This Wednesday, Aliwal Arts Centre will be co-presenting a night of original live music in partnership with Noise Singapore, showcasing three Music Mentorship Programme mentees: Efficient Public Transport with their haphazard blend of pop melodies, driving bass lines, and Dada-esque lyrics; alternative rock quartet Faux Pas and their love for the Arctic Monkeys; and The Neptune Waves, the four-piece collective that embodies euphoria and despair in every song.

Aliwal Presents: Noise Singapore is happening on Wednesday, 21 September 2016, 7.30pm at Aliwal Arts Center. Tickets are priced at $10, available at the door. For more details, check out the event page here.
