Staying in bed is overrated, especially when there's this much going on. Here are five places you should be this weekend

Full Steam Ahead: An indie-disco beach festival series
We trust the Lo and Behold group to smash out an awesome celebration, and this time, Tanjong Beach Club plays host to sounds from Belgian nu disco producer Aeroplane and LouLou Players, as well as indie local maestro Adrian Wee (aka weelikeme). Mexican street food and a DIY coconut bikini station complete the lineup.

23 May, 12pm at Tanjong Beach Club. Tickets here.

Music Matters Live: Gentle Bones

After making a huge splash in the local music scene with the release of his EP last year, Joel Tan (aka Gentle Bones) has just been signed to Universal Music. If you've never heard of him, catch his folk-pop artistry at Music Matters Live.

23 May, 9.10pm at the Fountain Stage, Clarke Quay. Tickets here

Lepark: Car Boot Sale Party

We've heard of garage sales, but a car boot sale is definitely something new. For $20, you can fill up your trunk with goods you want to sell – Lepark allows things old and new – and get in on the action. Come evening, sate your appetite with tapas and four types of craft beer on tap. Ten points for making this a pet-friendly event as well.

23 May, 3pm at 1 Park Road.


The Projector: Mad Max

The original is always better — or is it? If you've seen the current remake, get ready for a blast from the past with the 1979 original starring Mel Gibson showing at indie cinema, The Projector. If the post-apocalyptic genre is not your cup of tea, Dallas Buyers Club (the film that scored Jared Leto a much deserved Oscar) is also on the schedule.

23 May, The Projector. Tickets here.
