Every month we distill the pick of the city’s upcoming events and serve them to you in our What’s Happening section. January will have US hip-hop royalty stopping by the MasterCard Center, a fast-rising Portland-based rock band making their way to Beijing for the first time while their Coloradan heavy metal compatriots look to thrash the capital, and the cream of the CBA crop will show their skills in the league’s marquee event.
