Courtyard Club returns once again to the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia courtyard. 

The series opens on Friday, 4 November with six hours of Perth’s finest electronica, indie rock and avant-pop as a part of WAM Fest’s Friday showcases. Kicking off at 4.30pm, catch Catlips(DJ), Lana, Our Man in Berlin, Phocal, Puck & Rag n’ Bone playing long into the night, all broadcast live-to-air on RTRFM’s Drivetime.

In November, the series will see live sets from groove extraordinaire Eleventeen Eston; indie rock stalwarts Sugar Army, who recently released their third album Beast to critical acclaim; and the sublime shoegazing sounds of Dream Rimmy, fresh from the release of their new single Landslide.

Throughout December, Courtyard Club grows even more diverse, with sets from rockabilly stalwarts Rusty Pinto and Band; Perth indie rock legends The Rosemary Beads, who’ll have their first album in 20 years in two; exultant folk-pop wunderkind Lucy Peach; and the irresistible, inimitable funk-soul stylings of Randa and the Soul Kingdom.

Each set will be broadcast live on RTRFM’s Drivetime, followed by RTRFM DJs including Will Backler, Diger Rokwell, Henry Maxwell and more, spinning tunes long into the evening.

Courtyard Club is a free all ages event with licensed bar and food options, making it the perfect place to kick off the weekend, unwind and bask in the stellar selection of local music our city has to offer.
