TGIF!: Your weekend guide (27-29 Sep)

Are your ears still ringing from the crazy F1 weekend? Whether it was the revving of engines on tarmac, or the catchy anthems of Rihanna and The Killers, we’re sure you’re still recovering from all that blissful chaos. But that doesn’t mean you need to take things down a notch now that F1’s come to an end. Just have a look at what’s happening this weekend.

First up, the gigs are far from over! Fresh from the release of their reunion album ‘Bloodsports’, Brit-pop veterans Suede will be returning to our shores to play hits from their latest collection, as well as their immortalized classics like ‘Trash’, ‘She’s in Fashion’, and ‘The Wild Ones’. Welcome back Brett Anderson and gang!

And talking about fashion, immerse yourself in 75 years of the fashion film genre with Dressing the Screen: The Rise of Fashion Film. Curated by fashion filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson and part of Digital Fashion Week, the exhibition will feature the history and developments in fashion film, and also rare archive materials from female filmmakers and how they respond to shooting the female form. So strike a pose of approval if you’re excited.

Here’s one fashion accessory for a good cause. Pin on those pink ribbons, and join the walk against breast cancer at Pink Ribbon Walk 2013. Raising awareness for breast cancer, the annual event is back with a 4.1km walk around Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade. Expect entertainment from bilingual musical artistes, and also from the inspiring Paddlers in the Pink, a dragon boat team made up of breast cancer survivors and supporters.

To all you new parents, or if you have one well on the way, get ready for some family fun at the Rise & Shine Expo. With over 120 premium exhibitors, you’ll surely pick up some fascinating purchases and pointers from key celebrity speakers. There will also be a Nickelodeon Meet & Greet, colouring and parade contests, kids’ classes, and countless other activities for you and your lil’ ones to enjoy.

But don’t worry Dads, we’ve got some manly events picked out for you too. Take a trip down Carnival Nostalgia Lane 2013, an occasion which celebrates the first year anniversary of barbershop/tattoo parlour Hounds of the Baskervilles and the grand opening of men’s clothing store Tuckshop & Sundry Supplies. So if you feel like sporting a pompadour and a gentleman’s shave, with live music, vintage vehicles and all-day barbecue and rum, saunter down for one sophisticated experience.

And here’s another one for the ale enthusiast with an appetite for laughs. Globally recognized as The Pub Landlord, Al Murray presents ‘The Only Way is Epic’ tour, a two hour stand-up comedy show which raunchily covers everything from stereotypes to xenophobia. Hailed as one of the greatest stand-up comedians in the UK, this is one rowdy character you’ll love to rub your beer bellies and chuckle along with. May contain vulgarities.

Of course what’s some beer without some music to get intoxicated to?  Dropping at Zouk all the way from down under will be progressive house duo Feenixpawl, who’s gained international support from the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, and David Guetta. With such globally acclaimed praises, together with numerous awards and #1 chart spots, this is one duo you need to keep your eyes (and ears) on.

And if you’re more of a stout connoisseur than a beer guzzler, you won’t want to miss 2013 Guinness Arthur’s Day Singapore presents: The Fray. Celebrating 250 years of the established brew, the details of this exclusive event has been one of the most excitingly kept secrets all month. What we can be certain however, is that it’ll be headlined by none other than pop-rockers The Fray who’s known for their hits like ‘Over My Head (Cable Car)’ and ‘How to Save a Life’. Click here to read our interview with The Fray
