9837 Miles To Texas

Help homegrown talented singer Inch Chua realize her musical aspirations by attending this benefit show, which features acoustic sets by Talk To The Walls, Plainsunset, Caracal, B-Quartet, Amateur Takes Control, A Vacant Affair and – of course - Inch herself. Proceeds will go towards flying her (and a small crew) to the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas, where she has been invited to perform.

Friday only, at 15 Minutes @ LaSalle College of the Arts. Free admission but donations are encouraged.

 

Osunlade

Groove to Osunlade’s wide repertoire ranging from jazzy soundscapes narrating his time spent on the magical Greek island of Santorini, to deep, percussive house tempos that mirror those he’s unearthed from his ancestral roots in Africa.

Friday only, at Velvet Underground, Zouk.

Calvin Harris

Don’t miss this Electropop/ Nu Wave Boy Wonder who went from posting his own DIY music through MySpace to signing with multinational giant EMI almost in a single step.

Chinatown - Horizon of Changes

Experience Chinatown through Chankerk’s eyes, most characteristically expressed with impulsive gestural strokes to capture a Chinatown “state of mind”.

Florence and The Machine

Fiery-haired ingénue Florence Welch and her band, The Machine, finally debut in Singapore with what promises to be a scorching virgin performance in a double-bill bonanza also featuring indie darlings The xx.
