There’s no better indication of the holiday season’s impending arrival than the rolling in of December. So what better way to kick off the festivities than with a mind-blowing local music lineup at Fred Perry’s 60th Anniversary Party this Sunday? If you’ve been to any of the Fred Perry subculture shows around the island, you know that besides designing a snazzy polo tee, them folks know how to throw a great outdoor gig.
Alex Kapranos-endorsed UK pop band Citizens!leads the charge and our sunny island folk Muon, The Great Spy Experiment and Obedient Wives Club (not to be confused with the actual manual; I was for a while) fill the bill.
There’s tonnes of other stuff going on as well, like a “curated street market” (any excuse to shop) and the premiere screening of “The Son Letts Subculture Films”, for all you anarchists/skinheads/mod kids/Chelsea FC fans/Kate Middleton groupies/fish & chips loving folk.
Date: Sunday, 2 Dec 2012; Time: 4pm - 11pm; Venue: Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

To whet your appetites, here’s “True Romance” by Citizens!, in a video that solves all mystery regarding how The Power Rangers would be if they danced the evil space monsters to death.
