Expat local, Rose Carleo, cut her teeth singing and playing guitar in Perth and Fremantle’s pubs and clubs as a teen, and she’s returning home this weekend with new husband, Mick Adkins, in tow for a series of shows as part of the Bonfest celebration of former AC/DC frontman, Bon Scott.
Carleo grew up in and around Fremantle, and always looks forward to returning to her old stomping grounds to see some familiar faces.

Fremantle is an embarrassment of riches at the best of times, but January/February also now brings with it the travelling roadshows of the Falls Downtown and its older rival in WA, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival. Laneway inhabits Esplanade Park and Freo’s West End and has made itself rightly comfortable in doing so.
Genre-fluid Scottish band, Primal Scream, have contorted easily from psych-pop to Stonesy rock to electronica throughout their 35-year career, with guitarist Andrew Innes there alongside frontman Bobby Gillespie for almost all of that time.
The band’s forthcoming Australian tour is their first visit to our shores in two-albums-plus-five-and-a-bit years.

Electric Fields’ performance for the Perth Festival touched the soul, connecting with the human spirit. The feminine male duo represent a unified energy; feeling their way through the performance in a manner that felt absolutely inviting. The undertones of moving forward through adversities in life through positivity, were inspiring.
