This Sunday Elefante's hosting another one of its 12 hour marathons of excess. They do these a few times a year, usually coinciding the change of the seasons. For the arrival of autumn they're throwing their Second Annual Latin American Food Festival.

For the whole day, they're setting up 30 food and drink stations spread throughout the dining room and their patio. From noon to midnight they'll be serving Latin standards like empanadas, ceviche, tacos, lomo saltado and drinks like pisco sours.

Hey this sounds good - Walking Dead x Capture The Flag. This Sunday morning, running club RunnersHai have a "Zombie Run," where humans try to find an antidote for a killer virus in the park while dozens of zombies try to snatch flags off their belt. Maps to the antidote are provided.

So, Resident Evil in a Jiading park. Meeting point is the Jiading Xincheng Metro Station, which would probably be a safe haven in the event of a real zombie attack because it's way up on Line 11, far from civilization. Zombies should arrive at 10am, humans at 11am. Makeup provided for zombies. Tickets are 100rmb, available on the RunnersHai website. Goes from 10am–2pm.



Plenty of free wine to be had tonight at the wine store/lounge/bistro Just Grapes on Dagu Lu. They've got a wine tasting from 7–9.30pm tonight, where they're pouring up selections from the south of France. We just confirmed that you can drink as much as you like until they run out. Do your worst. Info here.

Lately it feels like there's more festivals than Chinese people. Well, here's another one. From Oct 18-26, World Music Shanghai takes over New Hongqiao Central Park, Dongping National Forest Park and The Mixing Room. Music festival in the park, not a bad idea; and a few of the names sound quite good.

For talent, it's a mixed bag of folk, rock, and crazy. This year's headliner is Germany-based Mongolian singer Urna, who has one of the most iconic Asian voices in the world music stage. Jambinai, the Korean instrumental-rock group who just destroyed at House of Vans last Sunday will perform again at New Hongqiao Central Park on October 18. That's definitely a must-see. They combine traditional Korean instruments with post-rock, getting much love at SXSW this year and even being compared with Godspeed! by NPR. Check their video for "Time Of Extinction" for a taste.... Read on

As we reported last week, Avicii bailed on Shanghai. Again. Welp, here's who's replacing the EDMz overlord...


Yes, Ke$ha – the 21st Century poet behind such lyrics as:

"Whoa oh, there's a party at a rich dude's house...
I threw up in the closet and I don't care,
Cause we're young and we're broke,
And I can't find my coat."

Ke$ha. Is she an enigma? A symptom of the decline of the American empire? ...a dragon? Stay tuned to find out. We'll have tickets for Storm on our website tomorrow.

I have been wanting to go for a while. What better time than when my father is here who used to live in Luleburgaz near Istanbul and speaks Turkish. Biggest mistake I ever made. Idiot. Booking for 8.45pm but when I arrive the polite Turkish lady (aka Sybil from Fawlty Towers) tells me I booked 9.00pm and please wait at the bar. Marvellous. Already there are 10 people waiting to be seated and one guy arguing with her about corkage fees. Get to the bar, no seats, no bar staff, just chaos.
