The Bird, an alternative, trendy and eclectic independent music venue based on William Street in Perth's Northern suburb of Northbridge. Bustling with creative energy and fantastic live music from across Australia and the globe.
The decor is fantastic. They have a live event on almost every night of the week and the courtyard is ace for summer nights. The location is perfect given that it's nestled away from the hustle of the city.
Although most events are pay on the door or ticketed, there are a number of free events each month for those that are budgeting or those who love a free night out. The venue attracts bands from all over Australia as well as international artists that are looking for a cool venue to play as they tour Australia.
The capacity is about 150, meaning that the atmosphere can be very intimate, and also meaning that tickets can sell out fast for popular shows, so keep your eye on the Birds event pages to avoid being disappointed.
The Bird hosts all kinds of events from live bands and DJs to spoken work evenings, album launches, single launches and workshops. Definitely worth a visit if you're travelling to Perth any time soon.
