Starting Feb 10: Pop-It at Centro 

We love a good cocktail. And Centro, a longtime hotel-bar favorite, makes them well. But there’s one thing that pairs better with gin than tonic: live music. This month, Centro welcomes high-energy band Pop-It. Starting February 10, the seven-member group will rock the popular bar every night. Hailing from Montreal, Pop-It have performed live across North America, as well as in France, Morocco and the UAE. These shows feature head-spinning variety. Pop-It’s members are true jack-of-all-trades musicians, and are comfortable playing everything from pop and R&B to Latin dance tunes. And best yet – they’re playing nearly every night at Centro’s prime CBD address. We can hardly imagine a better way to after-work.

Feb 11: Slow Pulse Presents Jazz Fusion Night


Slow Pulse is all about bringing original tunes to its experimental jazz fusion series. And at their "Neutral Space – The Fugue & Conversation" event at DDC on Saturday you can expect just that. The lineup includes Xuefeng & Friends, See Saw Quartet (which fuses jazz with tradition Chinese music), YAN and ANXT. Rest assured that you’re going to hear some excellent tunes – ranging from live psychedelic jazz to jazz-infused beats – at this event.

Sat Feb 11, 8.30pm-12.30am. RMB40 (presale) / RMB50 (door); DDC.

Feb 11: Modernsky Lab National Security Fan Fest


Modernsky Lab is hosting the eighth annual National Security Fan Fest on Saturday. The lineup includes ubckydubg Xuan Xuan, Labor Glory, Li Shi and more. Punk and rock fans will like this one. There will be a beer drinking contest too.

Sat Feb 11, 7pm-midnight. RMB100 (presale)/RMB120 (once presale tickets are gone); ModernSky Lab.

Feb 12: Cologne Philharmonic Orchestra 

One of Europe’s leading concert orchestras, the Cologne Philharmonic brings a diverse classical program to Beijing that includes works by Beethoven and Austrian composer Gustav Mahler. Whether you’re into religious composers or prefer those secular classics, this German posse has got you covered. Led by the indefatigable François-Gervais Roth, the performance promises to bring Beijing’s National Center for the Performing Arts to life. For one night only.

Sun Feb 12; RMB169-752; NCPA, 2 West Chang'an Jie, Xicheng 西城区西长安街2号

Feb 14: Candy Monster

Nothing to do on Valentine’s Day? Well there’s no point wallowing in sorrow and loneliness, so get yourself down to School Bar for a special Rooster Valentines party (that makes sense, right?). Returning to the School stage is alt-rock four-piece Candy Monster, who launched their EP Monster Party at the venue in 2014. Three other bands will play to help light up this often dark day in the calendar.

Tue Feb 14; Price TBD, School Bar.

Feb 14: Jody Watley @ Blue Note Beijing


This is a Valentine's Day show with a different flavor. Grammy Award-winning artist Jody Watley will be gracing the stage at Blue Note Beijing on the big day. This show has all the makings of a perfect date night. Just saying. And if you're looking for other Valentine's Day events in Beijing, check out our complete guide.

Tues Feb 14, 8pm. From RMB520; Blue Note Beijing.
