SPACEY Jane will be hit­ting the stage at Fre­man­tle’s At First Sight Fes­ti­val.

The mini fes­ti­val will take place at Me­trop­o­lis Fre­man­tle and the New­port Ho­tel on the WA Day long week­end, with head­lin­ers to in­clude Ball Park Mu­sic, Alice Ivy, Tia Gostelow and Mos­quito Coast.

Spacey Jane singer­gui­tarist Caleb Harper said they were stoked to be per­form­ing.

“We love be­ing in Freo and I hope the show goes off,” he said.

“We are try­ing to do the smart thing with how many shows we are play­ing.

“We are for­tu­nate we get to play in Freo once ev­ery cou­ple of months; the sup­port here is re­ally con­sis­tent and has con­tin­ued for us in that area.”

Harper said peo­ple could ex­pect a no-frills ap­proach to their set.

“We are go­ing to fo­cus on what we can do, play a re­ally high-en­ergy, en­gag­ing set with the crowd through all the clas­sics we have,” he said.

“We aim to cre­ate a re­ally safe and in­clu­sive en­vi­ron­ment for our crowds; you can ex­pect us to touch on that and re­ally look out for the wel­fare of ev­ery­one in the crowd as much as we can.

“We are try­ing to make it the most en­gag­ing and hon­est mu­sic that we can. We are all pretty young our­selves and all peo­ple our age can re­late to that type of en­ergy and vibe.”

Harper said the band would be in the stu­dio in the com­ing weeks.

“We hope to have a new sin­gle out in a cou­ple of months,” he said.

“We are work­ing to­wards an al­bum for the end of the year.” OR­ANGE was the colour of choice on Wed­nes­day as Aus­tralia thanked its State Emer­gency Ser­vices vol­un­teers for all of their hard work.

May 22 was Wear Or­ange Wed­nes­day, an an­nual day of recog­ni­tion for SES vol­un­teers.

Among those cel­e­brated was City of Cock­burn cus­tomer ser­vice of­fi­cer Alex Cori­naldesi, who vol­un­teers with both the Cock­burn SES (CSES) and South Coogee Vol­un­teer Bush Fire Bri­gade (SCVBFB).

He said he some­times had to take time off work to at­tend emer­gen­cies.

“I am the sec­tion leader for lo­gis­tics with the CSES and was the com­mu­nity en­gage­ment of­fi­cer for the SCVBFB and only re­cently stepped down,” he said.

“I am able to leave work when re­quired to go to call-outs, in­clud­ing missing per­son searches or to help with storm dam­age, and de­ploy­ment to ma­jor storm and fire events. If work­places don’t sup­port em­ploy­ees vol­un­teer­ing for emer­gency ser­vice re­sponse groups, then the ca­pa­bil­ity of those re­sponse teams is re­duced.

“I like help­ing oth­ers and both the SES and bush fire bri­gade is like hav­ing another fam­ily.”
