Scroll through endless entries of PR infested listings, “events” and drinks deals, or CHOOSE TO READ PENCIL THIS IN. It is a choice, but once you make the right choice, you will be helpless but to agree to my every truth for I, Shanghaiist Minister of Propaganda, have officially declared war on boredom and drudgery, (active from days Monday to Thursday). Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for all the events listed here and more!
Head down to Muya Bar on Monday to watch the worst of the B-movies! Expect awful editing, terrible acting and catastrophic scripts which will feature (inhale)… kung fu, college jocks, camp trips, blood boobs, ninjas, deformed sharks, cyclops, wolves, hicks with rabies, machetes, more boobs, average violence and bad guys. On Tuesday comes a band that stole the heart of every female teenager who grew up in the 90s – the BACKSTREET BOYS are performing in Shanghai. They will be playing old classics like, ‘I Want It That Way’ and presenting new material from their first release since 2005. Steve Liang, founder and CEO of FIELDS China will be presenting an helpful talk on food safety in China on Wednesday. You will learn about current food safety issues, organic food, healthy diets, great local food, tips on perfecting fresh grocery shopping and necessary information for protecting yourself from the H7N9 virus. Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist, Nick Zinner will be performing a DJ set at 390 on Thursday. If you like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, or Head Wound City, I would suggest you go. Also, all the cool kids are going. What you’re not going? Pshh, check out this guy… What a NARK. FINAL TIP: book ahead for Wali Collins @ Kungfukomedy.
