On the topic of community radio and memberships, did you know that Triple R is hosting a huge hot week of late-night gigs? That’s right, after last year’s popularity, Triple R’s April After Dark is back and bursting with 22 local bands like Lost Talk, The Smith Street Band, Primo, Hi-Tec Emotions, The Shabbab, Teenage Hate and so many more, all presented and broadcasted live from the Triple R Performance Space. What a great reason to stay up too late every night. And you know what’s even nicer? The fact that all of these gigs are free for Triple R subscribers. They are giving tickets to any of the After Dark shows this week to any subscriber who emails afterdark@rrr.org.au and if you’re not a Triple R subscriber yet, this is the perfect time to get on board because everyone who subscribes in April goes into the draw to win a plethora or prizes.
 
This Sunday at Neon Parlour Gallery and Studios there’s a real cool gig and magazine launch called Modulated By Noise. Presented and published by Nonlinear, Modulated By Noise is a collection of works from regular artists and performing artists from all over the world with the common theme of noise translated into 70 pages of black and white mania and five hours of performances. Catch acts like DFO:BAD, who transmute old Gameboys into raves and Perth’s eminent experimental oligarchs, Obscotch. Aside from maybe some of the strangest live acts you’ll ever see, there will also be art from the magazine displayed, so wear a zany, coloured raincoat and have an incredibly absurd Sunday.
