Young Cherie Ko seems to have boundless artistic energy. While still a member of Singapore's Obedient Wives Club, which was our first introduction to her, she now has launched Tomgirl. By my count, that is at least her fourth project (including OWC, others are Bored Spies and the now defunct Pastelpower). Tomgirl is a collaboration of Ko and Singapore/Australian musician Ted Dore.
I don't think there have been any live shows yet, but Tomgirl has released a video for their first song, "Darker Now". The noir shading of the video combines the attitude of Natural Born Killers with an angular, post punk version of early The Raveonettes. An entire album of good stuff is slated for September.
