Noodle Palace will kick off its five-week run with an opening weekend of free shows featuring some of Australia’s most exciting live acts.
Doors open this Friday, January 19, the brand-new space in the Elizabeth Quay will be filled with the sounds of one of Sydney’s most exciting musicians Basenji, who burst onto the scene in 2013 with a unique blend of hard-hitting dance beats and uplifting melodies.
In late 2017, Basenji teamed up with Australian vocal powerhouse, Tkay Maidza to produce ‘Mistakes’. Instantly absorbing, Basenji’s punchy production floats between tender piano keys and casting horns. ‘Mistakes’ is intelligent and innovative production at its best, and serves as a testament to Basenji’s production prowess.
Entry for opening night at the Friday show is free before 8PM and $10 afterwards.
Also becoming part of the growing list of acts to appear at Noodle Palace will be triple j presenter/sesh-gremlin Alex Dyson who will launch Perth’s new weekend closer Noodle Sundays on January 21.
The chilled-out vibes of the soon-to-be Sunday routine will be accentuated by $8 Perth Local cans from Feral Brewery and menu specials from Bao Wow and What The Cluck with special guest DJs rotating through weekly.
The weekend will provide a first look at the new home of summer in Perth, with a sky deck to take in the optimum views of the Quay, as well as a revolving series of food vendors to fuel bodies and intrigue appetites during the long days and nights in the Palace ahead.
Feral Brewing Co will also be setting up shop for the season with their iconic Palace Bar, while Dazza’s Deck will be making a name for itself with the custom-made bar flipping snags and crackin’ cold ones all summer long.
For a more surreal sojourn, a custom-built hanging lounge garden will facilitate those who seek an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the popular bar areas.
For the thrill seekers, Séance will be nestled into the Palace’s front yard. An intense sonic performance that lasts for 15 startling minutes inside a pitch-black shipping container, prepare your sixth sense – it won’t just be the bar serving up spirits…
In addition to Alex Dyson and Basenji, Brisbane producer Young Franco will be laying down his signature tunes on January 20 as the team from Rushmore take over Noodle Palace. A fan of funky bass lines, vocoders and old disco records, expect nothing less than a dance floor in uproar when he takes to the stage.
Season’s Australia Day Party and Banana Social also have huge plans to leave a reminder of their time at the Palace with their special events – we’ll see you there.
