January. You blink, you miss it. Slow things down this week so as not to let 2019 gear up and slip away too easily. We’re thinking food markets, a bit of live music for the soul, and perhaps a fancy dinner at one of Perth’s favourite spots.
Enjoyment and simplicity are the calling cards of the week ahead. Make the most of it. Here are five awesome things to do this week in Perth.
Monday 14 January
Inglewood Night Markets
No cook Mondays are officially a thing thanks to the Inglewood Night Markets, and we suspect there’s probably a stronger-than-usual reluctance to cook on this particular Monday since we’re still getting into the swing of 2019. Let the plethora of food trucks on offer here take care of you instead. The only hard part will be deciding what to eat.
Tuesday 15 January
Calexico: Very Soon At The Rosemount
It’s been a while since our shores were graced with the presence of Calexico’s lyrical genius, but you can catch them this week as they bring the spirit of their latest album, The Thread That Keeps Us, to Aussie audiences with this show. If you’re unfamiliar it’s still worth getting down. Expect a blend of cumbia, surf rock and a hauntingly beautiful ‘desert noir’ sound. It’s Clint Eastwood meets The Beach Boys.
Wednesday 16 January
Pub Choir At Clancy’s Fish Pub
After all these years of providing some of the best live music entertainment in town, it’s finally our turn to grace the stage and perform at Clancy’s with this instalment of Pub Choir. Don’t worry, the beer will be plentiful to loosen up the vocal cords and let down the guard slightly.
Thursday 17 January
Strange Tables At Strange Company
It might be a new year but it’s all the same brilliance over at Strange Company. Enjoy another chapter of Strange Tastes this week, where the emphasis is all on seafood and riesling. Season and mood appropriate if we’ve ever seen it, enjoy a four-course menu from the Strange kitchen with paired wines. Be sure to book your spot, they’re limited.
Scarborough Sunset Markets At Scarborough Amphitheatre
Any week bookended by two lavish food markets is ok by us. Treat yourself to a Thursday night feast at the Scarborough Sunset Markets, where the carefree summer festival vibe is complete with live music, a thirst-quenching bar and sunset views, not to mention an abundance of delicious food to enjoy.
