Weekend Warrior: Kick off July with wine, dancing and karaoke

Welcome to the Weekend Warrior, where we offer you some great ideas to make your weekends less boring. Check out our selections for this week:

Songs on Screen

Did you secretly pretend to be Scarlett Johansson and sing The Pretenders’

“Brass in Pocket” after “Lost in Translation” came out? If so, you might want to join Moose’s “Songs on Screen” party tomorrow. This party is for soundtrack nerds who enjoy the music even more than the movies.

July 1, 9pm – 2am. THB100. Moose (Ekkamai soi 21).


AMCHAM’s Independence Day Picnic

The AMCHAM picnic is an annual Bangkok expat tradition. A big, fat slice of old-school Americana, it’s perfect for those missing home — or those who just want to pig out on hot dogs and beer and celebrate ‘Murica.

July 2, 12pm-8pm. Early Birds: THB200, Tickets at gate: THB300. NIST International School (Sukhumvit soi 15).


Live Bone

Three Japanese artists  will team up to perform “Live Bone” this weekend. The idea behind their dance performance is the body parts, their functions, life and souls. The artists move around as a surreal skeleton to send a message about life and death.

July 2-3, 3pm. Adults: THB450, Children under 16: THB150. Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.


Karaoke Twilight

Karaoke bars are saturated with neon lights on the outside, but dark inside. This charming contrast inspired Thai photographer Taweewit Kijtanasoonthorn to shoot some photos of these bars, which will be displayed in his “Karaoke Twilight” exhibition.

July 2, 3:30pm. Free entry. Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.


Strings and Grapes

Ditch the nightclubs and house parties and get classy on Sunday with “Strings & Grapes,” a party that offers wine and live classical masterpieces by Mozart, Beethoven and Dvorak.

July 3, 5:30pm. Members of Neilson Hays Library: THB500, Non-members: THB600. Neilson Hays Library (Surawong road).
