So we had The Gathering at Fort Canning, Sound Steady Saturday in the heart of Bugis, Getai Electronica on the rooftop of Chinatown, BANE’s S.E.A Tour and a couple of local band’s album launch this past few weeks. Now it’s time to spend your new year’s angpao on the next few amazing shows coming to you!

First up being Unleashed!, featuring Japanese electro funk guitar shredding songwriter Kenta Hayashi, dropping by Singapore for his Asian Tour, Intriguant with his live set, alternative outfit Livid Sun and instrumental Jazz trio, TAJ.
Sound of Feeling Nineteen is up next at the Lithe Paralogue Studio which features two debut bands, Hauste and Temple of Horses. Skramz quartet, Sifulan and also the ever popular, Paris in The Making, making an appearance after their Johor bahru gig.
Last show in February in the Lithe Paralogue Studio will be hosted by DUNCE. They’ll be bringing down Malaysian math-rock band, Dirgahayu, who played at last year’s Urbanscapes Festival in Genting.
