Ed Sheeran in concert: Holy shit someone came to Perth?

By Brittany Asplin

Sheeran’s second show at the new stadium; how did the new stadium measure up?

In the few months of the Optus Stadium being open, there has already been much debate over the new stadium, the controversial ‘public transport only’ route with no Ubers or any private cars asides from the expensive taxis; the overpriced food and drinks menu, and the delays of getting out of the stadium after a show or game.  With this article I hope to answer all these questions for you.

By Georgia Renee

I’m never sure whether that’s good (because you don’t get accosted) or bad (because I’d like to think people care about who runs our guild). If you actually attend your classes, though, you probably would have seen the posters up on campus last week – and now we have a new guild executive for next year! I decided to sit down and chat with Kombo Mashumba, our incoming president, so you guys can get to know who’ll be running the show in 2018.

Patrick Marlborough is a Perth based comedian and freelance writer, namely for Vice and Junkee. Last February Patrick dropped his first comedy ‘mixtape’ “Barley Bombings – Goofs By Patrick Marlborough”. Barley bombings is a collection of Marlborough’s live performances recorded over the past 2 years. His recent debut is fearlessly funny.

Patrick and I hung out at JB Hi-Fi, I asked him some questions and we checked out what the ‘best of Australian comedy’ section had to offer. We didn’t buy anything.
