TGIF!: Your weekend guide (31 Oct - 2 Nov 2014)

Scary season reaches its penultimate heights as Halloween is here. 

So watch out for the freaks in costume tonight as they go out trick or treating or painting the town red. 

Dance music fiends should head up to Freq’ender(31 Oct, 1 Nov), Singapore’s first Halloween freak show and music festival. Held at the terrifyingly isolated Infinite Studios, the event will see DJs such as 2ManyDjs, Hot Chip, Doorly and Aldrin rocking up Day 1 while Marco V, Morgan Page and Wolfpack headline Day 2. 

For more fright nights, crawl over to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore. It is by far one of the scariest events we’ve ever been to.

On the big screen, horror movies aplenty -- from the fantastical-horror of 'Horns' and the creepy demon doll 'Annabelle' to the downright scary 'Ouija'. Here's what to watch.

For more psychological intrigue, Pangdemonium’s ‘Frozen’ is still running at the Esplanade. Catch Adrian Pang, Janice Koh and Karen Tan as they force themselves to confront the darkest parts of humanity. 

Don’t miss ‘Queen – It’s A Kinda Magic’, a theatrical creation of the very best of Queen, over at Marina Bay Sands’ MasterCard Theatres. Catch the recreation of Queen’s 1986 world tour concert, featuring over 20 of Queen’s greatest hits such as ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

If you’re into J-Pop, Japanese trio Perfume will be performing at the Resorts World Theatre this Sunday. 

Students of history will definitely love ‘Singapura: 700 Years’, National Museum of Singapore’s latest exhibition where you can travel back in time to learn and rediscover Singapore’s 700-year history. 

Orchard Road will close for the second edition of Pedestrian Night on 1 Nov. Yoga label lululemon is organising a mega yoga session catered for 1,000 people. Yoga instructors like Lynn Yeo and Sumei Shum (space+light yoga), Thicha (AntiGravity) and Patrick Beach (BeachYoga in Seattle) will lead beginners and stretch pros to the hip hop beats dished out by Koflow, Alicia Pan and Kevin Lester. Bring your mats and reserve a spot on here.

Men get your razors ready as Movember starts tomorrow! Head down to the Heeren on 1 Nov to see “Mo Bro” Fandi Ahmad, for a live shave-in at Robinsons Heeren to kick off the campaign on 1st Movember. Gillette is also donating $10,000 worth of razors and shaving gel to Movember, so Mo Bros across Singapore can keep their upper lips stylishly groomed throughout the month. 

Also for Movember, The Local People is organising a night market on 1 Nov at People’s Park Complex carpark (levels 5 & 6) for the cause. The market will showcase the work of some of Singapore’s finest handicrafts men and women. Head down for food, fashion and locally made knick knacks from vendors including South East Sliders, Afterglow, A.K.A. Wayward x Mojak, Dodt, Plume and Preen. Local acts such as Weish, Gardener, Underground Shenanigans and Sunset in Antarctica will be entertaining the crowds.
