The Night Squad

RnB/Soul Jam Session

9-11pm, Thursday 24 January

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 26 January

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.



FRINGEWORLD 2018 - Dates: Jan 21-26

, Saturday 26 January

Jen leads a miserable life inside a TV soap opera, and her only respite is through song. Bridget, who knows she’s better than this, is the star of a sitcom where she has two children by Satan. Literal Satan. When the shows cross over, their lives become more musical, chaotic and unapologetically hilarious than they could ever imagine.A musical comedy sort of about making the best of a bad situation, sort of about making meaning in life, but mostly about taking control. Come for the inappropriate songs, stay for the dubious life lessons.Can Jen scrape together enough money to move off Bridget’s couch? Will Bridget face justice for killing her demonic child? Will their terrible shows be canceled? Tune in to find out.

Presented by:
Umbrella Works Inc

Umbrella Works Inc is a not for profit arts organisation supporting independent producers of contemporary performance in Western Australia.

Angela Donlan and Rachel Foucar are Perth based performers and creatives. Angela spends a lot of time working on film projects and Rachel has her first novel coming out soon.



Colab: Hiphop Jam!

Hosts & Band TBA

7pm Kick Off!, Sunday 27 January

PLEASE NOTE: Colab is now starting at 7pm ! Don’t show up at 9pm, or you gonna miss it !

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.

There are funny stories, there are sad stories, there are stories that were sad 800 years ago but are now just weird… there’s a story for everyone, and you’ve never heard storytelling like this.Join local Perth artists as they take stories as old as the written word and shake them up with millennial disillusionment and a healthy dose of self-awareness. Let the educational content and historical framing make you feel cultured while the casual format and moderate coarse language keep you laughing.

This genre-busting stand-up revue is being hosted in The Moon’s Loungeroom. You can count on a night out with delicious food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.
