Coffee gets eclectic as Oriole Coffee + Bar will turn the coffeeshop into a creative corner. Taking place on 11 April 2015, Saturday, from 3pm to 7pm, #OrioleCreates is all about exploring new ideas, being inspired and inspiring a creative lifestyle that invigorates all the senses. Enjoy a day of music and creative arts at the Orchard joint this Saturday as the cafe gathers local artists for an afternoon of good coffee and more.
Bring home some customised illustrations on the day created by talented illustrators Ann Gee and Yan Rong. And if it’s body art you’re looking for, Tiffany Tan of Lovage and Victoria Woon of Hellotako will be on hand to help you. Lovers of literature, there is also something for you. Members of the Proletariat Poet Factory will be activating their talent to help you craft a poem or two.
For the bookworms, a BooksActually pop-up booth will be onsite as well. Even better news, enjoy 50% off a bottle of the delectable Taisho coffee for every book purchased at the cafe.
An Acoustic Afternoon with Local Acts
We’ve got the live music accompaniment settled for you as Bandwagon presents a selection of acoustic acts for the day. We'll be turning the music stage into a cosy paper forest so bask in the lush tunes all day. Featuring four local singer-songwriters it's a good day to soak up the chill vibes at Oriole.
Tim De Cotta
Bringing on the cool will be Tim De Cotta of jazz-funk outfit TAJ. Styled in R&B and HipHop, Tim draws influences from artists such as Frank Ocean, John Legend, Common and Mos Def while styling his bass- playing after the likes of Derrick Hodge and Stuart Zender.
Joie Tan will serenade you with her breezy indie-pop tunes. Enchanting and introspective, at times romantic, Joie will charm the crowd slowly and surely.
Armed with haunting melodies, a rich, mellow voice, careful instrumentation, and wistful lyrics, Jawn's contemporary take on acoustic folk-pop is something to look forward to at the musical showcase.
The Little Giant
Indulge in the dark and whimsical stylings of Hilary Yang aka The Little Giant. Drawing inspiration from books, movies and essentially the tragic undertones of life and love, The Little Giant may sound bright and almost cheery but hang on, there’s more to the lyrics than she lets on.
