Colosoul Gig Guide

– by Aliza Caruso

A lovely little handful of gigs and local music events that we reckon are worth paying attention to.

With the official launch of Fringe World 2015 last night, Perth is in for yet another wild and indulgent month-ish of live music, cabaret, circus acts, comedy, theatre, film and all things in between (there’s even special kids’ events!). This colourful and vibrant festival is one of the largest fringe events in the world (in little old Perth, can you believe?!) and will be running until Feburary 22nd. There are free and ticketed events running daily. Check out the full program guide online here
