DJ Coshmar, who you might also recognise as the graffiti writer Snik, will be sculpting sets that’ll get the crowd moving. And for some Afrobeat spins, DJ Ness is your guy.

Now that’s what I call boyband music! at Nineteen80
What do ‘90s babies do when they are feeling rather nostalgic? They secretly listen to boy bands, of course. Well, Nineteen80’s is throwing a party to tell you there’s no shame in syncronised dancing and belting out cheesy lyrics. This throwback sesh celebrates days when MTV’s Most Wanted had Backstreet Boys, N’sync, Boyzone and others on loop.
BTW: Remember Blue, the boyband that gave us One Love and All Rise? They’re coming to town. Head to our story about all the concerts you can’t afford to miss this year for the deets.
Nineteen80, 21 Tanjong Pagar Road, #01-05, Singapore 088444

The Hoe Down
The Glory Hoes brings you a night with unpretentious music and an unpretentious crowd that’s all about embracing queer life.
