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

One of the best parts of going out to local gigs is the Pub Grub, so be sure to scope 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. It’s a great way to enjoy a Parmi on a weekday night. Some other great options for quality gigs with good vibes are The Rosemount and Mojo’s Bar.

After releasing three great albums in three years and circumnavigating the world five times to perform those records, Babe Rainbow took a creative pause at the end of 2019 in the Topanga Canyon haven of OC born record producer Kyle Mullarky who had almost single-handedly fashioned the West Coast psyche rock sound with Allah-lahs, Tomorrows Tulips, The Growlers. 

The band arrived back in Australia with a bunch of new inspirations from those sessions before mother natured flexed her muscle and all the world took a moment. 

In the Babe Rainbow camp the arrival of baby Rainbows Dorothy, Jilli May and Sandy added to their creative inspiration and soon the band returned to the familiar surrounds of the Music Farm with producer Wayne Connolly. With time no longer rushed, the band were able to shape those earlier ideas into a new album, more realised lyrically and stylistically than anything they have done prior.
