Hello Asia! headed along to Singapore to enjoy the annual K-Pop Night Out as part of Music Matters Live!. This year, the event focused less on K-Pop and more on the indie music coming out of the region, with electronic outfits IDIOTAPE and Glen Check shining at the event. And then there was Nine Piece Ska band Kingston Rudieska, who pushed through an early power outage to deliver a killer set. Photos by Johnny Au:

Hundreds of music fans - both locals and expats - came out for the event which saw over twenty Australian artists performing on two stages over ten hours at the Hoxton Bar and Grill in Shoreditch.
