State Theatre Centre of WA and RTRFM presents the Courtyard Club 2021. Free, live, local music.

In what has been a very tough 18 months for local music and theatre, the State Theatre Centre of WA and RTRFM are excited to announce the return of The Courtyard Club, a free 7-week concert series taking place every Friday evening from 5 November to 17 December in the Courtyard.

RTRFM are pleased to be teaming up with The State Theatre Centre of WA for the seventh year to bring live, local music into the heart of Northbridge at the iconic State Theatre Centre Courtyard.

The Courtyard Club has become the perfect place to start your weekend with friends as Vishnu brings you Friday Drivetime live with local music thrown in.

It all kicks off on Friday November 6 as part of Perth International Jazz Festival, join us from 5pm for a live set from Daniel Susnjar Afro Peruvian Jazz Group, then stick around for a free night of jazz in the Courtyard.  

Throughout the series you can enjoy the rootsy wonderment of Bambuseae Rhythm Section and the folk of Smol Fish, the indie pop of Man Sandal and Young Robin, the journeyman blues of Dave Hole and songwriting of Tashi Hall (Solo).

The magic of Eloise Madison and The Struggling Kings, the improv jazz sounds of Trisk and Turiya.

And we close the series out with a party to say goodbye to 2021with a party of all parties featuring Ken Paolo and The Space Cadets and Randa and The Soul Kingdom.  

Each live set will be followed sets from some of the best DJs in town,  Taylah Strano (Breakfast with Taylah), Matt Perrett (Drivetime), Nina BC (Full Frequency), Pindan Princess, Colin Morrison (Underground Solution) and Larry D and TLC closing out the series.

The Courtyard Club is an all-ages event with licensed bar and food options, making it the perfect meeting place to celebrate the end of the working week.

Enjoy free live radio with Vishnu from RTRFM and local music under the stars in the beautiful surrounds of the State Theatre Centre Courtyard every Friday from 5 November ‘til 17 December.
