August sees an absolute flood of local events, including the Yellow Dot Ball and the business awards, and it is golden to see that these events are well attended.
This month of activity makes me feel as if its time we drag ourselves out of our winter hibernation and begin preparations for another gorgeous Esperance summer.
Things are beginning to pick up pace for myself with a number of local gigs in development. You can expect a fantastic array of events to be held at the Cannery Arts Centre.
Tickets for Sweet Tuna are selling well. Sweet Tuna is a collaboration between Esperance Tide, Tradewinds, KyzaPresents and the Cannery Arts Centre.
The gig sees Ruby May return to Esperance on Friday August 25 supported by Cal, Rachel Vibart and A Simple Array.
Preparations are underway to ensure the event will be an absolute blast for those attending. Sweet Tuna will act as the gateway to spring, functioning as a springboard towards a fun filled summer for the local community.
Tickets are $35 plus booking fee and are available from www.esperancetide.com. This is an 18 plus event with a full bar running and tasty treats on offer.
Dj Sets at the Skate Park was a great event held over the past weekend, which saw a number of local crew head attend on August 6.
Chris Pope acted as the catalyst for the event approaching myself two months ago with the idea of having free dj sets at the skate park.
After passing the event with the shire we where able to go ahead, scoring perfect conditions for the sets.
Actions like this have such a positive benefit to the local community particularly for those who fall within the 10-17 year old age bracket. Chris and I are in discussion to create ongoing music at the Skate Park, so stay tuned.
Bust A Move will be held at Bonapartes bar on Saturday August 12 from 7pm. The gig sees Chris Pope return to the decks to spin all your favorite 70s-90s disco hits.
Organisers ask you to dress up as your favorite pop star or decade of music. Tickets are $20 and available from Inside Out. All proceeds to Andrew Fullers Resiliency for Youth, Esperance Workshops.
Axess Denied return to the stage after a brief hiatus. Cranking out there raucous brand of pub rock at the Esperance Motor Hotel on Saturday August 12 from 8.30pm.
