St Jerome's Laneway Festival 2016 Line-up

22 Sep 2015 by Arissa Ha

The much-anticipated St Jerome’s Laneway Festival will be back on 30 Jan 2016 and we have the deets on the acts you can expect for a mind-blowing Saturday. 


For starters, CHVRCHES is back! Local fans have been missing the Glasswegian trio since their last performance at Laneway Festival 2013. With the release of their second album Every Open Eye, CHVRCHES is definitely one act you shouldn’t miss. 

Battles NYC

Hailing from New York, Battles fuses technical proficiency with explosive polyrhythmic drumming and buzzy guitars to create their very own unique sound. With their most recent album release La Di Da Di, you can expect a truly explosive experimental rock performance. 

cashew chemists

Inspired by the music from the southern states of USA, Cashew Chemists marries western traditions with modern Asian rock ‘n roll – producing music that is distinctively theirs. The rock quintet has also gained critics’ praise for its revivalist sound and clever song-writing. 

Watch out for other local acts like Riot !n Magenta and Intriguan in the mix. 

Here’s the full line-up of acts in alphabetical order:

  • Battles
  • Beach House
  • Big Scary
  • Cashew Chemists
  • Cheats
  • DIIV  
  • East India Youth
  • Flume

16 Sep 2015 by Venetia Sng

The competition is coming to an end! Have you been following the contestants of Teenage Gorgeous You! The Social Challenge? Well if you haven’t, no frets, we’re here to sum up what happened over the past 3 weeks.

Challenge 1: First Impression


The contestants met for the first time and were given a scrumptious treat at Jack’s Cola Cafe! Being a social media influencer isn’t easy! Just look at the amount of effort they put in just to get a good shot of the food!

Challenge 2: My [email protected] Weekend List



Next up, they head down to [email protected] to give us their weekend recommendations on where to eat and where to shop!

Challenge 3: Because Nexcare


Though the contestants look flawless all the time, they do have acne problems (like us mortals) too! So it’s Nexcare to the rescue!

Challenge 4: Teenage Magazine is my…

The very last challenge is for them to tell us what Teenage Magazine means to them. Check out their super creative entries and let us know who’s your favourite!

Who will be our winner? Stay tuned to the finals happening this Friday by following us on Instagram @TeenageMagazine!


Guide to STGCC 2015

9 Sep 2015 by Venetia Sng

Calling all the nerds, geeks, cosplayers and everyone else who’re into toys, games and comics! The annual Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) is back and there are so many things to look forward to this year so here’s a gist of what to expect at STGCC 2015!

Exclusive Merchandise

Expect loads of yummy merchandise at STGCC! It’d be a world premiere of the Iron Man Mark III (Stealth Mode Version) Collectible Figure and fans at STGCC will be the first in the world to be able to purchase and bring home this unique figurine. Psst.. it will be available in limited quantity only!

TIP: Go early and bring cash, just in case the NETS machine breaks down.

Walk of Fame

Get your comics and merchandise signed by artists like Jim Cheung and Adam Hughes! Both boasts impressive portfolios like Iron Man, Young Avengers, Uncanny X-Men, Wonder Woman and Catwoman. Take note of the Walk of Fame schedule here!

TIP: Do not try to get the artists to sign any bootleg items, or images printed off the internet! Authentic works by the artists themselves are very much appreciated.

Panels to Attend

Enjoy various panels organised by STGCC! Catch cosplayers Tadaaki “Jacky” Dosai and Stella Chuu at the ‘When East meets West’ panel as they share about how different it is to cosplay in the West. And if you want to know about what’s coming up next for your favourite comic, make sure you chop a spot for the ‘Talking Comics’ panel where comicdom’s biggest names Adam Hughes, Jim Cheung, Adi Granov and CB Cebulski talk about their works.

TIP: During an ongoing panel, do not talk loudly or ask questions when there isn’t a Q&A session. It’s kinda freaky.

Checking out the Cosplayers

How fun would it be to see your favourite characters come to live and maybe take some photos with them too? Professional cosplayers from overseas and tonnes of local cosplayers will be there to show off their stuff, so take this opportunity to fangirl/boy over your idols and ogle at some eye candy. 

TIP: Be respectful to all cosplayers! Everyone is there to have a good time so keep your hands to yourself!

Be wow-ed by Theater Tol’s latest performance! A vibrant parade starting from Armenian Street brings to life a surreal world of dancers, musicians, flowers and animals that take to the streets in revelry. The parade culminates at the National Museum of Singapore, with a spectacular aerial carousel of angels descending from the heavens and showering gifts over everyone.

Pixels Wave 2015 by Miguel Chevalier (France) at National Design Centre

Take flight on this giant light carpet inside the National Design Centre, featuring multi-coloured graphic scenes and geometric patterns that react to visitor movement and interaction. A collaboration between artist Miguel Chevalier and local designers Carrie K and Depression, this new creative work utilises optical illusion to create the sensation of a shifting kaleidoscopic floor. Totally #Instaworthy!

The Local People X Singapore Art Museum Night Fest Art Market

It’s for ONE NIGHT ONLY people! So head on down, get lost in the music, treat your mouth and shop shop shop!

Churros by Bakes and Crafts at Festive Village

Trust us when we say that these are a must-try when you head down to the village this year! They serve 3 main flavours – Pandan Churros with Gula Melaka Sauce, Red Velvet Churros with Salted Caramel Sauce and the classic Churros coated with cinnamon sugar. We highly recommend the Pandan with Gula Melaka flavour, it’s the bomb!

Drinks with illuminated ice cubes by Kapok at National Design Centre

They serve a wide array of concoctions but it’s really the super cool ice cubes we want. How awesome does it look?!

Creamsicles by Neh Neh Pop at Festive Village

Double-coated creamsicles packed with outrageous flavours! Grab these pops before they go *pop*, they are super popular with festival goers and there were only 2 flavours left towards the end of the first night last weekend! Flavours to chiong for are the Mango Sticky Rice and Milo Dinosaur!

Crispy Roast Pork by Uncle G’s Handmade at Festive Village

In for something savoury? Go for Uncle G’s Handmade Signature Crispy Roast Pork! Though we didn’t try this dish personally, we’ve heard so many people rave about it and the never-ending queue really speaks for itself.
