Quizzmas In July!

Trivia Night!

6pm Kick Off!, Monday 23 July

Merry Quizzmas One and All!!!

The Moon Cafe invites you to embrace winter with our Christmas themed Trivia Night; Quizzmas in July.

What’s involved?

As ever we’re cramming 5 rounds of fun into one evening. Music, a picture round and a Christmassy General Knowledge round, plus…

As a special treat, we are dedicating two rounds to the BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIES EVER: Die Hard (1988) and Home Alone (1990). Trust me – if Hans Gruber doesn’t fall off a building, it ain’t Xmas.

If that’s not enough we’ll be playing a mini game of pass the parcel with real life (terrible) prizes you can win from under the Quizzmas Tree.

Homework: watch Die Hard (1988), Home Alone (1990) and have a rummage around for your best worst Quizzmas jumpers.

To get involved book a table of 4-6 people for free on 9328 7474 or email john@themoon.com.au to secure your spot.

Until then, Yippee Ki Yay Mother Flippers!!

The Night Squad

RnB/Soul Jam Session

9-11pm, Thursday 26 July

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.

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

Perth Poetry Club

Where slams meet sonnets!

2-4pm, Saturday 28 July

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.

Hayley Beth

with AA Matheson

9-11pm, Wednesday 8 August

Hayley Beth is a self-taught guitarist, vocalist and songwriter based in Perth. Starting out in punk, indie and garage bands in the early 2000’s, she eventually went solo and has since collaborated with various instrumentalists to independently release an EP, album and several singles. In 2013 she was chosen by TripleJ Unearthed to represent WA at the APRA Song Summit in Sydney. She has been nominated for WAM’s Best Female Vocalist and Song of the Year awards. Her influences range from Nina Simone to Black Sabbath and she rarely settles on one genre or subject matter, although she can’t seem to ditch the soul comparison, which she is totally fine with. She is currently performing in a duo with local producer Brendan Jay as HEEBIEJEEBIES, described by former Greens MP Scott Ludlam as a mix between PJ Harvey and Nine Inch Nails.

AA Matheson plays very slow and quiet country songs about best friends, love, abandonment and death. Sometimes they screw up but if they’re lucky nobody notices”

9-11pm / Free Entry
