Sep 18: Melanie C

This one is a bit out of leftfield, but former Spice Girl and sporty human Melanie C is dropping into Le Baron this Wednesday for an appearance. We’re going to be brutally honest and say that Mel C’s Eurodisco inspired solo tracks far exceeded anything else the other spicers made after breaking up (sorry, Emma Bunton). No shorts, no flip flops and, phenomenally, no cover charge. 

Sep 18, 9pm; no cover. Le Baron. See event listing


Sep 20: Nobody Wants to Dance

In need of an indie music fix this weekend? This is absolutely the gig for you. With post punkers Berlin Fog joining up with the likes of legends of the game, The Big Wave, and Bai Zhishan (approximately White Paper Fan) which includes former members of AV Okubo, this should be an excellent gig. 

Sep 20, 8.30pm; RMB150 presale, RMB180 door. Modern Sky Lab. See event listing. Tickets.

Relatively new hardcore band Kizu have been followed by a cloud of hype since they formed back in 2017. With just a few singles in the bag, the interestingly attired Japanese group have made a big impression. Catch them this weekend. 

Sep 21, 7pm; RMB300 presale. Bandai Namco Shanghai Base. See event listing. Tickets

Internationally renowned Australian stand-up comedian Steve Hughes is coming to Shanghai! Hughes tells it like it is – confronting, alarming and always hilarious. The convict wizard with worldly insights into the bleeding obvious comes armed with more issues than an occupy movement. The inimitable ex-heavy metal drummer has been burning up the international circuit for the past 10 years, he has toured throughout Europe, Australia, USA, Canada and New Zealand to rave reviews and mutinous laughter.

Sep 21, 9pm; RMB180 pre sale, RMB200 at the door. Shanghai Comedy Bunker. See event listing. Tickets


Sep 22: Alter. Roof Garden Party ft. Wolfram (DFA/Public Possession)
