Event to bring good mu­sic, food, drinks

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Ali­cia Per­era

An in­no­va­tive new “pop-up” event cen­tred on good mu­sic, food and drinks is com­ing to a Tom Price restau­rant this Satur­day, June 4.

Pil­bara Pop Up will launch at 2pm and go un­til late, in the out­door area be­hind Thai restau­rant Red Breeze.

DJ Gareth Richard­son, who has 16 years ex­pe­ri­ence and per­formed at the re­cent Kar­i­jini Ex­pe­ri­ence, will pro­vide the en­ter­tain­ment. Red Breeze will of­fer a tai­lored bar menu and event or­gan­iser David Eger­ton will sup­ply a com­ple­men­tary wine list.

Mr Eger­ton, who has a back­ground in event man­age­ment, said Pil­bara Pop Up was a chance for res­i­dents to en­joy a “very re­laxed, very chilled out” at­mos­phere and ex­pand their mu­si­cal hori­zons.

“I just think there’s def­i­nitely a niche for some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent on of­fer here,” he said.

“Gareth has the knowl­edge to ed­u­cate peo­ple in mu­sic they wouldn’t oth­er­wise be able to lis­ten to in Tom Price.

“I think it’s just a new place to go and for me it’s purely about pro­vid­ing some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent the town can utilise.”

Mr Eger­ton said the event was de­signed to en­hance the ex­ist­ing area be­hind Red Breeze by adding a fun, low-cost twist.

“The pop-up ele­ment comes from al­ready hav­ing a space that’s es­tab­lished, but may not be be­ing utilised in that same ca­pac­ity, and pop­ping some­thing up based on some­thing lo­cal you have around you and the peo­ple you have around,” he said.

“A lot of (the fur­ni­ture) is re­cy­cled stuff that I’ve picked up around town — they’ll be couches, oil drums, pal­lets. I’ve been find­ing it over the last few months on the buy­ing and sell­ing pages.”

Pil­bara Pop Up is free to at­tend.
