The Mercurials with Ray Pereira

The Mercurials with Ray Periera will play here, at Post Industrial Design on May 17th at 8pm. Book now to secure your ticket. Just print out your receipt for entry . . .  or if you are having problems online just call 03 93627703. If you are feeling like grabbing some pre show dinner and drinks doors open at 7pm. The infamous food  van, White Guy Cooks Thai, will be cooking their usual yummy fare. I cannot tell you how much I love the Mercurials and I am so excited about having them play here! So you can understand my excitement when Mark tells me that joining them for the second set is the man of rhythm himself - Mr Ray Pereira . . .  oh yeah! So who are The Mercurials? They would be Mark Ferrie, Adi Sappir and Andrew Pendlebury. All of which are brilliant musicians in their own right. Mark Ferrie and Andrew Pendlebury have a history going way back. Both musicians played together in the  the Slaughtermen in 1984. A post-punk alternative southern Gospel band described in rolling stone as "one of the most original bands ever to see the light of day in Australia." Seriously the funniest thing I found out  while doing my research is that when one of Mark Ferrie's early bands the Sacred Cowboys played their single "Nothing Grows In Texas" on CountdownMolly Meldrum said: "this is the worst group I've seen in five years", a title the band wore with perverse pride. Ha! Mark Ferrie is probably best known for The Models and more recently with the RocKwiz band on SBS one. Needless to say Mark Ferrie and Andrew Pendlebury have been doing the rounds in the Melbourne music scene and their respect in the industry goes without saying. The Mercurials lesser known star, however, is Adi Sappir. Adi is an Israeli cellist who's voice and artistry is pure gold! Adi is a real jewel in this trio. She brings a touch of Gypsy and melancholy to the band which I find totally mesmerising and unique. Mercurials have played in the Ian Potter Gallery at the,  National Gallery of VictoriaAdelaide Fringe FestivalPort Fairy Folk Festival and Mt Beauty Music Muster . . . . and OMG . . . now you can see them HERE in lill-ole-west-footsray! AND IF THAT IS NOT ENOUGH! The second set The Mercurials will be joined by none other than Mr rhythm himself Ray Pereira! This guy is seriously 'THE MAN' of percussion . . . and if he don't get your toe tappin I don't know what will.



Bookalicious video by Aaron Maguire

Bookalicious video by the talented Aaron Maguire. For those of you who missed the event you can now check out the dastardly  plots, children's performance from DramaworX, and all the crazy shenanigans of the evening. Bookalicious was an event which was part of the Maribyrnong Library Literary Festival. The festival ran a total of 15 events over 10 days. To view the video of the event click HERE

Aaron Maguire Photography

Hot off the press is some new pictures of Bookalicious from Aaron Maguire. Aaron Maguire is a local photographer/filmmaker who has partnered with us on many of our events – his work is amazing! He should have been called Mr Fabuloso . . or Mr Terrific . . . And who was that character in Get Smart who had a sparkle from his teeth? You know the guy? Mr Smiley? Anyway the point is this,  he is like him,  all glittery with greatness. I am sure by now Bookalicious possibly holds the record as the most photographed event in the west! But here are some more photos to feast your eyes on. 

A Bookalicious event

A Bookalicious time was had by all last night here at Post Industrial Design. The event was part of the Maribyrnong Library Literary Festival. People got in to the spirit of the evening by dressing as their favourite literary character. Everyone went to such effort . . . the costumes were AMAZING! It was a night of sharing our favourite books, murderous plots, and a sensational sleuthing by none other than Sherlock Holmes. Yes Sherlock Holmes . . here! The evening also saw the fantastic performance by a local children’s drama group, DramaworX. The children dazzled the crowd with their amazing show. Well done to all involved! We all shared in our favourite books, goobled down the fine food provided Miranda Jones and supped on wine till our bellies were full. Good times indeed! Thanks to all for coming and making it such a fabulous night. 

Gala launch with Kerry Greenwood

The Gala Launch of Maribyrnong Library Literary Festival kicked off with bang on Friday night. Kerry Greenwood talked candidly with the audience about growing up in Footscray, her love of books and the road she took to becoming a celebrated crime writer. To be honest I have a pathological hatred for speeches. Yep it is true. Normally my eyes start to glaze and I quickly scour the room for a quick escape route. But I have to say Kerry had me spellbound. She spoke from the heart, a truly honest, funny  . . . and can I say delightfully eccentric woman. Instead of scouring the room for my escape route she had me captivated . . . . yes ME! It was a great night and people really got into the 1920’s spirit! We even had Sherlock Holmes looking for literary clues! But the cat was already out of the bag. . . there is simply heaps of great stuff to do as part of the festival. Our event is fully subrcribed but don’t let that put you off! If your feeling slightly Bookalicious, still register your interest. You never know some people might just pull out . . . .
