Bandwagon Gig Picks: July 2014

ORIGINAL SUNDAYS | JULY 6, 13, 20, 27

Like Baybeats and Identite, Original Sundays started out as an initiative by Red Kite to provide a platform for local artists to perform and to encourage Singaporeans to support the local music industry. Original Sundays return in its 3rd instalment to Beer Market this July with a month-long series featuring the hottest young acts in Singapore including the likes of Gentle Bones, Stopgap, Bravepaper and many more. Best part of all - entry is free.

VADER LIVE IN SINGAPORE | JULY 14

No, not the Star Wars villain. We're talking about Vader, one of the most prolific death metal bands in the world, playing in Singapore for the first time ever thanks to Street Noise Productions! Catch the Polish quintet live at The Substation come July 14 in a night of visceral growls and savage blastbeats together with special guests Ossuary.

RUSSIAN CIRCLES LIVE IN SINGAPORE | JULY 20

Chicago's post-metal icons Russian Circles return to Singapore for another evening of blistering soundscapes! Appearing for the third time round thanks to KittyWu Records, the trio now come armed with their latest (and greatest) record Memorial, a dark epic filled with even more beastly layers of thick basslines, menacing riffs and ominous drums. Zouk (#savezouk!) plays host to the show, so you know you're in for a very good sonic expedition.

THE 1975 LIVE IN SINGAPORE | JULY 22

They just played at the Pyramid Stage at mega festival of festivals, Glastonbury and are now heading for Singapore real soon. These androgynous blouse-shirt wearing, floppy fringe sporting indie rockers really know how to do indie anthems and singalong crowds. Their debut album itself has produced multiple hit singles in a short time, and is hailed as a love letter to youth, played out in bold and brash technicolour. 

BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB LIVE IN SINGAPORE | JULY 29

This year Bombay Bicycle Club put out a really great album so there's no surprise that we're all very excited about their return to Singapore. Fresh from the festival circuit, Bombay returns to the *SCAPE stage (thanks to Symmetry Entertainment) where we'll no doubt be dancing to their delightful, worldly, dance-y tunes like Feel, Carry Me and Shuffle.

SLOWDIVE LIVE IN SINGAPORE | JULY 31

Just when we thought we'd never get to see these recently reunited shoegaze legends live, Symmetry Entertainment takes us by surprise by bringing Slowdive all the way to *Scape in their only South-east Asian headlining show! Catch this massively influential band this July 31 as they run through classic songs from their classic records Just For A Day, Souvlaki and Pygmalion.
