Perth Poetry Club

Where slams meet sonnets!

2-4pm, Saturday 14 December

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.

Colab: Hiphop Jam!

Hosts and band: TBA

From 7pm, Sunday 22 December

Colab 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 can 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.

NEW time of 2-4pm in the arvo!

The Fix

Live Jazz on the First Thursday!

8pm-Midnight, Thursday 2 January

On the first Thursday of the month you’ll strap in and tune out with The Fix! Our house jazz band since 2004.  The first gig we ever played host to, many moons ago, grew to be a crucial part of Perth’s musical history.  All of our local greats have sailed though this jam at some point or another, and the calibre of players never ceases to amaze… Not to mention they wail out for 4 hours!

From 8-12pm – Always free
