In November some great local gigs are happening at my trusty favourite haunts. Do you like your Rock ‘n’ Roll? I’ve got you covered. How but something a little more refined? There’s a gig for you too. Maybe like me you just want to shake it out and have some fun whilst downing a boozy milkshake at the same time? You are in luck!

Scatterback - Emu System, MATA & Interflow

The Sewing Room | Thursday, 5 November | Find out more

What can you get for ten bucks these days? Not a whole lot but for half that The Sewing Room and Scatterback are giving you an offer you can’t refuse with a night of Rock ‘n’ Roll featuring four very different Perth bands. Aside from Scatterback who have impressed lately with their harder-edged Arctic Monkeys vibe, the night will also feature Interflow who hark back to classic 70s hard rock with their embrace of unapologetic monster guitar riffs. Psych-punk-rock MATA (Mirrors At The Arcade) will get you moving and Emu System who only recently debuted their self-titled EP round out the night. Honestly, they should slap a “Deal of the week” sticker on this because you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better event featuring Perth’s up-and-comers.
