Don’t put on your party hats; no, leave those stupid little things at home. This is the weekend is all about Halloween and ghoulish costumes. Kicking things off tonight is the STD (great inspiration when designing your costumes) Halloween bash. Locals Banana Monkey and the Drop Kicks will be joined by Xian based 24-hour Party People… the icing on the cake being Misfits cover band, Horror Business. Nothing goes better with ghouls’n’ghosts than a little Misfits music. If you aren’t into Halloween but still want the live music then check out didgeridoo master Phil Conyngham bringing his talent to the crowds (hopefully) at Live Bar. SKO, new school punkers from Beijing will be playing over at Yuyintang.
Saturday things start to get even wickeder with the Lab hosting a Halloween party at 4Live featuring beats from the Lab Dj’s and Pharaoh (but of course, everyone knows where the most kickass Halloween party is going to be!). While Chaos, a German film group will host a surreal film and live music interactive show at Yuyintang. Also worth checking out is chill, Lonely China Day from Beijing, who earlier this year played at the SX/SW festival in the USA and will be gracing Shanghai with back to back performances, Saturday at Live bar and Sunday at 4Live. So get off your ass, stitch together some kinda costume and head out. The great thing about Halloween parties is that you can get pissed out of your mind, make an ass of yourself, and be secure in the knowledge that your identity was hidden under 3 layers of latex and paint.
