"Shanghai is a destination, a metropolis, a noun. But personally, we prefer Shanghai as a verb. Back in the day of saloons and scurvy, ship captains used to drug / kidnap their sailing crew. When there was a shortage of seamen, any able-bodied fellow who wandered into the wrong saloon, or drank with the wrong companion, could wake up with a mysterious hangover onboard a ship headed to the Far East...stuck on the high seas for the next 7-10 months. The practice was known as "Shanghaiing”

Fast forward to 2009: Just when the CMJ marathon has lower Manhattan in a death grip, MeanRed and Good Peoples are sneaking off to Chinatown, celebrating the best underground sounds in a dim sum restaurant under the Manhattan Bridge. We're kidnapping the music you thought you knew, kidnapping the expectations you may have had, and bringing the whole thing with us on a voyage to the place where East meets Best.

Join us for a three day music marathon at 88 Palace -- good music, gold dragons, red wallpaper, pretty people, pork buns. We are passing dim sum dishes throughout the night, serving up drink specials when you need it most, and putting on the best and brightest of NYC.
