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.”
