Every Thursday evening in July, the 2015 Hidden Treasures winter music series returns to warm up live music hotspots in Fremantle’s historic West End.
Now in its fifth year, the City of Fremantle-run series celebrates Fremantle’s vibrant musical culture with four venues – PS Art Space, The Navy Club, The Buffalo Club and The National Hotel – playing host to some of the port city’s most talented musicians.
A $15 ticket will get you a night’s entry to all four venues, which will host staggered performances that allow music lovers to enjoy a variety of performances.
The Navy Club features a special reformation show by indie rock band, the Rosemary Beads, world renowned indigenous artist, Phil Walley-Stack and rock royalty, James Baker and Rodney Radalj performing in the James Baker Experience. Mick Thomas of Weddings, Parties, Anything will also be teaming up with Squeezebox Wal for a very special show.
From funk to rock, the Buffalo Club will be home to performances by Mooj – one of Fremantle’s newest funk bands, Kitchen People – a four piece garage band and Yaqui Yeti – a mixture of blues rock with folk inspired vocals.
Combining art with music, ranging from hip-hop, psych-rock, through to tribal techno, PS Art Space will showcase five curated programs. Shows include Press Play, a showcase of world class beat culture and Aunty Topia, an alliance of cutting edge producers using raw rhythms.
Irish Jam – live musician sessions – will be held upstairs at the National Hotel. The sessions will be led by a core group of musicians and aspiring musicians are invited to bring along their instruments and join in the jam. Contemporary and traditional folk musicians will then take over the stage and provide entertainment until midnight.
