Three Events for New Year's Week

Here are three events for the first week of January


Welcome to the first week of 2018, we’re glad to have you here. While the rest of the city gets its bearings, get back into the party swing of things later on in the week with three events. On Friday, have your pick of Beijing rock that combines Chinese folk music, with trip-hop, and other experimental sounds. Or if it’s something more base heavy that you’re after, head on over to Dada for the first dubstep party of the year. On Saturday, catch touring band Mando Diao at Bandai Namco.
