Editor's Description
Last updated: August 28, 2013

Stalwart of the underground dance music scene, The Shelter provides a forum for both locally-based independent electronic artists and DJs, and new international alternative dance acts. A converted bomb shelter, the club is dark, sweaty, black, loud, and thumping. Virtually every single Shanghai independent promoter has a weekly or monthly party therein, and so music ranges on a given night from Reggae to IDM to Drum n Bass to Electro to Hip Hop. Drinks are cheap (for real cheap) and cover ranges from 10rmb to 50rmb depending on whose playing.

The freshest tunes in grime, garage, jackin' and LDN house. It's been a year since the start of Push and Pull, and to celebrate they're bringing Siesta down to the Shelter for a Thursday night UK garage rinse out. Residents Alta and Naaah on support. 20rmb to get in.
On Thu 24 at The Shelter
Special edition of the party by the cats behind the weekly Come Correct hip hop night. This is the official afterparty for the China B-Boy competition, so expect a lot of top-notch dancers from all over China. Music by T-Plus, Caution, D'Rocc, MC Jado, MC One Con, and the official DJ of the B-Boy competition DJ DSK playing a set with a live MPC routine. 40rmb to get in the door.
