We were spoilt for choice! It was tough deciding the best things to spend the precious weekend on but nonetheless here are our picks for the weekend - music, workshops and exhibitons.
1. Mosaic Music Festival 2014
This last instalment of Mosaic Music Festival kicks off on Friday and will run through two weekends, coming to its grand close on 16 March. It will celebrate its 10th year with a spectacular line-up for 10 days of non-stop concerts by musicians from all over the world. Highlights for this weekend are hellogoodbye, Caspian and Ólafur Arnalds. Also don't miss out on non-ticketed performances by local and regional bands at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre and the Esplanade Concourse!

2. International Women's Day
On 8 March every year, we celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women, past, present and future. Dedicated to this day in Singapore are many initiatives and events to celebrate women and at Monday Flying, we think you must not miss out on any of these:
Aura: International Women's Day Edition at The Vault. Only ladies get to enjoy $8 lychee martinis all night!
AWARE Workshops at AWARE Training Institute. Join AWARE for a series of free workshops that share ideas for advocating women. These workshops, running from now till 31 March, will touch on gender equality, change-making and building an inclusive workplace environment for women. Of course, gentlemen are welcome as well. You may RSVP for workshops by dropping a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Names, Text & Trouble
As part of the Associate Artist Research Programme, artists Tania De Rozario and Loo Zihan will be showcasing their respective projects to date at this joint exhibition titled Names, Texts & Trouble. This exibition revolves around the history and documentation of specific events in Singapore’s art scene.

4. Baths Live in Singapore

He has two swell albums under his belt - of which his debut album Cerulean, was listed as the 21st best album of 2010 by The A.V. Club. His second album Obsidian then took for a darker sound and subject.
