Shanghai Nights returns for New Year's Eve at Portland's historic Bossanova Ballroom with an exciting lineup assembled from leftcoast all-star musicians, including Portland-based saxman Devin Phillips and Seattle's McTuff Trio, ambient indie artist, Stephanie Schneiderman (Dirty Martini, Voices For Silent Disasters), and rising-star guitarman, Scott Law, who will be joined by former Tough Mama bandmates "Mighty" Dave Pellicciaro (Jackmormons) and Dale Fanning (Living Daylights), with Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple, BRAD) on bass. The night culminates with a STRING CHEESE INCIDENT REMIX SET, from genre-bending Colorado-based DJ/producer, DJ Harry, who will be joined by the Motet's Jans Ingber on percussion.
Portland was once considered one of the most dangerous ports in the world, earning the moniker “Forbidden City of the West” for the sordid, illicit deeds that were carried out on the edge of the Willamette. This year's 3rd Annual Shanghai Nights — "The New World's Forbidden City" — calls up that dark past with an imaginative mix of hot performance art, diverse live music, and dance at the newly remodeled Bossanova Ballroom. From the moment you walk into the Bossanova, you feel the refined ambiance of a classic, turn-of-the-century social club infused with the energy of a hip, urban lounge, incorporating the elegant, art-deco stylings of an original, old-world Freemason's Hall into a 21st century nightclub.
Count on surprise guests, creative merriment, and live dancing from Tana the Tattooed Lady, tribal nouveau dancer NagaSita and more! With a diverse and exciting lineup this year, Shanghai Nights has got it all.
