Hmm.. I don't know how it happened, but overnight it seems like Singapore became this incredibly hip city!
Think it all started with the Aussie-based Laneway music festival that's coming here next year, bringing Ladyhawke, Warpaint, Temper Trap, and other great bands to our little island!
Then there was the announcement that Crystal Castles is popping over for a gig at Zouk, Yvan Rodic of the Facehunter blog is coming for a book signing and the icing on the cake - MGMT is coming as well in March 2011!
Great great moves for the indie scene in general and I'm just overly exuberant! Waiting for more raves in some random warehouses, a bona fide art walk and maybe even some guerilla gardening to pop out of nowhere! And some extra grit on the streets, thank you (if you live here, you know what I mean)!
Meanwhile, here are some scenes from Laneway fest in other cities via gingerfoxvintage & frontrowdiary .
I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of some great SG festival style next year & post it on this blog!! Gotta Represent! xo
