The line up...



Old Blood


Old Blood, 2x winners of the WAM Best Blues Act award and veterans of the Perth Live Scene are back! After a covid induced hiatus the boys form WA are ramping up again with new shows and tunes. Led by Frontman Tony Papa-Adams the band features Edo Ekic (Grievous Bodily Calm) on Guitar, Julian Peet (Sad King Billy) on lead Guitar, Shaun Liddel-Jennings (Ruby May Band) and Tyler Ray MIchie (Ursula). The boys play a dynamic blend of Blues, Soul. RnB and Rock heightened by a live performance that has earned them the reputation as one of the best live acts in town. Tony Papa- Adams as front man can command the crowd with ease as he is engulfed by the music, played by some of the best musicians in town, and takes the audience on a shared journey of cathartic release. No single Old Blood set is the same as another, so keep an eye out for them around town as they aim to play more shows more often adding new tunes and guests along the way.






Carla Geneve is an award winning, Albany born singer-songwriter based in Perth.

Backed by a captivating show and unique brand of brutally honest lyricism, Geneve established herself as one of Australia's most recognised up and coming artists. 

The debut LP from Carla Geneve ‘Learn To Like It’ is a 10 track tour de force through teenage emotion and the complexities of coming of age.

Traversing an expanse of sonic territory from punk, blues, country and Australiana future classics, ‘Learn to Like It’ has been described by Australian Guitar Magazine as “…a beautifully bold, powerfully personal introduction to Geneve’s world as an undoubtable creative prodigy.”





Simon London + the Spirits


After a long hiatus of 12 years, Simon London + the Spirits reformed in 2021, returning to live shows and recording Don’t You Forget About Me, their fourth studio album.

The first single of this album – Troposphere – is out now.

Song-writer, singer and guitar player – Simon London has always had different material to delve into across his eight solo and band albums for live shows. However, it was perhaps unsurprising when he reinstated his band the Spirits as playing in a band has always been London’s favourite live vehicle.

With three album releases to their name and a track record of ongoing tours, the Spirits were Simon’s main touring vehicle from their inception in 2003, enjoying radio airplay and touring frequently on both sides of the country, all the while building a loyal fan base. Then in 2009, weeks after the release of their third album, Simon left Australia to live in Sweden with his wife and the Spirits were shelved indefinitely.

Don’t You Forget About Me is a true album in the traditional sense; 12 songs, 2 sides and intended to be heard and absorbed chronologically from start to finish. With the passing of the inaugural Spirits’ drummer in 2020 –a key motivation in the band’s reformation – the new songs evocatively mine a deep vein of material around themes of relationship, loss, shared journeys and celebration of this beautiful, fragile thing we call life.

So, with his well-travelled Telecaster in hand, Simon will front the three-piece Spirits as they present the louder, rockier material of his song-writing through WA dates.
