This week sees UK band Honeyblood’s debut performance in Singapore as well as the return of the annual Singapore International Jazz Festival. Looking for something else other than music? Support a local comedy production, visit a HK/SG photobook exchange exhibit, and pig out at FYR as they celebrate their second anniversary.
Formed in 2012, Honeyblood hails from Glasgow and they’ve been touted one of the most exciting new UK bands to emerge in recent years. Taking inspiration from dark and cloudy ’90s indie rock luminaries like PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Lush and Throwing Muses, Honeyblood are a glorious combination of noise pop and indie rock. Songs for Children welcomes them to Singapore for their first time here.
This Chord and Others is a comedy about friendship and a witty exploration of identity through the eyes of three young men – Sukdev, Gerald and Thomas. The three friends work together and enjoy spending time with one another, until a bump in the road threatens their friendship. Be tickled pink by this local performance!
This Chord and Others is happening from 30 March to 2 April 2017 at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Tickets are priced from $17, available via Sistic. For more details, check out their event page here.
