5 things to do this weekend: 13 - 15 April
Friday the 13th
MUSIC | Bass Supply ft. Rumbler
Hosted by local bass music collective BAOW BAOW, catch the pumping beats from guest DJ Rumbler. Known for getting into the electronic music scene in 2011 with jungle and drum and bass, the Spanish native (whose real name is Pablo Reguilon) has played in clubs from London to Toulouse. Local DJs DuriO, A/K/A SOUNDS and Eden YC will be spinning as well.
FESTIVAL | Big Road Market
Nestled along the entire stretch of Jalan Besar, step into the good old days of Singapore's very first amusement park, the New World Amusement Park. Part of the Singapore Heritage Festival, shop locally made crafts by brands like Artisan & Fox, Forest Collective and kult, and catch live performances by Fym Summer and Houg. Film buffs can check out the screenings of Wayang Boy and It's A Great, Great World.
Till 14 April, 5pm to 10.30pm at Tyrwhitt Road.
PARTY | Matua's Breaking The Ice: World's First Iceberg Pool Bar
Remember Eski Bar at Boat Quay? While we're not sure if Singapore actually misses such an unecessarily-themed drinking den, it's nice to take a chill pill from time to time. Kiwi wine guys Matua's coming to W Singapore Sentosa Cove with its iceberg pool bar in case you ever felt like something icy was missing from a regular pool party.
14 April, 2pm to 8pm at W Singapore Sentosa Cove.
DANCE | Giselle by Singapore Dance Theatre
Watch the ballerinas from Singapore Dance Theatre work their magic in this classic and heartbreaking ballet, which was first performed by the company in 1999. Choreographed by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot with a score by Adolphe Adam, first artist Elaine Heng will be making her debut as Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis.
Till 15 April, at the Esplanade Theatre.
THEATRE | Thick Beats for Good Girls
Written and performed by award-winning local poet Pooja Nansi and Australian playwright Jessica Bellamy, Thick Beats for Good Girls explores life as a woman in an ethnic and religious minority who also happens to be a huge lover of hip-hop. Directed by Checkpoint Theatre's co-founder Huzir Sulaiman.
