It might be Christmas, but we're rounding up five events that would be worth the visit any time of the year

GIG | REWIND feat. OSUNLADE (GR) // Kavan, Dissoul 

If you're losing interest in run-of-the-mill EDM drops, Osunlade's fare might make your weekend. Known as the "the messiah of ancestral house music", the producer will be playing his unique blend of spiritual beats on Christmas night.

25 December, 10pm at kyo. More details here.


With releases from the likes of Shigga Shay and Mean this year, it looks as if hip hop and rap are experiencing a revival on our shores. BASE LIVE knows it too, which is why they're bringing both household names and up-and-coming artists like Mediocre Haircut Crew to the mic this weekend – props are in order.


26 December, 6pm at Aliwal Arts Centre. More details here.

GIG | Making Waves....since 1995

If you've ever lamented that city life stifles creativity, a visit to Straits Records is in order. Better yet, celebrate the 20th anniversary of the alternative music store with them, as they bring you 3 days of quality local tunes; we're looking forward to .gif, hot off their latest album release. If that's not enough, the Rilek Jack Night Market will be joining in on the festivities, with food, merchandise vendors (such as Canopus Distro below), and much more on sale at the scene – get your tickets accordingly.

25 - 27 December, at 5pm, 7.15pm, and 3pm respectively at Straits Records. More details here.

COMEDY | Laughter Is The Best Medicine! - Kumar's Stand-Up Comedy Live

Stand-up comedy in Singapore is a deeply underrated way to spend a night out with friends, and even more so on a holiday weekend. Snap up your tickets quick, as the ever-so popular Kumar is taking the stage tonight to give us his unique dose of humour.

25 December, 10pm at 101 Jalan Sultan, #02-01. More details here.

PARTY | Beer Is Food Blockparty!

If you're in agreement with the title, you'll probably love the party. Newly opened Kult Kafé is playing host to the final bow of beer garden Beer Is Food, with 10 craft beers on tap, a garage sale (of beer, surprise), and a range of other food and drink options to sate even the most acquired of tastes.

Kult Kafé

27 December, 3 to 11.55pm at Kult Kafé. More details here.
