Reykjavik nü-house legend won’t quit spinning deep, progressive trance until he’s paid. 80RMB

Ladies Night Tune Bar, Beijing (Wednesdays, till late)

The Beijing Players present… ‘Carry On, Nurse’ Polly Theatre (Weekdays, 8pm)
Critics said that a Chinese musical adaptation, set in a provincial AIDS ward, couldn’t – and shouldn’t – be done. This amateur expat production proves they were exactly right. 50-120RMB

Les Entrees, accompanied by Simply Tartan “Only M.E.” tour The Hutongster, Beijing (Tues 9, 8pm)
Les, who has battled back from a serious alcohol addiction he blames on M.E., famously supported The Krankies on the Stirling leg of their 1983 “Free Scotland” tour and is a previous recipient of the Sealink Ferries Most Dishevelled Live Act Award (1987). Tickets may seem pricey but, as Les himself quips, “I’m nae running a fooking charity. I’m promoting one – me. I mean – M.E.!” 250RMB
