That's right, it's out! Go get it at all the usual cool places!
Here's the breakdown real quick:
Cold Cave is playing Nuts this Friday (May 3rd), with The Maples to support. If you can't go on Friday, check out party punk band The On Fires the day before, supporting band's the same...
Trivia Night is now on Tuesdays and it's at Cliff's! Fans of Da Rasta's Pub Quiz will hopefully flock to this one from now on...
The Flea Market is back this month (May 20th - location to be determined), so bring your old crap and see if anyone wants it. If you need some old crap to redecorate, then you should come too!
Mr. Chelonian (海龟先生) is our featured band this month, come check out their rock and reggae stylings at Nuts on the 25th!
Top party this month: JCC from Guangzhou is doing her farewell tour, stopping by Nuts on the 31st!
That's right, big week indeed and it starts today!
Monday the 15th is the beginning of the end for Da Rasta and they're putting together a flea market of sorts, with folks coming to buy and sell their stuff. It will also be a chance for you to leave with some Rasta history, as the owners are letting go of everything, breathing a sigh of relief and moving on to other adventures...
Da Rasta was the first foreign-owned dive bar in Chongqing and will be closing after more than two years of operation. To leave y'all with good memories, they'll be doing one last Movie Night on Tuesday (we're told Sexy & Wacky will be the theme), one last Trivia Night on Thursday and one last blowout on Saturday the 20th, starting a few minutes after 4pm. BBQ as usual, big kegs of beer and a buttload of baijiu, come say bye in style to the little bar that could...
Now if we say “big week”, we can't be just talking about Rasta right? Right you are!
Thursday is also the Chongqing station of Russian reggae star Steppa Style's China tour. We are told by people in the know that Steppa's not only a singer but also a kickass reggae DJ, he will be bringing stuff like this to Nuts Club. Check it.
Other than the lack of advertising savvyness of the promoters, we know very little about the Water Rouge show that's opening on Thursday at Hongyadong's Bayu Theater, but it will be around long enough for us to have a look later. Nevertheless, if you're into the high arts rather than the arts high, check out this all-European troupe perform “water dancing”...
Shanghai DJ/producer NiChiFanLeMei on Friday, read here.
And some rock-infused hip hop on saturday with CMCB, more details later...
Lazy entry over. Big week yo.
So anyone who has ever lived in a normal city, with normal bars, has undoubtedly come across or at least heard of a pub quiz at some point in their life. And now, on its seemingly never ending quest for normalcy, Chongqing has one as well. The green fellow featured in our previous 'pic. of the week' has teamed up with 'The Singapore' for CQ's first ever(and hopefully soon to be weekly) pub quiz. to quoute the green man(who's name is Yancy by the way);
For anyone not familiar with the idea of a Pub Quiz, friends and
knowledgeable strangers gather together in small teams, pitting their
trivia skills against one another while generally having a pretty good
time. We'll have 50 questions (as well as a few other means of getting
points) each week on a wide variety of topics. Despite our being in
China, questions and answers will be delivered in English.
Bring yourselves, your arsenal of useless knowledge and any friends
you can drag along -- It's free and should be a great time!
The Singapore has not only offered up the location for the quiz, but have also generously donated gift certificates to be given away as prizes for the winners.
