The month of June continues to play host to many exciting events surrounding visual arts, music, and food. As usual, it’s our business to sift through and find you the most worthwhile events in a week. Here they are:
Nelly, Still Fly
Nelly Live in Bangkok 2017
A major flashblack to the early 2000s is happening on Tuesday night. For one night only, American rapper Nelly will be performing in Bangkok at GMM Live House. Tickets are still on sale at 1,500 baht for regular, 2,500 baht for VIP and 45,000 for VVIP, which will get you in the same breathing space as the Hot in Herre singer. Don’t miss the chance to party to other R&B “classics” such as Dilemma, Just A Dream, Body on Me, and Gone.

Film and Cuts
Apéro Ciné: Miss Sloane
Political entertainment and cold cuts - an odd but enjoyable combination. If you’re not headed to the Nelly concert, the Alliance française is screening politcal thriller Miss Sloane, starring Jessica Chartain as a high profile DC lobbyist, at 6pm. While you watch riveting drama unravel on the screen, enjoy a delicious platter of cold cuts and cheese, and wine if you’d like – of course you would. Tickets are sold as a pair package for 500 baht, which includes the charcuterie. Wine is an additional 100 baht per glass.
