2 December Das Racist

Rolling Stone says they’re ‘the Beastie Boys for the tea party generation’; their fans call them Das Racist and their mothers prefer Victor, Himanshu and Ashok. However you choose to refer to them, since taking the rap scene by storm last year, Das Racist use of humour and unconventional styles has made them a hot commodity.

Price: RMB 50. 10pm. The Shelter. 5 Yongfu Lu, near Fuxing Lu. 6437 0400


 3 December Sander van Doorn

Dutch trance DJ Sander van Doorn continues Shanghai club land’s fall theme of euphoric and uplifting music. Recently ranked No 12 in DJ Mag’s somewhat equivocal Top 100 poll, Sander brings his Dusk to Doorn party series to the confines of the hugely popular Richbaby. Dutch trance – Chinese-style!

Price: TBC. 10pm. Richbaby. 138 Huaihai Lu, near Pu’an Lu. 6336 0000

4 December The Field

Split-Works brings out Swedish producer The Field for a night of deep techno. While most of his Stockholm contemporaries focus on commercial electro, Axel Willner creates sample-based ambient techno – think post-rock with synthesisers – with a combination of live instrumentation and software developed a decade ago.

Price: RMB 100. 9.30pm. Yuyintang.851 Kaixuan Lu, near Yan’an Xi Lu. 5237 8662

 5 December Ershou Meigui

For the past nine years, five transvestites known as Ershou Meigui (Second-hand Rose) have imbued their unique brand of folk music into Beijing’s alternative scene. Mixing rock with comedic er ren zhuan, with a liberal smattering of naughty language, these boys…er…girls show off a different side of China.

Price: RMB 80 (pre-sale), RMB 100 (at door). 9pm. MAO Livehouse. 570 Huaihai Xi Lu, near Hongqiao Lu. 5258 9999
