Get Lit To Sing Lit Sounds: A Discord Disco
#BuySingLit brings local literature to us in a whole new way with a silent disco paying homage to three of our official languages: Malay, Chinese, and Tamil. Jam out to exclusive music produced by local musicians .gif, Fauxe, and Mantravine, enjoy some readings and open-mics for all languages, and even participate in an AMA (ask me anything) with the musicians.
Travel Around The World In 80 Days With ANDSOFORTH
The Observatory is a band that’s easy to love but impossible to describe, having traversed various styles from folk electronica to progressive and avant rock in its almost-20-year history. But if there’s one thing that’s stayed consistent, it’s their spirit of resistance and reinvention. Catch their current lineup of Yuen Chee Wai, Dharma, and Cheryl Ong perform an eclectic set as part of LASALLE’s Lunchtime Concert Series. This show is part atonal, part post-punk, part improv, but all awesome.
