Sunday is one of those dreadful post-holiday workdays again. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your hopes on having a nice Saturday night. Ben Huang is back at spinning techno at the Shelter, and Windows Too tries hard to make you wake up half blind and/or with a nice headache. If those prospects seem unattractive to you, you may want to refer to our marvellous Friday night schedule with Hiroshi Watanabe and Jasmine Li. And if that’s still not enough, head over to our calendar for more.
Hiroshi Watanabe @ LOLA
Japanese trance and techno DJ, producer and photographer par excellence, also known as Kaito. doors open at 8pm, so it looks like it’s gonna be a long long night. But Mr. Watanabe is a keeper, so that’s a good thing.
50RMB // 8pm // LOLA // 570 Yongjia Lu, Bldg. 4, near Yueyang Lu (永嘉路570号4号楼, 近岳阳路)
Jasmine Li @ Shiva
Shanghai’s great progressive house and techno mistress Jasmine Li is back at Shiva. That means this is a good place to spend the (late) Friday night. She never disappoints.
Free // 11pm // Shiva Lounge // 47 Yongfu Lu, near Fuxing Lu (永福路47号, 近复兴路)
Deck-FX @ The Mansion
DJ Resinate celebrates his birthday with a DnB and dubstep overload together with Roo, Deadlock, Q-Kraft, Torettez and Siesta.
Free // 10pm // The Mansion // B18, 2388 Hongqiao Lu, near Hongjing Lu (虹桥路2388号B18, 近虹井路)
Reboot @ Windows Too
Isn’t that great? Windows Too launch their new reboot party with electro pop, and everyone brave on the dancefloor can get free
methanol shots. Yum.
Windows Too // 2/F, City Plaza, 1618 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Huashan Lu (南京西路1618号 久光百货X楼, 近华山路)
Bassment @ The Shelter
Bassment is back, this time with the one and only Ben Huang, Shanghai’s techno icon. Shanghai Ultra, Dave K and Steven Lorenz are in, too.
30RMB // 10pm // The Shelter // No. 5 Yongfu Lu, near Fuxing Xi Lu (永福路5号, 近复兴西路)
Open Mic @ Adam’s Lounge
So now Adam’s has an open mic night, too. I can’t imagine that you’re expected to jam here with other musicians, but apparently you’re encouraged to contribute to noise pollution together with other vocal talents.
Free // 9pm // Adam’s // Lane 5-2, 448 Xinhua Lu, near Dingxi Lu (新华路448弄5号2座, 近定西路)
