Kaos: Art in the Underground

Finished Sat May 22, 2021 , 8pm
685 Dingxi Lu, near Yanan Xi Lu


Monthly DIY-fest Kaos is back again this Saturday. It’s shaping up to be another explosion of underground art energy, this time focused on the small task of saving the goddamn world. Eco-conscious artists will be selling upcycled and second-hand goods, with some booths raising funds for pet adoption agencies. Music will be psychedelic alt-folk, alt-rock, psy-rock, prog-psych, goth-house; basically all things hyphenated. As the evening is sponsored by Doc Martens, who have thus far merely been unofficial sponsors of every scene-adjacent event for the last 50 years, they’re giving away prizes for the collage and arts contest (all supplies provided by the venue and open to everyone), with winners announced at midnight. If that still isn’t enough for you, in addition to the sketchbooks, zines, poetry, and live tattoos, they’ll have drink deals throughout the night. To use their words, it’s a “festival-like vibe in a war bunker.” It all kicks off at 8pm at, where else, C’s. And of course, there’s no cover.
