Will Beijing Go Gaga Over Dada?
Shanghai's Dada announced that they would be opening a new "Dada" bar on August 18 in Beijing's hip Gulou area
位于一楼的中心区域。DADA将在每周五和周六晚做DJ派对，其他晚上有时也做一些活动。我们将以北京本地中国音乐人和驻扎在北京的外国音乐人表演为主，这些活动都将是免费入场的。北京DADA是上海DADA在北京地区第一家分店。在过去的三年里，DADA成为了上海最受欢迎的酒吧之一。我们获得了多家杂志和媒体的最佳酒吧票选，包括英文杂志《City Weekend》和《时尚先生 Esquire》中文版。音乐上我们将侧重于地下电子音乐，可能不会有很多techno和house，而会带给大家bass music、dubstep、electro、reggae、trip hop、abstract hip hop、disco, indie rock、post punk、dark wave、global funk、soul, 以及需要带上效果器或乐器做现场表演的电子音乐。
As China's cultural heart & soul, Beijing has always drawn all nature of talent and knowhow from across the country and world. If you've made it in your hometown and your thirsting for more, no better place for the ultimate challenge. Like I say, if you can make it there,... Seems like Shanghai's Dada agrees, recently announcing that they would be opening a new "Dada" bar on August 18 in Beijing's hip Gulou area (206 Gulou Dongdajie, Building B, room 101 ground floor center). If you tell yourself "I know that place," it's because it's in the same loft courtyard which houses Temple Bar.
"We've been wanting to come to Beijing for a long time, and we finally found a location we like. We are excited to be a part of this city's music and nightlife scene, and also a part of the neighborhood community. We have been doing events at venues around Beijing since 2006, so we know the city's music and bar scene."
Dada will host DJ parties on Fridays and Saturdays as well as other nights of the week. While focused mainly on local and local-based talents and free entry, they also plan on hosting international guests, with a small door charge. Add to that weird movies on the big screen and various art/culture events planned during mid-week nights.
Musically, you can expect the more underground side of (mostly) electronic music -- less techno and house -- more bass music, dubstep, electro, reggae, trip hop, abstract hip hop, disco, indie rock, post punk, dark wave, global funk, soul, and live electronic music.
