Before you do anything this weekend (omitting the perusal of this blog post, of course) make sure to buy your tickets for Metallica which go on sale via Damai.cn TODAY. While you’re at it, you might want to book yourselves in for Simian Mobile Disco’s DJ set next Friday at Arkham too.
From this Friday, some of you might be lucky enough to be work-free for the next 6 days for Dragon Boat Festival. According to the ultimate arbiter of truth, Wikipedia, there is absolutely no single straight answer to why we will celebrate 5/5 of the lunar calendar. But my favourite suggestion is that it’s a day to worship the Dragon King. So, here’s how you pay your respects.
As you may have read from the last midweek music blog post, LeSale is spinning the decks at KTV. Their music comprises lifeless house beats, gradual graduations, intersected with the odd jazzy lick and sounds seriously sexy. Special mention goes to Wanderlust performing at Arkham, Rainbow’s Birthday Weekend at the Mansion and the all new pansexual nu-disco party at 390.
One suggested reason behind Duanwu Festival is to raise awareness of good health, so do your bodies a favour by attending this seminar on the power of building and sustaining healthy habits. Kimberly Ashton will be addressing emotional and behavioural aspects of bad eating habits and how we get trapped in ruts in the first place. Afterwards, stage fans should go see The Lost Garden. Party people head down to Shiva Lounge, which will hosting resident Lola DJ this night till the early hours of the morning.
International extreme sports athletes will compete in BMX freestyle, aggressive in-line, skateboarding, freestyle motocross, and speed climbing for USD260,000 at the KIA World Extreme Games. It starts this Sunday and goes on for four days. Let the extreme games begin. Alternatively, gorge yourselves on free flow daiquiris and canapés from 15:00-17:00 at The Geisha. Finally, as if it needs mentioning, Windows Garage’s 14:00-20:00, 15RMB draft beer and wine happy hour will always be the staple solution for all sober-related boredoms which particularly applies to the statutory, state endorsed and downright farcical national holiday soon to come.
