That's Shanghai takes a look at the best events of the week.

Oct 11: Dé Dé Mouse

We got mashups and an upbeat sound from this 'celestial disco' playing artist. This'll be a good one for dancing, and his VJ stuff is worth YouTubing.

Oct 11, 8.30pm, RMB150 pre sale, RMB180 door. Mao Livehouse, see event listing.

Oct 11-21: STOMP

STOMP combines dance, comedy and music into a theatrical whirlwind you’ll never forget. This production uses matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more to create the energizing beats in this full-of-life stage show.

Oct 11-21, RMB180-780, 7.30pm. ET Space, see event listingbuy tickets.

Oct 12: Loev Bagn Sports Lesure Launching Party

Flyer courtesy of Ink Sight.

Another Love Bang party. Or is it Loev Bagn? Will there be clothes for sale? A new shirt released? We're not totally sure, but we're pumped for another night of good music.

Oct 12, 9pm, RMB60. Elevator, see event listing.

Oct 12: Fantasna

Flyer courtesy of Parlour.

Chilean producer and DJ, Fantasna, will be taking over the home of Shanghai's disco pizza oven this weekend. Parlour's putting on a free show in honor of Columbus Day - but you know, the right way...? We're excited to have this Boiler Room headliner back in the city.

Oct 12, 9pm, no cover. Parlour, see event listing.

Oct 12: Hispanidad Day Party

Flyer courtesy of Azul.

Sangria, music and much food will be available for this celebration. Entry tickets include 10 food and drink tickets, so it's a good way to sample some of the Latin world’s best fare.

Oct 12, 6pm, RMB150 early bird, RMB180 door. Azul, see event listing.

Oct 13: Bruno Major

North London native Bruno Major releases songs in real time as they’re finished. Having recently toured with Sam Smith, he’s now headlining his own show of soulful, alternative R&B music.

Oct 13: Martin Mor

Funny-man Martin Mor is coming to Shanghai Comedy Club for a stand-up set that'll have you in stiches. This former circus performer has traveled the world calling out audience members everywhere he goes. Also his beard is insane.

Oct 13, 9pm, RMB120-200. Cages Bar and Sports, see event listingbuy tickets.

Oct 13: International Cassette Store Day

Flyer courtesy of the promoter.

Ah, the cassette tape. We honor its image and lack of convenience with the fifth annual calabration of the humble format. There'll be a daytime market at Subland, and a super show at Yuyintang that night. There'll be shoegaze, hip hop, dubstep and punk. Yeah!

Oct 13, 8.30pm, RMB80 pre sale, RMB100 door. Yuyintang, see event listing.

Oct 13-21: Glengarry Glen Ross

David Mamet's iconic play is back in Shanghai with a new production from DreamWeaver. Their 2014 run was met with nothing but praise from publications across the city, so we have high hopes for this re-vamp. They will be dedicated to the late Paul Collins, whose performance in the original show is still talked about to this day.

Oct 13-21, RMB180 early bird, RMB200 pre sale, RMB 220 door, 7pm and 8pm. Sasha's, see event listingbuy tickets.

Oct 13: Mika Shimauchi Exhibition Opening

The opening of this exhibit showcases works that are impressive, crude, dark and comical. They catalogue the artist's grappling with existential dread in a range of mediums that are worth a gander.

Oct 13 - Nov 11, no entry fee. Shun Art Gallery, see event listing.

Oct 14: Three with Schnellertollermeier

Flyer courtesy of the promoter.

Experimental-avant-psych-minimal rock. From Switzerland. Just gonna leave it at that.
