TREASURES COME OUT OF HIDING
MUSIC SOME of the biggest names in local music will bring action back to Fremantle’s best underused venues in next month’s Hidden Treasures winter music festival.
It doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, the inside of the Buffalo Club, Navy Club, National Hotel and PS Art Space will heat up as some of the best local bands and solo artists hit the stage every Thursday night in July.
As well as traditional sets from acts such as Custom Royal, Hideous Sun Demon, Methyl Ethyl and Shameem Taheri-Lee, PS Art Space will bring a different kind of music appreciation after assembling five distinct and progressive programs, each looking into different themes such as hip-hop, psych-rock and tribal techno. Also new on the bill for 2015 is the Irish Music Jam Session at the National Hotel.
Held every week during the festival, musician David Hyams said an Irish music session was usually an informal gathering of musicians who came together to play some tradition Irish music.
“At least six players will turn up each night and play around a table in an informal style, and it’s likely there will be others who join in,” he said.
“It’s not really a show so much, but about the atmosphere . . . and it’s a great way to warm up for the other events the festival will be offering each Thursday.”
