Five things to do this weekend: 5 - 7 June
Jump and jive
CRAFT MARKET: MAAD Pyjamas
Another weekend, another local crafts market — but this time, it's by one of the pioneers. MAAD Pyjamas returns for their monthly evening of retail therapy of the organic sort, with small homegrown businesses selling soy candles, illustrated prints and knick-knacks great for gifting. Fiery sushi by Fat Rice is also among the nosh options.
5 June, 5pm till late at the Red Dot Design Musem. More details here.
MUSIC AND ART: Attagirl! 2nd Anniversary
It's all about girl power with Attagirl! — a trio who continue to bring together female DJs and sick sounds. The varied line-up includes women from the FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp such as The Analog Girl, DR Reiki and Natalie Pixiedub. Keep a look out for up and comer DJ Yeule, who describes her genre as "shy ambient". You can shop art for a good cause too, as artwork sales from the night will be donated to the Autism Assocation of Singapore.
5 June, 6pm till late at Blu Jaz Café. More details here.
OPEN MIC NIGHT: Radiohead
If you're a Radiohead fan, you don't want to miss this. Sure, the band isn't going to be here anytime soon, but you can kick back and enjoy their music as performed by others. For the fourth time, Artistry café is hosting an open mic session for bands and musicians to perform up to three Radiohead songs of their choice.
6 June, 8pm at Artistry. More details here.
PERFORMANCE: Nosaj Thing
This LA-based electronic musician is known for his diverse sounds, so you never know what to expect on the night — which makes Jason Chung (aka Nosaj Thing) all the more exciting. Hot off the release of his latest album, Fated, he's here to bring the chilled out synths, heavy bass, hip-hop beats and whispery vocals to our city. Presented by Red Bull Music Academy and Feedback Asia, his gig is hosted at the underground club kyo. Only cool kids need apply.
6 June from 8pm till late at kyo. More details here.
EXHIBITION: The Deep
Did you know that more people have explored the surface of the moon that the depths of the ocean? A new exhibition at the ArtScience Museum, 'The Deep' is set in pitch-dark to give centre stage to luminescent deep sea creatures. This Saturday, get a chance to hear curator Claire Nouvian and artist Lynette Wallworth discuss their passion for marine conservation work. Highlights include an extremely rare sighting of a male angler attached to a female angler's body as part of the creatures' fertilisation process. Talk about clingy.
6 June from 2.30pm at ArtScience Museum. More details here.
