This week has been a rather music-centric one, what with Canadian band Sum 41’s gig yesterday and, tomorrow, Foo Fighters’ first Singapore show in more than 20 years. If you still haven’t gotten your tickets to their performance at the Sports Hub, you can do so here.

Perhaps the current most talked-about music news, however, is regarding popular singer-songwriter Taylor Swift’s new single Look What You Made Me Do, which dropped today. The edgy tune is a marked departure from Swift’s previous pop hits, and a huge contrast to her early roots as a country singer. While we aren’t a hundred percent sold on the song — for now — we have to admit that this reinvented, grittier image is a rather interesting development.

Other things to do this weekend include catching the Fedora prize-winning Le Syndrome Ian dance performance (which is part of the ongoing Singapore International Festival of the Arts), visiting the Singapore Night Festival before it closes tomorrow, and watching local musical Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress before it ends on Sunday. If you’re still short on ideas, scroll down for our recommendations in this week’s The Cheat Sheet.
