If you managed to score an extra long weekend thanks to the Australia Day public holiday, we reckon this week might be pretty tough. But don’t worry your pretty little heads, we’ve got plenty of things to do that will ease the pain of the standard five-day work week.
Here are 5 awesome things to do in Perth this week.
Monday 30 January
Old School RnB Dance Party At De Parel Spiegeltent
If you want to get your week off to a good start, this is where you need to be. There will be old school tunes—think Stevie Wonder, MJ and Prince—as well as new beats and some freestyle rap. We’re willing to bet you’ll hear a bit of Queen Bey, JT, Snoop Dogg and more. All performed by Adam Hall and the Soul Playboys, you’ll be up and dancing before you know it. Buy tickets here.
Cult Classics Quiz Night At The Old Laundry
If a dance party sounds a little overwhelming for a Monday night, you might prefer to go and get a little competitive at The Old Laundry. Tonight’s quiz is all about cult classics so if you know your Spielberg from your Scorsese, head down there and show ‘em what you’ve got. Find out all the deets here.
Tuesday 31 January To Saturday 4 February
The Wine Bluffs At Noodle Palace
Answering the important questions like why the ‘champagne spider’ hasn’t caught on and which wine goes best with fairy bread (it’s got to be rosé right?), Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja are here to teach you all about wine—the most useless facts about it anyway. While you might not learn anything useful, you’ll have a good laugh. Now, someone make me a champagne spider, stat. Get your tix here!
Wednesday 1 February
Summers Jazz Soiree At Lamont’s Bishops House
Live jazz at Lamont’s Bishops House, that’s enough to convince us to head down there on Wednesday. If you need more, you’ll get a glass of bubbles on arrival and then spend the evening listening to Catherine Summers and her four-piece jazz band wow you with songs from Anita O’Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall and many more! Get your tickets here.
Thursday 2 February
A Day On The Green At Kings Park
A balmy night at the Botanic Gardens in Kings Park is always a good idea, but when Simple Minds (you know that song, Don’t You Forget About Me?) and the B-52s are playing, it’s a no-brainer. Snap up your tickets quick smart and settle in for a night of old-school tunes.
