TGIF!: Your weekend guide (14-16 March 2014)

From old school rock 'n' roll legends to new school K-pop superstars, there's plenty of music to catch this week. But there's also Singapore Design Week and fun activities for the family. Read on for more details. 

Concerts & nightlife: 

Catch a free live screening of the Rolling Stones concert at Marina Bay Sands on March 15. While the veteran rockers are playing their sold out concert in the grand ballroom, you can watch a live simulcast the MBS Event Plaza. Before the main show, there’s a whole line up of Singapore rock bands to whet your appetite. More details here.

VIPs listen up! Over at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, catch Big Bang’s G-Dragon, Seungri and Taeyang for an exclusive fan meeting. Expect perfomances of their solo records, including G-Dragon’s “Coup D’Etat” and Taeyang’s “Ringa Linga”. Besides songs, they will be engaging with fans via stage activities.

It’s the last three days of the tenth and final edition of Mosaic music festival. Catch The Big Pink and Young Dreams on Friday, The John Pizzarelli Quartet and Alpine on Saturday, and Neko Case and Charlie Lim on Sunday.

Japanese 'math rock' never looked so good. Tricot, an alternative rock band from Kyoto, is known for their complex chord progressions and post-rock-inspired tunes. On Friday, they hit Home Club as part of their Asia tour. Just check out their stellar track, 'THE'.

Over at Zouk, it’s one night only with famed Swedish DJ, Eric Prydz at Eric Prydz Presents Pryda Featuring Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander. It will be his only club stop in Asia, and his Asian debut before he heads over to Future Music Festival Asia,
