Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’ ~Albert Einstein. We all have genius within us. Yet knowing you have a genius within doesn't make picking up a guitar or mic any easier. On the contrary, if we believe that "art" is for "artists" only, we live only as an observer and dreamer.


On Weds, Aug 30th evening, you'll hear how these artists found their way to let art into their lives. Unique stories of self-expression, we promise you’ll leave inspired to unleash your own genius! The evening will include an hour of open mic, 3 featured acts (bios below), followed by a lil time for impromptu performances, freestyle, and collaborations.


OPEN MIC - is closed, below is our lineup - including our first ever stand up comedy performance!


  1. Sheril A Bustaman - poetry

  2. Meninder Kaur - poetry

3) Minerva Deepu - comedy

4) Aizat - song/guitar

5) Farahin Zin - song/guitar


Join us for a shot of creative inspiration, for soulful conversations with old and new friends over coffee/drinks, and for a night that’ll inspire you to unleash your own genius. Come alone, or bring friends. Either way, you’ll meet a new crowd to mingle with! And as always, feel free to join the artists afterwards to freestyle and create fun music on the fly!

3) H.F. Badger / singer-songwriter


Straight from the burrows, H.F. Badger (alter-ego of singer-songwriter, Bob Ooi) is a bi-pedal creature that has zero physical resemblance to a Honey Badger. However, they both share two common traits - they both like to live alone (to an extent) and they’re notorious for their bad temperament. This particular (and rather peculiar) badger kept on digging through life’s struggles before he uttered these words - “Enough is enough”.

He crawled out of his deep, dark hole and went back to his first love, music. Drawing many musical influences in his life (including Dallas Green from City & Colour and Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty), HFB channeled his thoughts of his personal battles with love, life and religion through hill-billy, folk music that people seem to poorly categorise it as ‘hipster music’. Let HFB enthral you with his folk guitar playing, his smooth yet robust singing voice and the occasional yodelling.

Not written by,
H.F.B.
