Five things to do this weekend: 2 - 4 October
Brace yourself for a weekend of your worst nightmares and the best artsy beats

FILM | The Projector Freaky Fridays

Serial killer Freddy Krueger's back to welcome Halloween at The Projector. The cinema buffs are starting their midnight screenings for October with A Nightmare on Elm Street, the 1984 classic that never gets old — if you're too chicken, look forward to a 21-year-old Johnny Depp (in his big screen debut) who might just calm your nerves.

2 October, midnight at The Projector. Book tickets here.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

CULTURE | Goodbye 74 to 80 Commonwealth Drive! 

Yes, the SG50 celebrations never end — if you missed the chance to catch the seven-directorial effort 7 Letters, mark your calendar for 5pm tomorrow. In an effort to bid farewell to one of Singapore's most iconic estates before it is demolished, the community is hosting film screenings, a photography exhibition by Nicky Loh and Erwin Tan as well as performances by Shigga Shay and Tay Kexin.

3 October, 11am to 5pm at Blk 75 Commonwealth Drive. More info here.


MUSIC | Empra Live in Singapore with Caracal

If you're on the hunt for new music, plug into Empra, a three-piece rock band in town this Saturday. The Melbourne-based rockers are Singapore musician Sanny Veloo, bassist Matt Agius and drummer Georgia Flipo who've just released a video for their single Rebecca. Caracal, who were recently in New York for Singapore: Inside Out, also joins the lineup.

3 October, 5pm at Hood Bar and Café. More info here.

MUSIC | The Courtyard presented by W Singapore - Sentosa Cove and the Singapore Art Museum

The Singapore Art Museum is putting out a stellar lineup that consists of our favourite names in music: Mr. Has, Cats on Crack, Aldrin and Brendon P. Other local DJs join their ranks at the space — the museum's courtyard — where music, art and drinks collide, tipples courtesy of a WOOBAR pop-up.

3 October, 6pm to 2am at SAM Courtyard. 

Woobar SAM

FOOD & DRINK | Tiki Takeover

All the birds sing words and the flowers Open Farm Community. The establishment of the season plays host to a Tiki Takeover, where glasses are swapped for coconut cups and thongs are welcome — both on your body and feet. Brooklyn native DJ Synapse will turn this tropical hood a-dancing, while diners can expect goods from Tippling Club.

4 October, 3pm to 10pm at Open Farm Community. More info here.
