Promoter hopes to offer "premium" experience
The transformation of Perth's Black Betty's will be complete early August when the live music venue is reborn as the nightclub Parker.
The venue has been completely refurbished by new promoters Boomtick, who also run Ambar and Villa and are the local promoters for Fuzzy's Listen Out festival, and they will launch the new club Saturday 10 August.
Boomtick's Liam Mazzucchelli told theMusic.com.au that the venue will only operate on Friday and Saturday nights initially, with Friday aimed at capturing touring artists and Saturday focused on establishing residencies.
He said that Parker will be “Focusing on DJs. There are still options for live shows, but that's not the direction at this point.”
