I'm heading to Singapore next week for work, and since Brisbane has such a terrible jazz/blues scene, I always try to catch some great music whenever I travel.

Does anyone know of any good clubs in Singapore? I've found a few online (Crazy Elephant, Southbridge) etc, but it's hard to get an idea of the quality of music they have there.

Can anyone, speaking from experience, recommend a good place to check out some great live music?

Cheers

I second that request - have a 1 night stopover in Singapore on 25 June and somewhere to whittle the small hours away would be great.

Gig venues of note in Europe most appreciated too. Smaller places preferred.

Overseas travel awaits.....no Bluesfest for me in 2011.

Check out the Timbre nightclubs around Singapore - there are 5 - but the main 3 are
Timbre at The Arthouse, Timbre at The substation and Timbre at the old School - plus the mobile Timbre club.
www.timbre.com.sg
They often present international artists - dirty dozen, robben ford etc. - and are the centre of Singapore's live music scene....which has some incredibly good bands, quite a few of who have been booked to play Bluesfest.
they also are Bluesfest's partners in the Rock 'N Roots Fest in Singapore.
Thanks

I live in Singapore...Arts Festival is on at the minute - http://www.singaporeartsfest.com/

Jazzy - Blu Jaz Café or Southbridge Jazz@7atenine seem to have something going on, with the later a new venue for a long running club

youngsters keeping me at home, so I'm not a regular anywhere, but these two are worth a look...

So lucky to live in Newcastle and enjoy the thriving (and mostly free) music scene....

Some of tonight 's choice:
- Claude Hay at the View Factory
- Marshall & the Fro and Benjalu at the Brewery
- Milestones at the Wicko
- Heart Attack & Vine at the Lass
- Abbie Cardwell & Brothers Grimm at the Junkyard

Then maybe Gumball tomorrow......Collards Greens and Gravy at the Junkyard Sunday....... Half Nelson playing at the Darby Street Coffee festival on Sunday too.



Buddy Guy is without doubt the best guitar player alive.......the way he plays is beyond anyone. Amen

I think there is a good chance of a real arts break out in Newcastle in the next 5 years or so. Decrepit inner city gives rise to plenty of arts opportunities. Revival through creativity. Australia's own Seattle. Or Manchester.
