Hong Kong singers Hacken Lee and Alan Tam are stars in their own right. Together, they shine even brighter. They first teamed up in 2003 for a series of concerts and it was the start of a beautiful relationship as they have since held over 100 shows together. The pairing proved to be so popular that the duo marked its 10th anniversary with 13 sold-out shows at the Hong Kong Coliseum last Dec. Apart from the long list of hits from the two veterans, fans can also look forward to their entertaining banter on stage.

Richly dark and cinematic, the music from eight-man Penang post-rock outfit COMA is like a slow, sonic bludgeon to the cranium. At this show, they are joined by local groups In Each Hand A Cutlass and NeoDominatrix. So you can expect this gig to be gloriously loud and filled with intricate riffs and moody melodies.

Where: Hood Bar and Cafe, Bugis+, 201 Victoria Street, 05-07 MRT: Bugis When: Tomorrow, 7pm Admission: From $20, available at 3theshow.peatix.com

The set by Korean-based American duo Sighborggggg at the recent Baybeats music festival was deliciously manic, a rich, sonic assault of poly rhythms and discordant sounds made only by two musicians. Here is your chance to catch the math-rock duo again as they return for a hopefully lengthier set at local studio/gig venue Lithe Paralogue. Their set will be supported by home-grown acts the Psalms, Pixel Apartment and [.GIF].

Where: Lithe Paralogue, 1B Aliwal Street MRT: Nicoll Highway When: Tomorrow, 7.30pm Admission: $10
