A confession: I’m a lazy bastard. I (usually) prefer bumming at home during the weekends in front of my TV watching arthouse DVDs or simply lounging in my room listening to jazz or classical music (my profile picture is a dead giveaway). But I’d have been a fool if I hadn’t gone out over the past year because baby, is our local nightlife kicking or what!
Not only is the scene inundated with more quality DJs visiting our shores than ever before (Michael Mayer, Matthew Dear, Peter Kruder, Booka Shade and The Misshapes, to name just a few of the fabulous gigs that I attended in 2010), but there’s been also been sooooo many new bars and clubs openings (Ku Dé Ta, Filter, Kinki, Fabrika by Chivas 18), I’ve seriously run out of new rags to wear. What with all the other special theme parties taking place almost every week and massive outdoor dance festivals like ZoukOut (which require one to dress down for once), perhaps the best accessory a clubber can have is a cool set of friends to have a good time with (after all, a cool cat only seeks same).
Which is why I know I can always rely on hipster J, IT chick T, whisky connoisseur C and funky L for more rounds about town over the year ahead to check out the latest clubs and gigs in town (Avalon, here we come!). You know where to look for us—we’re the ones taking over the dance floors with our inimitable style and dance moves everywhere we go (Hint: I’m the one with the chicken dance moves). You can’t miss us.
