Various venues, Fri 24 Oct
What better way to celebrate All Hallow's Eve than
dressing up, joining a flashmob and shuffling your way around the city

times, route and details of the after-party will be announced a couple of
days before the event.

TICT's roster of house DJs, including SSOSO, Jasmine Li, Ivan Barbero,
Theo-Man, Nasty Nate, The Uhhh, Klein Sanchez, and Love Bang. This is usually
one of the most packed and reliable parties in the city for Halloween so dig
out the face paint and the scary masks and head to the warehouse.
Yuyintang, Fri 31 Oct
Yuyintang's annual Halloween tribute concert returns with
Shanghai-based musicians performing covers all night. Members of Friend or Foe
and The Machinery of Other Skeletons combine to become Rage Against the
Machine, Xiaoxin Yiyi play as Blink 182, Girls Like Mystery do The Strokes and
Hello Money perform as Sublime.
Cirque le Soir, Oct 31 – Nov 1
150RMB includes one drink
Cirque Le Soir throw a typically extravagant weekend of Halloween parties with a dystopian future theme. Imagining the setting in 2800, they cheerily aim to present a post-apocalyptic universe filled with zombies, cannibals and surviving rebels where Cirque is confusingly cast as both 'the last rebel stronghold' and 'your worst nightmare'.
Whatever the theme, given the strength of its excellent oddball circus performers (giants and little people and fire eaters, oh my) Bund-side club Cirque Le Soir is likely to be a good bet for a nut-bar fancy dress bash, which is just what you want on Fright Night really.
