1 Why Don’t We [Concerts]
Why Don’t We is currently gearing up for their largest headline trek to date, the 8 Letters Tour. Don’t miss your chance to catch their breath-taking live performance. The prolific young group ranges in age from 18-21 years old and came to fame within 12 months of releasing their EPs.
Personally, my favorite is the ‘I don’t belong in this club’ with Macklemore. Can’t tell you how much I was hooked to this song. The beats, the video, the lyrics, PERFECT! So this is a golden chance for you to watch them perform in front of you if you’re a crazy fan like I am..

Singapore’ premier outdoor music and arts festival Neon Lights is back in Singapore and is happening on the 23rd and 24th November.

Well, I say this because, heading the main stage of the festival will be HALSEY!

5 The Merry Lion Comedy Café and Bar [Comedy]
Before I write anything about this, just look at the name. It comes from the Merlion and them trying to associate it with the Merlion, this sunny island’s symbol! So, the name itself gives you welcoming feel right? Moving towards the comedy shows, these are held thrice every week. Yeah, that’s quite frequent right? That’s because The Merry Lion is the first full-time comedy club in Singapore. So, they bring in comedians from all across the globe along with the local comedians. Crazy part is, the show is 2 hours long, which is generally not the scene for stand up. Nevertheless, book your tickets in advance to avoid being bummed about not being able to attend! Also, if you’re an avid fan of stand-ups, you could consider buying their membership 😛 More details in the link below!
Be quick, it’s only happening on the 26th, at 12pm and 6pm.
Tickets: Stand Up
Where? The Merry Lion Comedy Café and Bar

One of the most famous comedians, here in Singapore, is Kumar. You think of comedy and his name does pop-up. He is known as the Queen of Comedy and has been joking about politically incorrect truths and sexual innuendo for all the while he’s been around. His bravery to speak up on such sensitive and controversial topics is extremely popular. Oh and he loves to poke fun about all things taboo in Singapore too leh! 😛 He performs at the Canvas Club, which is an amazing place to hang out!

Singapore’ clubbing and bar scenes are mostly sorted. It’s safe during the day and the night, so even if you stay late, it’s not a thing to worry about. But to give the usual bars and usual concerts a competition, Cool Cats has a “cool” concept of discovering craft cocktails inspired by the key moments in the history of Jazz music. That’s not it! You sip in these drinks while enjoying live entertainment by international artists. They say, “Cool Cats is where sophisticated tippling and premium entertainment proudly co-exist”. Isn’t that a badass statement to make in itself?
