It’s forecast to be raining this weekend. Sucks. No matter, one more weekend to see off the rainy May blues, and to welcome in the summer months.
Whittle away the hours from 12:00 to 23:00 with free flow wine for just 150RMB at Jovino. On the decks later that evening will be DJ Falcon, DJ Ellen Allien, and DJs Aly and Fila. Each with relative merits; DJ Falcon has been featured on Daft Punk’s most recent album, Random Access Memories (on ‘Contact’, above); DJs Aly and Fila have been listed as #20 DJs in DJ Mag Top 100 DJs 2012, and DJ Ellen Allien has been adequately dubbed the “Queen of Techno”. In other music events related news, Postiljonen will be featured in the Scandinavian Showcase.
For fewer trance-state head boppers and more fun loving party people, try Love Bang @ Dada, which promises a house party atmosphere in a club. Or, if you’re hankering to pull on your best New York Hype or Cuban Red fancy dress (yeah I have no idea either) head to the Cuban/New York Barcadi party @ The Apartment.
On both Friday and Saturday early evenings, Wali Collins will be performing at the Kung Fu Komedy Club, while The Old Shanghai Jazz Band has Saturday and Sunday covered. Find free alcohol at Studio Shanghai later on from 21:00-23:30. And choose between the Rainbow Danger Club gig at Yuyintang or the Gangsters and Triads Party at Choir Wine Bar, which actually used to be the old offices of the 19th Century opium importers Russell & Co.
Party from pm to am at TICT’s Sundaes Summer Rooftop Series or sample food from around the world and artwork from the local creative community at F.Y.E.S.T.A Aperitivo.
