Something about the bohemian nature of our back loungeroom really suits the 40s french gypsy jazz meanderings of Sassafras Quartet!

Featuring:
Lachlan Gear & Aaron Deacon – Acoustic guitars
Pete Jeavons – Double bass
Adrian Galante – Clarinet

Haunting and whimsical journeys from a talented four piece on beautiful stringed instruments, sounds like our kinda Thursday night! Especially if you chuck a couple vinos in there..

Perth Poetry Club – Every Saturday from 2-4pm
You’re not dreaming, and you’re still in Western Australia – it really is a spoken word show every week in central Perth WA, with professional sound, in the friendly retro ambience of The Moon’s back room.

Everyone’s welcome. Come and listen. Perhaps bring a poem (your own or a favourite) to share in the open mike.

You don’t have to be a poet to enjoy this. There is nothing to join and no need to book.

Entry is free, and nobody is excluded, but we ask people to contribute according to their means so we can meet our expenses.

Open mike spots are 3 minutes, or shorter if it’s busy. We don’t reserve spots ahead of time – turn up on the day and put your name (or your cool stage name:-) on the list.

This is ‘scene central’ for WA poets and poetry fans.

See, be seen, or skulk in the corner in true Western Australian fashion.

Jack Davies (Solo)

with Chidgzey (folk)

8-10pm, Sunday 21 October

Do you like beautiful music? Delicious food and drink? Good company from your pals? Excellent!

Jack Davies is one of Perth’s most exciting new singer songwriters. He is heavily influenced by his experience growing up in the vibrant local poetry and music scene of Freo. His songs are lyrical and often witty folk tales of suburban Perth. Usually performing with his band “The Bush Chooks”, Jack is this time performing solo just for you!

Also performing on the night is Chidgzey, an folk singer songwriter new to the scene but already producing some beautiful tunes. Chidgzey recently released his debut self titled EP, which is available on spotify now.

Catch them both on Sunday October 21.

Music from 8pm | Entry is free43698339_1130531233776934_5838095512980422656_o

RnB/Soul Jam Session

The Night Squad Jam is a new hub for singers and musicians on the WA circuit and beyond, providing the foolproof mid-week hang – for music and good times lovers alike!

Imagine soul jams and pop grooves, chart classics by artists such as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to current sensations like Anderson .Paak. We create, re-imagine and jam it all.

Shouting out to all vocalists, musicians and cheerful people of any level – we welcome you to sing and/or play (or handclap!) alongside our house band, a stew of insanely talented musicians with a diverse and flexible catalogue of songs.

We’re a nuts-and-bolts style jam session. Rock up, pick a song (anything!) and put your name on the list. Our musos are versed in many styles and whilst we pay homage to our soul/pop and jazz roots, our jam embraces all genres from hip hop and gospel to reggae and electronica.

FREE ENTRY
The Moon has an awesome dinner and drinks menu for you to get amongst!

Colab

Live Improvised Hiphop Jam

7pm Kick Off!, Sunday 28 October

36857646_1937996712886729_1298185338736345088_nColab is Perth’s longest running open-mic freestyle night and falls on the second and fourth Sunday of every month. You can expect some of Perth’s best MCs to come down and present their amazing lyrical improvisations to an equally-extemporaneous band, which this month will be comprised of:

MCs, singers and musos welcome to get up and freestyle/jam – just come and introduce yourself to one of the hosts beforehand or in the set break.

And just so you know: It’s ABSOLUTELY NOT OK to be misogynist, sexist, racist, xenophobic or homophobic at Colab. We know these attitudes are sometimes hard to separate from hip hop culture, but we believe we change that.

The Moon does NOT accept bookings on Colab nights, so the rhymes are dished out on a first-come first-served basis. The Moon does good for the scene by putting this event on for free; perhaps consider returning this by getting something to eat.

Colab is proudly presented by The Moon Cafe.
