Heineken Green Room returns this year with an incredibly eclectic lineup. New York indie-pop band The Drums and British DJ TEED are two headliners of the gig. Indie darlings The Drums are noted for their ‘pre-new-wave-tinged nostalgic pop’. Their music influences draw from The Smiths, Joy Division and ’60s girl group The Shangri-Las. They have also been supporting bands like Florence + The Machine and Kings of Leon on tours.
Also headlining is the eccentric British electronica DJ, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED), who is known not only for his music but also his extravagant headgear and light shows. His massive hit ‘Household Goods’ has amassed over two million views on YouTube, so we know TEED is going to deliver a show with some stunning visuals on the live circuit.
Local talents Twilight Actiongirl (TAG), Deer Society and Darren Ashley are also performing tonight. It’s worth mentioning that TAG will be collaborating with visual artists Callen Tham (themancalleduncle) to curate some of the artworks and installations in the Green Room. We have yet to find out exactly what they’ll be showing – word on the street has it that these talented lads will be pushing the limits of what a Green Room can be. Experiment away, guys. Ian Loh
