The Itchyworms Return to Singapore to Scratch an Itch

It has been almost a decade since The Itchyworms performed in the city-state of Singapore.
The now-iconic Marina Bay Sands was still under construction, for one, and Universal Studios
was probably still in blueprints.

The last time the band was there in 2008, they performed in a double bill with Marcus Adoro.
First, to serve as his backup band, playing songs from his seminal solo album, Markus Highway ,
and second, to play their own songs. The night ended in an epic extended jam on old
Eraserheads songs.

The years have only made the band’s wanderlust — itch, to borrow from their name — for
Singapura that much more insistent. The hunger for the hawker holy grail that is authentic laksa
is quite real, and so is the thirst for performing in front of new audiences, such as Singapore’s
music-loving folk, whether expats or locals.

Now, the band will finally get to scratch their decade-old itch for Singapore! The Itchyworms
have partnered with the awesome people of Pinoy-powered events group Requiem Rising SG,
to bring you an extraordinary one-night only musical experience. On 03 November, all paths
lead to Hero’s Bar. Whether your hankering is for food, drink, or really good music, it’s sure to
be satisfied.
