Shim Sham at Hullabaloo 2016

Swing dancers in Perth know one thing, and it’s this: it doesn’t matter what kind of week you’ve had, Mustang Fridays are where lindy hoppers go for loud bands and fast floors. A wonderful and treasured part of our scene, no weekend – let alone Hullabaloo – would be complete without a dance or three at the Mustang, so join us there and let’s ring in the weekend in true Perth style.  The top section of the bar will be booked out for us, with some food platters and drink specials from 6:30pm.  Come down for a drink and a chat before the band kicks off at 7.

Spilling out into the streets on a Friday can mean all manner of things to the lindy hoppers of Perth –  cosying in for a drink at a local small bar, or grabbing a bite at one of the many Northbridge eateries. On Hullabaloo weekend you can still do all of that; but when you’re done, head down through the streets and laneways, through Yagan Square or over the Horseshoe Bridge, to our amazing venue Huzzard Studios for the first late night of the weekend.
