EVENT GUIDE TOP 5 Pride, Bloc Party, Stella’s new band & more

As we gear up for the holiday season, schedules are filling up by the minute. We’re making it that little bit harder for you by offering up some quality suggestions for entertainment in Perth this week. Many of these events came in through our email, where we’re always looking for your ideas of what should go in our Event Guide. Shoot through a message if there’s anything you’d like to see in there in the coming weeks or months.

1. Pridefest 2018 Parade & After Party

The Court is kicking on following the Pride parade on Saturday night, opening up Beaufort Street for a late-night celebration of music, drag, drinks and fun. This massive undertaking is bound to be a hit; get your tickets now before they’re gone.

2. Bloc Party

Taking over Red Hill Auditorium with their timeless debut album Silent Alarm in tow, Bloc Party are set to show Perth why they have been one of the biggest British indie names in the past (almost) twenty years. Supporting them will be Haiku Hands.
