Colab April II
Sunday April 22, 8:30 - 10:30pm
The Moon - Cafe
No booking required.
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 an exceptionally high number of excellent humans:
Matt Smith - trumpet
Brendan Scott Grey - sax
Aaron Malone - vocals
Gordon Cant - keys
Joe Southwell - bass
Ben Falle - drums
Hosting duties from Nelson Mondlane and MACSHANE and for a Colab first, an interstate MC host: Big Village head honcho Rapaport !
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.
