Expat/local music scene?

Post by snowandmusic » Sat, 30 Aug 2014 10:35 pm

Hi,

I'm moving to SG later this year, what's the music scene like? I'm looking to join a band, ideally something experimental/creative rather than rattling out covers of The Blues Brothers ;-). Is there much of a local live scene for less conventional stuff, or even any musicians about into that?

I'm looking for a krautrock/punk/new wave kind of thing. Something like Neu! with a twist would be right up my (lonely?) alley.

Cheers!

S.

To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Yikes! If I end up in a band playing 'Mustang Sally' to corpulent suits I think I'll hurl myself into the nearest volcano.
