We have finally made it, it’s weekend, and the long holidays are about to begin. Some of us might suffer from that dorky but all too common “we give you some days off just to ruin your weekend with an additional day of work” rule, but in the end there’s plenty of fun stuff for you to do on every single day. Happy holidays! Read on for the details. And if that’s still not enough, head over to our calendar for more.
Pervert Party @ Eden
Take out your whips, handcuffs, dongs (only the rubber ones!) and masks: Shanghai’s one-and-only pervert party has returned! The sluttier and sleazier the outfit, the better – being offbeat is what’s fun about this night. Join the chained inflatable lovedolls at Club Eden and meld with the craziness around you – nobody’s gonna judge you tonight. If you announce your coming here and dress up in the appropriate fashion, you get in for free before 12:30am.
Dresscode: black – kinky is king!
100RMB punishment at the door for chaste outfits // 10pm // 4/F, No. 760 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Shimen Er Lu (南京西路760号4楼， 近石门二路)
Charp & Skinny Babou @ LUNE
Lune never seems to fall short of providing reasons why to avoid the hurly-burly neighbour with the wooden stairs around the courner: Fans of techno and electro strike it lucky once again with Lune this Friday night, Charp and Skinny Babou on the DJ desk.
Free // 9pm // 4F, No. 218 Xinle Lu, cross Donghu Lu (新乐路218号, 东湖路路口)
Chinese Perspectives @ AroundSpace
No paper serves as the canvas for Zhang Xiangxi’s creative works, but old, disused TVs. Inside the cases, Zhang arranges three dimensional reconstructions of the two dimensional rooms in classical Chinese paintings that lack the linear perspective technique. With extreme attention to detail, Zhang manages to convert the classic and limited paper world into “reality”, or what we perceive it to be through TV screens. More info here.
Free // 11:30am-6:30pm // AroundSpace Gallery // Room 408 294 Sichuan Zhong Lu near Jiujiang Lu (四川中路294号408室, 近九江路)

100RMB pre-sale, 150RMB door // 10pm // No. 428 Jiangning Lu, near Wuding Lu (江宁路428号1F, 近武定路)
Spelling Bee-Otch @ Inferno
Wanna prove that all those years of elementary school weren’t in vain? Head over to Shanghai’s metal and rock bar Inferno and score big at the Rock’n Roll spelling contest! Sign up here. San Miguel for 25RMB and Jägermeister shots for 20RMB are ready to help jog your memory.
10pm // No. 480 Yongjia Lu, near Yueyang Lu (永嘉路480号, 近岳阳路)
The Nine Ways To Die @ Naco Gallery
Today is your last chance to see the nine (not so pleasant) ways to die by French photo artist Ludovic Zuili before the exhibition closes. Zuili’s photos depict nine fictional murder scenes in motels. Sounds like an hommage to ‘Psycho’, and that’s what it looks like. No ‘CSI’ or ‘Silence of the Lambs’ style anatomizing of the victims, but fairly bloodless arrangements that leave the details of how it happened to your imagination. Check it out, book your next motel stay, and always keep in mind that there are so many ways the stay could end.
