Hostess Club Weekender returns for second show

Following a successful debut in February, Hostess Entertainment has announced a second edition of the Hostess Club Weekender on our shores.

This time slated to be held at Infinite Studios, the line-up boasts indie darling Cat Power as headliner, along with an intriguing selection of acts which include Blonde Redhead, Perfume Genius, Sohn and Toy from the label’s expansive repertoire.

The first Weekender, which brought us the National and Mogwai along with rising up-starts King Krule, Asgeir, and Buke & Gase, launched to a massive crowd at Fort Canning Park earlier this year.

The adventurous line-up adds to what is becoming an increasingly saturated year for shows, with many fans likely to still be recovering financially from Laneway and the first Hostess Club Weekender and preparing for the slew of shows to hit us in July including Slowdive, The 1975, and Bombay Bicycle Club.

This latest announcement comes as part of Hostess Entertainment’s regional expansion, with shows also announced in Manila and Taipei. The Japanese independent music company opened its first Southeast Asian office in Singapore last year.

Cat Power ‘Nothin’ But Time’ teaser

A teaser video to long-form film ‘Nothin’ But Time’ directed by Aaron Rose has just been released, starring two female teenage BMX riders and their bikes, helmets and heels in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The film is a collaboration between Rose and New York fashion label Tucker and features the girls hitting the trails in sun dresses in the hills of New Mexico.

It was a coincidence that during filming, Cat Power’s album Sun had just dropped, and driving through the beautiful landscape, Rose thought that the opus ‘Nothin’ But Time’ fit perfectly.

“The way Chan screams, “I wanna live!” just fits the freedom of jumping bikes and bombing down hills so perfectly. It was a match made in heaven.”

The full video is still in the making and will be set to the whole 11-minutes of  ‘Nothin’ But Time’.
