Flyer courtesy of promoter

One final Love Bang before Dada Shanghai becomes a group home for ghosts and street cats! Love Bang started here on Xingfu Lu in 2010 and we finish just like we started: house-party-in-the-club vibes all nite and a crudely-drawn, highly-emotional flyer. Music: sounds to make you fall off the ground and land on the ceiling. Club trax? Hip hop? Everything? Depends on the moon!
