All that plus 10rmb Dos Equis bottles and 10rmb Sol beer bottles, all night. Goes from 7pm–sunrise. Address here.

And hey, Arkham sees the return of talented young techno and dubstep producer Steven Lorenz. Think there's some tech house DJ headlining, too.

Ahead of next month’s flurry of art spectaculars (think Photo Shanghai, West Bund Art Fair, Art in the City and SHContemporary), a handful of galleries around town are offering a taster of what’s to come with openings, lectures and schmoozing aplenty this weekend.

Grandly opening today is Arario Gallery over on Tianping Lu. The group already boasts two spots in South Korea with the new Shanghai space marking a second China foray after a short-lived Beijing affair. With a focus on contemporary talents from Asia, their debut show comes courtesy of Indian artist Subodh Gupta. Known for his large scale installations comprising everyday objects – here it’s kitchen utensils – Gupta and Arario celebrate their Shanghai debuts this evening from 5pm through 7pm.

Hey some cool music and art shit is coming up on September 12–14. After stops in London and Brooklyn, Vans is bringing their "House of Vans" to Shanghai for a weekend of concerts and workshops at Arkham and Central Studios.

What we know so far is that screen-print/design wizards Idle Beats will host a screen print making workshop, photographer Tobin Yelland and zine maker Clide Woodside will host a DIY zine-making workshop, and photographer/filmmaker Angela Boatwright will do a documentary making workshop. Some skateboarding action going on as well.

On the music side of this, some big names are coming through. We'll give you the details on that and the ticketing info next Monday, but these are likely shows you won't want to miss. Here's the Saturday-morning cartoon lookin' teaser animation for all this right here.

COMMUNITY / AUG 28 / Share


Have you ever been to Demarcia? Yeah. I haven't either, but starting tomorrow, they're doing an apocalyptic free booze-fest for three days. Starting bright and early at 10am they're pouring free Tsingtao and whiskey and coke. And it goes on until midnight. For three days.

Why? Because why the fuck not?

Oh! And they're gonna have a DJ too! "Who?" we asked management. "Oh. It's not famous," they told us.

So yes, you read that correctly: 14 hours of free booze. For three days. That'll no doubt attract some quality clientele. For more details click here.

I'm picky about my Mexican. If you are, too, take a knee and be forewarned: TWO tortillas. TWO. You need TWO corn tortillas to make a proper taco, able to withstand the varied goodness inside. 30RMB for one taco, as a discounted special?! Okay, I didn't mention I'm also cheap. But still. Portions are really small and overpriced. That is not real cheese. ...is what I said to myself, and to my 'shrimp taco' (<- a bit generous, since I only found 2 shrimp, crowded by a lot of beans and strange cheese spooge). Service is horrendous. Bad Mexican saddens me, but the rudeness of the waitstaff wa [..read on]
