Edges – The Musical: 2 pairs of tickets to giveaway!

By alvinology, April 13, 2013 2:00 am

Edges - The Musical

Last Thursday, I just watched Edges – The Musical, directed by Derrick Chew and produced by Sight Lines Productions:


Edges is a contemporary musical about coming of age, hopes and dreams, love and yes, addiction to Facebook when it first started.

The musical follows a song-cycle concept that is new to the Singapore theatre scene. Edges is an original New York production by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and it features the famous song, Be My Friend, that has come to be commonly known as the ‘Facebook song’. It has been staged more than 100 times in North America, Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa.

Being a social media addict, I had to watch it just to hear the cast sing the ‘Facebook song’:


Interesting?

The songs will resonate well with those born in the 80s and 90s as they tend to cover themes and growing up anguishes around that time period.


If you like musical and am interested to catch Edges, it is showing at Drama Centre Blackbox at the National Library Building from 3 – 19 April 2013. Tickets can be bought via Ticket Mash.

I have 2 pairs of tickets to giveaway for 15 April (coming Mon), 8pm performance. If you are interested to catch Edges – The Musicalsimple go LIKE my Facebook page @Alvinologist and drop me an email at alvinologist@gmail.com with your name, email, contact number and NRIC/Passport number by 14 April (this Sun), 4pm. The two winners will be selected via random draw and notified on the same day.

The Glad Stones’ Gypsy In The City – 3 x Autographed Copies to Giveaway!

By alvinology, April 9, 2013 11:52 am

Who are The Glad Stones?

They are an indie band based in Singapore who love making music with a feel-good vibe – “the kind you’d load into your mp3 player when you’re lazing by the beach under the hot tropical sun”.

This arrived in my mailbox a week ago

They sound like The Beatles jamming with The Kooks and Fratellis. Here’s a few of their music videos to hear it for yourself:




The Glad Stones was formed in 2011, when two Singaporean singer-songwriters, Marcel Lee Pereira and Jaye Foo, met in 2010 while on separate musical journeys.Both of them have completely different styles: funky hip-hop versus soulful folk, but when they started making music, they loved it so much that they decided to team up.

You can find out more about them on their official website, YouTube channelFacebook Page or Twitter.

The Glad Stones have recently launched their new CD, “Gypsy In The City” and it is available for sale at all Starbucks Singapore stores. Do support them and their music.

They are done with their Singapore tour in March and will be on a Japan tour this month.

Btw, Marcel is a schoolmate and colleague of mine. His publicist sent me a copy of his CD for review and THREE AUTOGRAPHED COPIES OF “GYPSY IN THE CITY” TO GIVE AWAY!

I do not really know how to review music, but I find the songs all really easy on the ears and gives a light, lazy but happy feel. Pretty good stuff. Go buy their CD!

Alternatively, to win a copy, simply LIKE my Facebook Page and leave a message on my wall to say why you would want to win the CD. It would be good if you can share The Glad Stones’ music video or official website with all your friends too.

The three lucky winners will be selected via a random draw by 15 Apr (next Mon). :)

Shop. Eat. Chill.

What is it about Singapore that makes you go… “Shiok!”?

Here is a fun introductory video to kickstart the campaign:


Interesting isn’t it? After so many years of rejecting Singlish, we are now finally embracing it as a part of our national identity and what makes us uniquely Singapore.

What makes me go “Shiok!” in Singapore?

I believe enjoying good food is something all Singaporeans can appreciate. Here are some nice food photos I took during the launch event at the Singapore Food Trail at Singapore Flyer:
