Kaos: Art in the Underground

Kaos: Art in the Underground, persistently one of the coolest monthly creative events in Shanghai, is going down again on Friday July 30.

Purposefully reminiscent of basement shows in the organizer's art school college town, Kaos is hosted at C's, one of Shanghai's last and most reliable sources for grimy underground energy. Expect a fusion of local music with art, zines, poetry, fashion, tattoos, and everything DIY. You can see art, buy art, and even make art with your fellow Shanghai subcultures, or just rave the night away in one of the two dance floors they're opening up for the occasion. In accordance with their all-welcoming, all-included mission statement there are no vendor fees or cover charges. The acts will include Dj Skinny Brown, Dj Gargoyle Girlfriend, The Third Toe, Armada and Flip House. The vendors will include PLUSMINUS, Smoke Tattoo, Clara Non-profit DIY, Son of Salmon Press, BERTILO, MAZANG falafels and PPAR. Once again, that's Friday, July 30, doors open at 8 pm, totally free baby!

Venue: C's. 685 Dingxi Lu, near Yanan Xi Lu, Changning District / 定西路685号, 近延安西路

Metro: 15 minutes walk from West Yan'An Rd. subway station
