Spooky music. Spine-chilling decor. Creepy drinks. Awesome prizes on offer for the best dressed. It’s that time of year for ghoulish get-ups, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Once again, That’s Shanghai is hosting a hell of a bash, as we join forces with Xouk in Sinar Mas Plaza on Saturday, October 29.

Pre-order tickets are:

  • 1 Ticket = RMB140

  • 2 Tickets = RMB260

  • 5 Tickets = RMB600

So gather your squad together and enjoy great discounts.

Each ticket includes entry to all of the above freaky fun and five F&B tickets, which can be exchanged for mixed drinks, beer, soft drinks and food.

Last year, people rocked up in full costume, dancing on tables well into the wee hours of the morning to old school hip hop and classic tunes from throughout the decades, from the 80s all the way to 2020.

Here's a video of how it all went down:

War of the Worlds @ Inferno


On the night of October 30, 1938, Orson Welles and his Mercury Theater On The Air invaded the airwaves with a tale of paranoia, violence and existential dread that captivated audiences like few other broadcasts in American media history.

It told a tale from the previous century, HG Wells's War of the Worlds, but cleverly adapted its setting and story to fit the contemporaneous audience.

It's aided by the voice work of Welles himself (two years before he became the filmmaker of Citizen Kane and other classics) as well as music from Bernard Herrmann (future composer of similarly classic themes for Psycho and The Twilight Zone), and perhaps especially by an audience on edge from being in an unsettling time.

Eighty-four years to the date, and with all three of those elements just as alive today as ever, this Sunday, October 30 at Shanghai metal bar Inferno, TouJAM presents a listening party of this audio drama.

Beyond that, host DJ BO will present a brief talk about the project, and – for the first time ever – present live a Chinese script adaptation and sample of a recording of the work into Mandarin Chinese.

The original, of course, reportedly lead to listeners to run into the streets, panicked beyond belief. Will it still have the same effect? Find out yourself, this Sunday, Halloween eve, at Inferno.

Oh, and it is free entrance!

Sun Oct 30, from 8pm; Free.
