Local gigs are the best way to discover new talent and to support musicians and artists.

 

All year around music lovers flock to these events. An awesome way to start or end your night out bands often offer early or late shows in the Perth area and surrounds. Make sure to book online or arrive early as venues often have limited capacity.

The Aardvark, Badlands Bar and The Bird are particularly popular for their laidback vibes featuring beer gardens and much needed chill out zones. Located in Northbridge and Fremantle these venue staples are easily accessible by train and regularly host local legends such as Spacey Jane and Carla Geneve.

Carla Geneve

Part of going out is Pub Grub, be sure to check out your local bar for live events. The Indian Ocean Hotel known lovingly as The Indi hosts an impressive mix of established and upcoming artists. A great way to enjoy your Parma on a weekday night. Some other great options are The Rosemount and Mojo’s Bar.
