Alternative music is back with a vengence, brought to you by the same team of madcaps that created Heart of Darkness! This time, its in a bigger venue (for those of you who complained about the old GH system, now no more excuse!) and with a fresh lineup! The music policy has been tweaked to have some more female/radio friendly elements as much as an "educational" serving of the best underground acts locally - encompassing the full spectrum from punk/hardcore/metal/emo/goth/industrial alongside familiar indie names. We are not out to recreate a fatfrog/timbre/homeclub or whatnot, this is aimed at being the Default alternative music showcase.
The purpose of Alternation is similar to HOD: to educate the public in the more niche music, promote local subcultures and establish a platform for local alternative musicians. The global scene is moving in a gothic direction, yet branching off in different ways to intersect metal and punk elements. The whole idea is to bring that kind of vibrancy to Singapore without compromising its aesthetical and ideological background. Without saying, we will still be waving the Singapore Dark Alternative Movement (SDAM flag) for this.
PLEASE support this platform because with consistency we could be looking at better funded and more interesting shows!
