Timbre @ The Substation

Timbre at the Substation is located in Armenian Street, directly opposite the Singapore Management University. It is a prime location in town and placed strategically amidst museums and art galleries.

Quaintly designed, the atmosphere beckons patrons to an enjoyable night with their famous varieties of thin-crust pizzas and buffalo wings. With good live music playing daily, this is a popular hang-out spot for everybody. Customers are always a mixture of students, adults and families seeking a good night out. The al-fresco setting is also a refreshing change of atmosphere from the usual indoor cafes.

The music is played by Goodfellas on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and well worth your time. Actively engaging the audience while making big waves with their performance, one can't help but love the way they play songs solection that range from R&B, Motown, classic songs to current pop and rock songs. The Killers and Muse make frequent appearances but they do play out song requests from the audience as well. With a solid stage, good food and the inevitable smooth beer down your throat, what more can one asks during a good night out?

Crazy Elephant

The name speaks for itself. This rock n' roll blues bar is known for its live and loud performances. With graffiti decorating its walls and a relaxed atmosphere, customers will feel as though they have been transported out of Singapore. With a spunky ambience, patrons will definitely sway or sing along with the songs being played on stage. Located in Clarke Quay, this bar is often full and bustling with liveliness.

With it's dimly lit interior and a serious array of beer choices to order from, this atmosphere demands the full attention from her customers to go along with the crazy beats on stage.

Wala Wala Café Bar

This bar is located in Holland Village and if you're planning to head there, do arrive early. Once the bands start playing their live music, you will be hard pressed to find a good seat in the house. A solid music house with good beer and duck-roasted pizza, regulars and new-comers form a healthy mix in this two storey café.

Actors the Jam Bar

Located at South Bridge Road next to the 7-11, this bar has an atypical concept. Instead of inviting bands to jam, “the customers are the stars”. At Actors, customers are given the opportunity to be a star for the night. One can choose to go up on stage and sing on the top of her lungs, play impressive chords on the bass or impress the audience with amazing skills on the drums set.

Do not confuse this venue with a live-karaoke session though, some of the customers who go on stage are pretty amazing so be sure to double check your own talents before heading up. Customers are generally supportive but the house wouldn't want a performance akin to a chicken being slayed alive, right? Another branch has recently opened up at Scape Mall, Orchard so take your pick and you will definitely be entertained or doing the entertainment for the night!

What is your Personality?

What is your Personality?

Music is the soul of life – and in today's digital life, music permeates every aspect of our lives. We are hooked onto music – plugged in or not – everywhere we go. Most of us define ourselves through the type of music we listen to. They reflect the type of personalities we have and thanks to the researches conducted by psychologists, we have empirical backing when we claim to be introverts or extroverts.

If you want to know more about yourselves, here are a list of type of music and the type of characters attributed to them.

Pop – Extroverted, honest, conventional, hardworking, high self-esteem, less creative and more uneasy.

Rap/Hip Hop – High self esteem, outgoing. It is actually not true that they are more aggressive or violent.

Country – Hardworking, conventional, outgoing, emotionally stable.

Rock/Heavy Metal – Gentle, creative, introverted, suffers from low self-esteem

Indie – Introverted, intellectual, creative, less hardworking, less gentle, passivity, anxiousness and low self-esteem.

Dance – Outgoing and assertive.

Classical – More introverted, at ease with themselves and the world around them, creative, good sense of self-esteem.

Jazz, Blues and Soul – extroverted, high self-esteem, intelligent, creative, at ease.

Researcher Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh who made this research famous said that people sometimes get defensive about their taste in music because music reflects their personalities, and thus is something close to their heart. Subconsciously, we do define ourselves through the music we listen to and these are the identities we wear in public.
