Carus is com­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

FRE­MAN­TLE’S favourite son Carus Thomp­son is com­ing home af­ter 14 years in Mel­bourne and will be per­form­ing at Mo­jos Bar on July 4 to cel­e­brate.

Mo­jos holds fond mem­o­ries for Thomp­son, who was one of the first per­form­ers when the venue opened.

“Mo­jos just had an in­flu­ence on my world through my 20s; I played so many gigs there, but I also saw a lot of amaz­ing gigs,” he said.

“It’s a spe­cial venue for me, as it’s in my home sub­urb of North Fre­man­tle, stum­bling dis­tance from the house where I grew up and where my fam­ily still live.”

Bring­ing his full band and a set full of songs from six dif­fer­ent al­bums, Thomp­son said he felt like he had al­most come full cir­cle since the first time he stepped on that Mo­jos stage.

His nos­tal­gia at be­ing home has in­spired a raft of new mu­sic, so much so that the singer said he was pre­pared for a new al­bum once he re­turned from play­ing shows in Lon­don and Ger­many. Visit
