EVENT GUIDE TOP 5 Wombats, Sam Smith and more…

The top 5 is back and whether you’re heading to Red Hill, RAC Arena or the Roadshow this week, the X-Press Event Guide contains all you need to know, from music to arts to film to almost everything else. Send us an email at if you’d like us to list your event, or simply know of something cool coming up.

1. Sam Smith

The British crooner and global megastar takes over our newly renamed RAC Arena next Wednesday with good friend Paloma Faith in tow.

2. The Wombats

Many a joke has been made recently of The Wombats‘ propensity for touring our nation, but we haven’t heard any complaints as of yet. Catch them tonight (Thursday) at the picturesque Red Hill Auditorium to make sure they continue their touring streak.

3. The Betoota Advocate Roadshow

You know ’em and love ’em for their highly relevant satire, but now the online paper has provided for the real die-hards and made the transition onto the stage. They’ll be at the Astor Theatre Friday evening for all your comedy needs.

4. The Uni Goonies Film Festival

The Uni Goonies Film Festival exhibits the ‘best of the best’ short films made by young people this year. Held at the State Library, tickets are a steal at $10/$15 and it all goes into supporting these up-and-coming filmmakers.

5. Local launches

This week in launches we have the ever-wonderful Pat Chow (pictured) launching their album at The BirdThe Reductors coming through with a double single launch at the Bassendean HotelThe Alexander’s Band’s album launch at The Bird and Streetlight Foxes offering up their latest EP at The Aardvark. Plenty of choices for plenty of tastes.
