Hit up Velvet Underground this Friday (March 16) for another instalment of the very funky Darker Than Wax & Velvet Undergroundpresents 3RD PARTY. Residents Jeremy Boon, the Funk Bastard boys and Kaye team up with Swedish soul man Andreas Saag for some block busting beats.

The Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) is opening its 2012 season with one of the greatest classical ballets of all time, Swan Lake. In this tale of the ultimate whirlwind romance, the Princess Odette is captured and turned into a swan by the curse of an evil sorcerer, Von Rothbart. Only the true love of Prince Siegfried, a man of pure heart and deed, can render the spell powerless, and reunite them in love. This production is helmed by SDT's artistic director Janek Schergen.

He’s one of the world’s most influential artists and he’s having his own show right here in Singapore. Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal is the renowned pop artist’s biggest display of his work here. As part of the exhibition, three artists from the region have also been selected to showcase their works as an exploration of Andy Warhol's influence. This collection is exclusive to the Singapore venue of the exhibition at ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands.

Where’s the best place to showcase an art exhibition on beach photography? At the beach, of course. Hit up Tanjong Beach Club to check out Aquabumps which features the works of photography Eugene Tan whose images offer a different perspective on beach life.

If all these are too taxing for you, why not get physical in some of Singapore’s best green spaces. Or escape the buzz and kick back with your loved ones at lush watering holes
