Spend your first September weekend immersing in the socio-cultural arts
MUSIC| Good Times X Revision Music
Enjoy an eclectic evening of hip hop, funk, soul, afrobeat, bass and more. This edition of Good Times is curated by Revision Music, a new home-grown crew that's aiming to connect audiences with artists and quality music. Made of husband and wife team Nez and Rah (the latter's from electronic record label Darker Than Wax), it's a great opportunity to discover a new favourite genre.
4 September, 9pm at Blu Jaz Café. Click hereto view the lineup of artists.
THEATRE | Hello Goodbye
From the company that brought us God of Carnage and The Pillowman comes Hello Goodbye, a snappy and honest take on love and relationships. This feel-good romantic comedy has already sold out in London, with the story making its way to Singapore through the Singapore Repertory Theatre. Starring Denise Tan (Dim Sum Dollies) and Shane Mardjuki (Shakespeare in the Park - Twelfth Night), it's the perfect way to laugh at the way we cruise the perils of modern-day romance.
Till 26 September, 8pm at DBS Arts Centre. Book tickets here.
SHOP | Sunset Pasar
Calling all indie kids and hippies: Sunset Pasar is the place to be this coming Saturday. This flea market of eclectic, vintage and pre-loved selections also hosts free-for-all open mic performances. Located on a rooftop along Arab Street, this is one flea to add to your growing list of alternative shopping haunts.
5 September, 2 - 7pm at Shophouse The Social Hostel Rooftop. For more information, clickhere.
COMEDY | Dylan Moran: Off The Hook
