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.

Up
coming

[Cancelled...cosmic ballet, man] Excellent Thursday night booking of warped Hawaiian hip hop / bass music producer Mr Carmack. Just slammin beats that sound like hip hop instrumentals getting pulled apart by a dimensional rip. Check out some tunes on his Bandcamp if you're not familiar. Cover TBA. Starts at 10pm and goes late. Recommended.
On Thu 30 at The Shelter
 

On
going

Weekly hip hop night that's been running for three years down in an old bomb shelter on Yongfu Lu. Music policy is old school and underground hip hop. Definitely no new top 40 hip hop (you'll have to go to Explicit Fridays to find that). Starts at 10pm, goes late. Usually picks up around midnight. No cover.
Every Wed at The Shelter
