Jan 10: Dim Sum Disco presents San Soda
After a last minute cancellation in May, due to a thunderstorm preventing him from making a timely departure, San Soda returns to China with his sweet fizzy house vibes. He will be rocking Migas this Saturday with the Dim Sum Disco crew. This sharp as hell producer and DJ knows how to warp the masses into slaves of the beat, and is currently ascending the ranks of DJ notoriety, showcasing his skills on famous stages the world over.

Jan 10: The Syndicate Presents: Doc Scott
UK Drum n’ Bass legend Doc Scott will be kicking off the Syndicate’s first month of bass heavy programming with a boom. As a true veteran of both DnB & Jungle scenes, he’s traversed the world pushing these genres forward to new depths with his intricate electronic warbles and earth shattering mixes. Now he’s ready to conquer Beijing with support from The Syndicate.

All Month: Slow Boat Month-Long Drinking Contest
Get over to the Slow Boat Taproom for a month-long drinking contest. Don’t worry, it isn’t continuous and you’re not expected to drink non-stop for the entire month. How it works is every brew you order up at the Dongsi Ba Tiao taproom will make you eligible for their weekly prize giveaway, or grand prize, which is free french fries for an entire year. Not too shabby! Just fill out their ballot after ordering up a pint of liquid gold and put it in the fishbowl. Every week they will select one winner. But there’s a catch, you must be present to claim their deliciously meaty and yeasty prizes. The grand prize, all you can eat fries for the year, will be awarded to whoever has the most stamps on their Slow Boat Anniversary stamp card on January 31. Check out the events listing here for more details.

Jan 10: Comedy Club China Presents: Wine & Standup Comedy Buffet
Join the funny boys and girls of Comedy Club China for an evening of gluttonous food conception and laughter at Cheers Gulou. Hosted by Paul Creasy, you can expect all of the funny people from CCC doing their best to make you loose your cookies with over two hours of raunchy commentaries on life in Beijing. It all gets started at 8pm, and the RMB 50 entry also gets you a free glass of wine to wash it all down.
