life on the Australian and European touring circuits. Its reception to blame for their appearance at dozens of festivals around Australia (Falls, Yours + Owls, Fairgrounds, Festival of the Sun) and Europe (Groezrock, The Great Escape, Manchester Punk Festival, Stag + Dagger). The sold out first pressing of Late Teens was shifted rapidly thanks to a swathe of high-profile support slots (Japandroids, DZ Deathrays, Joyce Manor), radio play at the community and national level, and a bevy of media support both online and in print.

The massive Australian tour slated for later this year will see the band play shows in NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD, SA, TAS and WA after they return from their second assault on Europe and The U.K for 2019. The band descend on Reading and Leeds Festivals, Reeperbahn Festival and 25 of their own headline dates across England, Scotland, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Denmark. 

The enigmatic, Sydney quintet, Johnny Hunter – whom in their own right seem inexorably flung towards a crowd-wrenching career – join Press Club in what will be one of the most powerful tours of homegrown, showpersonship this year.

Description

Untitled (Uura) presents work made over a two-year period of exploration as he worked with new materials and processes of making, finding new forms through which to tell stories and record language. This period of practice marks a departure from his first medium of film and presents a series of carved sculptures and site-specific installations and paintings. Untitled (Uura) explores the artists self and how language, knowledge and persistent memories dwell within and re-surface across generations.

Producing stories in Martu Wangka dialect for his community and younger generations is fundamental to Taylor’s practice. He has a collective approach to filmmaking often working with collaborators and finding opportunities for younger generations and community members to build skills and discover their own practices and methods of storytelling. His films have been shown at The National 2019: New Australian Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney alongside collaborator Ishmael Marika, and The Sydney Film Festival 2019 with film making partner Nathan Mewett.

Curtis Taylor asserts narratives of cultural and personal identity, creating immersive spaces occupied by language and ritual that explore the edges of life and death.
