GIG GUIDE with Chris Ho
  • Pop Tart's 9th anniversary party '9 Lives' ft. Au Revoir Simone (US; live) @ Zouk, Saturday, 22 Mar

    Pop Tart is Singapore's premier (yeah, first-ever) indie-Brit-pop club-night first held at small venues before being housed by Butter Factory and, now, Zouk's Velvet Underground, which hosts it monthly.
    Nine years is arguably the longest running of any club-night in Singapore - a fact not to be dismissed lightly. Kudos to brainchild DJ wee.like.me for turning Pop Tart into a happening clubbing-institution all its own. Highlighting Pop Tart's heart of jangly indie-electro is the American band Au Revoir Simone performing live in this celebratory event. Give it your love, people!

  • Midnight Shift presents Redshape (Germany) @ Kyo, 22 Feb, Saturday.
    German + techno is always a strong combination. All the more when the mysterious DJ (always in a red mask) is back to reprise his stellar spot at Midnight Shift's third anniversary party in 2012. Throw in two other key words - Detroit + dark  - and you'll have an idea of how the man rocks his techno.

    Pop Tart with weelikeme & co. @ Velvet Underground, 22 Feb, Saturday  the original indie-rock dance night still going strong
    Afrodelik with Ray Lugo (US) @ Piedra Negra, 22 Feb, Saturday  bass+Afro+dub+funk


  • DatDatDat presents Applebottom @Home club 14 Feb, Friday

    Applebottom is a hot, up-&-coming young DJ from the UK who's signed to Kerri Chandler's MadTech label (for a taster - https://soundcloud.com/madtechrecords). He happens to be a looker too. Should be exciting for bassheads at the premier hang-loose joint of indie-dance - Home in The Riverwalk. Valentine-smooching by the river optional.

    One advice - Don't grab and smooch DJ Ming (Home resident) by mistake.. they look a little similar... a little anyway.
