Yagan Square Beats & Bites Week 4
Ticket Prices: FREE
WAM has started programming entertainment every Wednesday evening over six weeks to celebrate the opening of Yagan Square and present Beats & Bites. Get along to the Yagan Square Amphitheater every Wednesday during March and early April from 5pm-9pm and catch some great bands and beats while you eat your bites!
Performing this week are JAMILLA, Telete and DJ Lindsay Slohand.
The Yagan Square precinct boasts a Market Hall of international cuisine and local produce, digital tower and canopy, amphitheatre, children’s playscape and a new inner city mall connecting William Street from the CBD to Northbridge. The precinct design reflects Aboriginal stories and the unique Western Australian landscape. In collaboration with the Whadjuk Working Party, the project team has created a unique destination that will strengthen the local and international understanding of Aboriginal culture.
WEEK 4 – Wednesday March 28
DJ – Lindsay Slohand
Jamilla combines haunting soul vocals, self produced r&b beats and chillwave synths to create a beautiful kind of chill/electronic soul. With an intense stage presence and lyrics heavily connected to emotion, Jamilla expresses her appreciation for human vulnerability and invites you to experience hers.
Telete use synths and strings and bad keyboard-generated percussion to make slightly wonky pop music. As desribed by the band themselves “if dream pop and chamber pop had a very ugly baby, that would resemble the bands sound”.
DJ – Lindsay Slohand
All DJ’s performing at Yagan Square are members of WOMPP (Women of Music Production Perth). WOMPP is a platform for female, transgender and non-binary music makers to share and discuss music production.
