WA Beer Week is a great annual celebration of all things beer in the state. And no other event will showcase this as well as Beer Through The Ages, which will see brewers from different decades and backgrounds pitted against each other in a blind taste test competition in the name of all things good. Hosted by Five Bar in Mt Lawley on the 29th of October, think of it as the greatest Wednesday night you could have.
The event sees Mash Brewing Co., The Monk Brewery and Kitchen, and Colonial Brewing collaborating and throwing in their own group of brewers for ultimate glory. The Young brewers thrown into the ring from Monk, will be competing with the over-30s from Mash and the Legends from Colonial Brewing including none other than Roger Bussel (ever drunk that delicious Rogers eh?), Hugh Dunn and Barry Sextone.
Those in attendance will be sampling each of the three beers on offer, and scoring each one from 1-5, the scores will be tallied, the champion will be crowned, and you will all have a splendid night! Each beer will be backed up with a story from its creators after you've scored, spilling what their inspiration was and what they attempted to do.
Tickets are available here, for $20, but get in quick friends, they're selling fast.
In Transformers: The Last Knight, the freak show has been toned down; there's precious little human bile forced down your throat this go around. Heck, there's even some attempts at respectability. Which is boring and nullifies the series' proudly nihilistic juvenile identity.
With a fervent belief that true commitment to bad-taste transforms it into something fashionable, fun and infectious, Kirin is a lot to take in.
Slowdive know how to play to their strengths, pulling from the best moments of their discography to present us with something that is at once familiar and refreshing.
I couldn’t think of anything more terrifying than playing a delicate set of acoustic jazzy music to room full of mostly black overcoat-clad, chin stroking, forty-something, ultra-discerning listeners. But for The Necks, that is the thesis for their completely improvised performances.
The Exes share a deep passion for vocal harmonies and heartbreakingly good songwriting. This killer combination has crystallised itself on their new album When We Fall. We caught up with the Exes ahead of their two gigs at Babushka and Fly By Night this weekend.
We caught up with Sydney singer-songwriter Montaigne to chat about making positive change, video games, life, death, and spirituality. Have a read, then do yourself a favour and purchase tickets for her performance at Capitol on the 29th of July.
From humble beginnings to a hefty, sold-out national tour, Winston Surfshirt has certainly transcended the mediocrities of the urban music scene and reminded us all what a little funk and R&B can do for the soul.
So, it's awful.
Will Wagner and the Smithies appeared every part bonafide rockstars on Friday night, with plenty of good songs and good vibes.
Black Swan State Theatre Company’s exciting run (and WA premiere) of beloved American-Australian playwright Lally Katz’s work The Eisteddfod is just around the corner, opening at the end of this month and directed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler. We took the opportunity to have a chat the genius behind the script herself about growing older, writing, the play and WA.
