They'll be taking to the streets in Tokyo this weekend as the city sees what might be its anti-nuclear demonstrations to date, to coincide with the three month anniversary of 3/11. But if you aren't in the mood for protesting, never fear: you could always head to Kohei Nawa's spectacular new exhibition, catch a spot of body painting, or celebrate St. Patrick's Day three months late...

Party with some pole-dancers...
Taiko, pole-dancing and tech house? The latest edition of Innocence features Japanese drummer Tkowko, pole queen Ruka and a burlesque show by Lady Chic – and it's resident DJ Crazyneo's birthday, too. Read more

Hail the Queen of the Night...
Lilith's first anniversary bash at Eleven features long-form sets by Poland's Catz'n Dogz and Three, the eclectic New York-based DJ who headlined the first edition of the party this time last year. Read more
