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.”

Hid­den Trea­sures is on ev­ery Thurs­day night in July. Visit www. fre­
