RTRFM is celebrating 30 years on air of one of the station’s flagship specialist music programs – Woodstock Rock – with a huge night of music at Mojo’s Bar in North Fremantle on Friday 17 January from 8pm to late.
Featuring a number of very special one-off collaborative performances celebrating the music of the late 60s and early 70s. Containing members of Deep River Collective, Shallow Creek will play a mind-melting set of psych and blistering prog workouts. Local supergroup Thee Children of Nuggets will present a selection of garage rock classics from the original Nuggets era, featuring members of the High Leary’s, Cheater Five, Three Orange Whips, and Tenderhooks. Kevin Chennell and Sam Blight will offer up pastoral folk and protest songs that cut to the heart of the social and political concerns of the times.
And to cap it all of, laying down everything from fuzz-rock stompers to psychedelic wig-outs, the Woodstock Rock DJs will play between sets in the Mojos main room, as well as keeping things groovy outside in the beer garden. Your musical gurus for the evening will be Captain Trips, Deep Purple Pete, The Fabulous Furry Freak, Paisley Ray, Richie Rich, and Rhymin’ Simon.

Woodstock was an event that defined a generation, and became a signifier of everything that the 1960s stood for politically and socially.
For thirty years RTRFM has celebrated the music surrounding that cultural movement. Woodstock Rock is dedicated to unearthing relics from the original psychedelic era, and dipping into psych, prog, fusion, folk and protest music. Tune in every Thursday night from 8pm to 10pm on RTRFM 92.1 – The Sound Alternative!
Tickets to the 30th Anniversary gig are $10/$15 (presale) available from rtrfm.com.au and $15/$20 (door), and free entry for Gold Subscribers.
Time: 8pm to late
Venue: Mojo's Bar, North Fremantle
