the bangers: capital’s 2nd anniversary with dj sura
Of course, we got one for the party people — you think we’re gonna sleep on you guys? If you missed the opening of Marquee Singapore, fret not — they’re not the only ones with the biggest parties in town.
For Capital’s 2nd Anniversary, the 21-and-above nightclub is turning into a chamber of fantasies and desires with its Edgeplay – The Pleasure Parlour lineup; if you got a kink for vamps in leather, enigmatic red lights and more of those where they come from, this is your time.
In fact, coupling this event on the 20th of April is DJ Sura, a hot name in Asia’s EDM realm. With collaborators like Leanon EDM, Asia’s famous EDM company under her belt, DJ Sura is an artist on the fast lane to popularity with her hip-hop and EDM genres.
The club’s also putting up a dress code of ‘lace and leather best’ — are you down, or are you too vanilla sweet?
