A lot of people say that Perth is a shithole, full of mean conservatives and stinky miners and the only thing they're good for is boosting our economy with their sweeet sweeeet mineral resources.
When actually it appears to be a phantasmagoric lollyscape of plastic corals and porcelain Bambis. And if people knew the truth I don't think Perth would have such a bad name. Bands might even start including Perth in their Australian tours!
I blame the east coast bias of the mainstream media.
