Grievous Bodily Calm - 'Repel' Record Launch

Can't make it to Freo this weekend? Fear not, for local beat music five piece Grievous Bodily Calm will be live and in effect north of the river on Saturday night for a very special performance at the Bird.

The occasion is the launch of their new record 'Repel' and the theme is 'be there or live to regret it'. The lovely and legendary dulcet tones of Amber Fresh / Rabbit Island will be warming the cockles of your heart and the stage beforehand - well worth getting there early for.

March 30 from, 8pm
The William Street Bird


READ: The Secrets of the World's Greatest Art Thief .

A lovely bit of long form, light-reading from Michael Finkel that is infinitely more arresting than that incredibly frustrating art-heist movie of yesteryear

Lucas Cranach the Younger, Sibylle of Cleves (c. 1530)

It's an article, read it online here.

Wise Child Wine Store x Si Vintners.

Fun wine by nice people, sans additives or pretense.
Fremantle's Wise Child Wine Store team up with one of Margaret River's favourite exports of the last decade for another collaborative drop with a spicy label.
Get down to the launch next week, or rush in this weekend to catch the last few days of the Mabon exhibition currently on show in their newly renovated cellar space. (Featuring new works from Tom Freeman, Jae Criddle, Jacob Smith and Rosie Vinicombe).

April 5, from 4pm
Wise Child Wine Store.

Conversations at Mild Doogs

Conversations: Feminism and Pop Culture.

Pop culture makes up a huge part of who we are - the guilty pleasures, the sing-a-longs, the “most quoted”. It binds us together. What happens when we look at the messages in stories, songs, movies and tv shows that we have known and loved? 

From Ja Rule to Grand Theft Auto, Disney to Game of Thrones, Dawson’s Creek to Girls, we explore misogyny in pop culture and the impact of its consumption.

For those of you attending Camp Doogs next weekend, you would be well advised to make it down to Conversations - an incredible new feminist space for us to reflect on the vast and varied female experience.

Encouraging guests and hosts alike to think about the patriarchal systems that impact all people ~ through deep reflection, critical thought, and provocative conversation.

Everyone is welcome.

April 5, from 5pm
Mild Doogs at Camp Doogs.
