TGIF!: Your weekend guide (21-23 Feb 2014)

This weekend Singapore plays host to some of the world’s best sailors at the 2014 Extreme Sailing Series. Held at Promontory @ Marina Bay from 20-23 February, 12 teams will be competing this year, including former Olympic competitors from Russia and Great Britain, as well as Singapore’s very own Scott Glen Sydney and Justin Wong (Team Aberdeen).

Along with catching the race action, there will also be plenty of activities for the kids at the race village. The Happy World of Haribo will have everything from exhibits explaining the science of sailing and knot-tying classes to a fun bouncy castle and game stalls. Race village is open from 11am and admission is free.

There’s more for the family. As part of its monthly free movie screenings, City Square Mall is screening ‘Madagascar : Escape 2 Africa’ at B1 Fountain Square tonight.

Music-wise, it’s a packed weekend with everything from the 90s pop of Michael Learns to Rock, to the exquisite indie of The National and atmospheric post-rock of Mogwai at Hostess Club Weekender.

Over at Zouk, American DJ, Kaskade will be in town tonight. He’s no stranger to Top 10 hits, having scored nine on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Charts. More details here.

Arguably one of Kaskade’s most recognisable hits, ‘Atmosphere’

This Saturday, don’t forget to head down to the arcade-themed Zouk members party and the indie music melange that is Poptart at Velvet Underground.

If you’re still experiencing a Valentine’s Day hangover, it’s your last chance to catch Toy Factory Production’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’. Meanwhile, Pangdemonium’s 'tragicomedy' about love, ‘Fat Pig’, is having its run till 2 March. Check out our interview with lead actress Frances Lee.

There are still some good seats left for the Saturday and Sunday matinee performances of 'Fat Pig'

Over at the Arts House, there’s a film forum on modern–day slavery in Asia. Over two evenings (21 and 22 February) catch screenings of thought-provoking films such as ‘Anonymously Yours’ and ‘The Price of Sex’.
