The sweet succubus, the darkest of creatures, that has slain many a man. How metal thou are! Inferno has revived the ritual of pleasing the succubi, by offering them the blood of Dionysus every Thursday in a sacred two for one covenant. That’s two for one on wine for ladies every Thursday.

Shanghai's livest '90s R&B party returns for another dose of new Jack swing and hip hop soul for the dancefloor. Kevin Maxim and SHAKE's six-piece band take it back to back in the day with the music of Ginuwine, Soul For Real, BBD, and many more. Dress Code: House Party vs. Hype Williams videos.

Moulin Rouge. The roaring '20s of old Shanghai. Dream Of The Red Chamber, Cao Xueqin’s masterpiece, one of China's four great classical novels. These are the swirling and smoky realms that inspire the one you will step into at The Pearl. Twenty-four cast members, spectacular dance numbers, classic and contemporary musical hits, and close-up interactive theater are all on hand to tease your senses.

Flyer courtesy of promoter

The monthly club night for civilized barbarians. BARBARISM is an escape for those who work hard all week and need to experience rawness and real emotions. Expect a fog of new hip hop, club trax, forgotten classics, familiar vocals in strange new contexts, and songs you never knew you needed. Not suitable for viewers under 18.

Oct 18, 10pm; no cover. Le Baron. See event listing

Oct 18: Say Yes x San Tai Zi: Foodman

Foodman creates music that defies categorizations. There are traces of almost every electronic music genre, from juke, footwork, ambient, house, techno and noise in his music, but those elements are dissected and morphed together then driven to extremes. The noisy technicolor of these diverse musical collages is borne out of his experiments (or accidents) and has titillated, confused and enchanted music obsessives far and wide.

Oct 18, 10pm; RMB80 presale, RMB100 door. All Club. See event listing. Tickets

Oct 18: Don Club Grand Opening

Don Club is created by the folks behind L’Atelier and offers a dark, dramatic and intimate atmosphere to spend unforgettable evenings. Mingle on the dancefloor and dance the night away to beats produced by their guest DJ. 

Oct 18, 10pm; RMB100. Don Club. See event listing. RSVP: 

Oct 19: Hodge

Flyer courtesy of promoter

Bristol's finest returns! Making techno infused with the heavy bass of dubstep days, Hodge's music is the epitome of the UK city's adventurous dance music scene; its penchant for bass and genre experimentation is present throughout all the twists and turns of his discography. He's the type of producer who puts out dark and banging techno on Berceuse Heroique, before delivering a glittering, largely ambient record for No Corner a few months later. Martin is a chameleon, but he retains a signature handling of bass and melody.

Oct 19, 10pm; RMB50 before 11pm, RMB80 after. Elevator. See event listing

Oct 19: MasquerArt

Flyer courtesy of promoter

Feeling fancy this spooky season? Forgo your favorite dead presidents mask in favor of something a little more elegant this October. MasquerArt is back for its second year, taking place on October 19 at Fun Bar. 

Combining great food, live painting by artists Bonnie Guo and Alina Levyz, masks, music by DJ ALEPA¥ and dancers, MasquerArt aims to bring together curious, philosophical and creative minds. 

Oct 19, 5.30pm; RMB120-400. Fun Bar. See event listing. Tickets

Oct 19: ROY NG & $.KIV

Flyer courtesy of promoter

MVP Events and Electric Circus are teaming up to bring you VHS Memories. Join them from 10pm and pay tribute to the greatest hits from the ’80s and ’90s. DJ Roy NG with the support of DK S.Kiv will bring the best tunes for this special occasion to make it an unforgettable night. Snag your favorite socks and celebrate the most iconic decade ever!

Oct 19, 10pm; RMB100 incl. 1 drink. Electric Circus. See event listing

Oct 19: Broncho

Flyer courtesy of promoter

Founded in Norman, Oklahoma in 2010, Broncho’s garage rock music has appeared on TV shows like Girls and Santa Clarita Diet, as well as films like Vacation and the documentary Valley Uprising. Their 2018 release, Bad Behavior, has been described as being more pop-oriented than previous efforts. They've come a long way in their nine years of life, through a record label collapse and endless touring, eventually getting the recognition they deserved after the release of their second album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman, in 2014. 

Oct 19, 8.30pm; RMB150 presale, RMB180 door. Yuyintang Park. See event listing. Tickets
