EVENT GUIDE TOP 5 Dylan, birthdays and a final show

From gigs to workshops to theatre, the guide is full of an array of shows this week. They are just a selection from our chock-a-block Event Guide which we’re always updating and improving. If you’d like your event included, send us an email at

1. Spinning A Yarn songwriting night

The Sewing Room‘s fortnightly ‘storytelling song panel’ returns tonight, this time featuring Brendan Gaspari, Bethan Jakob, Dave Sonntag and Mark McGlue. Artists will take it in turns to play their songs, walking through the story behind each. Such a unique event paired with these exceptional artists is one not to let slide.

2. The Devil Rides Out farewell show

After 12 years of “big beards and bigger riffs, damaged ears and spilt beers” (in their own words), The Devil Rides Out are calling it a day at the Rosemount this Friday night. Original drummer Royce Uyen will be back for the night along with special guests, for one more chance to rock out with your horns out.

3. Badlands’ 2nd Birthday

It’s hard to believe that two years ago Badlands was just starting up; in such a short period of time it has made its name as a staple venue for local bands and touring acts alike. It celebrates its second birthday on Saturday night with Boat Show, Pat Chow, Flossy, Segue and Physical Release.

4. Bob Dylan

If any artist can lay claim to being the greatest living songwriter ever, it’d have to be the icon that is Bob Dylan. Returning to Perth Arena next Wednesday, though his voice and style has changed over the years, the fervour surrounding his name definitely has not. At 77, it’s hard to know if he’ll ever make the trek back this way again, so snatch up some last minute tickets while you can.

5. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The National Theatre of Great Britain is bringing their production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to His Majesty’s Theatre for an 11 show run this month. Beginning next Wednesday at 8pm and running each evening (except the 13th) thereafter, hear the mysterious story of Christopher Boone and see for yourself why its critical acclaim is not to be scoffed at.
