Pencil This In is all the things you’d want to do this Monday through Thursday. We have flamenco guitar action for you at JZ Lounge, a double feature of the amazing RoboCop and the not so amazing RoboCop 2 at Dada, a new (and at the moment probably the only) ladies night for lesbians, plus improv comedy with the PRC. And no, China isn’t more humorous than usual, that’s the comedy troop at Malone’s on former hooker hideout Tongren Lu. Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for more!
Flamenco Night @ JZ Lounge
The Kuzo Duo plays live Flamenco music every Monday night.
Free // 9pm// JZ Lounge // 22-23/F, Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel, 159 South Henan Lu, near Fuyou Lu (河南南路159号22-23楼, 近福佑路)
Sub-Cinema: RoboCop 1&2 @ DADA
Admittedly, RoboCop sounds cheesy, reads like a cheesy idea and – surprise – he looks cheesy. However, scandal-experienced director Paul Verhoeven’s gory Sci-Fi flic about a policeman turned into a half cyborg half human monstrosity that goes on a scum killing spree is a surprisingly smart satire and a must see classic. They’re showing a double feature of part one and two of the trilogy. Like so many sequels, RC2 is kinda meh. And in case you wonder why they don’t show RC3, well that’s a piece of shit and you have to get up early for work tomorrow.
Free // Doors at 8pm, movie at 9pm // Dada // No. 115 Xingfu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu (幸福路115号, 近法华镇路)
Ladies Night @ 390
Ladies night for the ladies who don’t wanna get hammered with free drinks just to expose themselves to the avances of dudes who wanna
exchange pleasantries get it on. In other words, girls who like girls aka lalas get lucky here. Two for one on wine and beer all night long, so it’s perfect to share drinks with your date.
Free // 9pm // 390 // No. 390 Panyu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu (番禺路390号, 法华镇路)
People’s Republic of Comedy @ Malone’s
PRC’s improv comedy show features two special guests tonight: Shanghai-based musician Xiao Zhong from Pairs will share the stage with the PRC crew next week as a guest monologist. Visiting improv comedian Mike Staffa, from Japan’s premier improv group Pirates of Tokyo Bay, also joins the madness. 30RMB drink specials all night.
50RMB // 9pm // Malone’s, 3/F, 255 Tongren Lu, near Nanjing Xi Lu (铜仁路255号, 近南京西路)
