The Fly By Night to celebrate 30 years of live music
November marks three decades that the Fly By Night Musicians Club has been operating as an iconic music and arts establishment in Fremantle. The Fly will be celebrating in its new home of Victoria Hall with a jam- packed program featuring local, national and international talent.
The Fly by Night was established in 1986 by a group of musicians and music lovers with the objective of providing a venue for musicians, performers and community groups and to assist in the development of artists. Since opening it’s doors the Fly has held over 5,000 shows with more than half of these being local acts, offered a place to rehearse and develop for established local acts like San Cisco, Tame Impala, The Waifs, Eskimo Joe and seen countless iconic acts grace its stages.
The Fly’s 30th Anniversary celebrations show the diversity of acts that the club presents and highlights its importance in the local community. The gigs range from ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Russel Morris, to Goanna’s Shane Howard, to indigenous star Mary G’s Kimberley Showcase. In keeping with the Fly’s objectives, local acts will be prominently be showcased, including an album launch for Lucy Peach and weekly local events The Gaslight Club and Automatic Sound Series.
The club would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Fremantle and wider community for its support ensuring that the Fly remains a staple in the Freo culture.
