Asian-American YouTube sweetheart Kina Grannis has recently announced that she will be holding a showcase in Singapore on the 18th of June at Hood bar and cafe at 7pm.
The last time she was supposed to come to Singapore on tour, she along with Singaporean singer-songwriter Gentle Bones and several others were held in Jakarta due to issues with their performance permit.
This time, she'll be in Singapore filming for the upcoming film adaptation of the novel Crazy Rich Asians, and decided to make up for lost time with a gig here while she was at it!
During the performance Kina will be playing some of her new songs as well as old favourites such as Valentine, and will be headlining alongside opening acts such as Imaginary Future and The Facade.
Doors open at 7pm, and tickets are going for $68 a pop. See you there!

Dubbed the 'Peoples' band' of Taiwan, FIRE EX., one of the most critically acclaimed Rock bands in Taiwan are bringing their tasteful, heartwarming brand of Rock to the American market in a 4-stop U.S. Tour.
Making stops at San Francisco on the 19th of July, Los Angeles (21st July), Boston (23rd July) and ending with a final stop in New York City to perform at the Taiwanese Waves Showcase, the band who are fiercely proud of their Taiwanese heritage will show you a side to Taiwan's music you've never expected.
Taking home the 'Best Single' award at the 26th Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan (the equivalent of the Chinese Grammys) for their single 'Island's Sunrise', many of the Kaohsiung-bred band's songs touch on topics relevant to the political and cultural landscape of Taiwan.
The single in question brought them international coverage as they wrote in in support of students protesting at the 2014 Sunflower Movement in Taipei, and quickly became the anthem of that year's protesting efforts.
Performing mainly in Taiwanese dialect, the band's sound is hearty, moving and inspiring, adhering closely to Rock tradition, but with a meaningful, uniquely Taiwanese twist inserted through their melodies and lyrics.
Don't miss out on their U.S. performances this July!
7/19 SF - Brick & Mortar Music Hall
