Funk Fever at Migas tonight will include tunes from DJs Bite-Size Buddha, Perman, and Wesley, a maovember backdrop where you can dress up in wigs, fake mustaches and more and take photos, and the “Triple Soul Special” — a whisky or tequila shot, an optional pickle juice shot and a Heineken chaser — at 50 yuan, with all proceeds to maovember.

The party kicks off at 10 PM and the idea is to announce the drink special at midnight and 1 AM. Also, a percentage of the 50 yuan door fee will go to maovember. Funky!

I asked Migas’ music director Jeff Hinson about a few things funky and / or mustache-y:

What are the three best funk songs for the discerning mustache wearer?

I Can’t Go For That” by Hall & Oates — and check out John Oates proper smooth mustache. James Brown’s “Give It Up or Turn It Loose“, for the wilder mustache grower. Finally, Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up“, for a bit of both worlds.

Who on the Migas staff has the best mustache-growing potential, and why?

Fellow Funk Fever founder Perman. He’s half-Persian, half-German, but all mustache baby!

What kind of experience can first-time Funk Fever attendees expect?

At nearly six years of age, Funk Fever is a Beijing institution, full of good vibes, with the best of Motown, Funk, Disco, Reggae and Classic Hip Hop. This is the party that mixes fun with nostalgia.
