What's Chengdu's best live music venue?

What's Chengdu's best live music venue?

It's got to be Little Bar 2, hasn't it? Great space and cheapish drinks, you can't go wrong. Shame the bathroom is way at the front, not ideal when you're bursting for a pee but don't fancy pushing your way through a crowd of sweaties. And the bands finish way too early, though it means you can catch a show at the weekend then head on out elsewhere.

I agree with you about the cheap beer and the toilet, but lets not forget the hemp house. As venues go its probably the best in Chengdu. The only problem is the price of beer, 20kuai (or what ever it is) for beer lao! Its good beer but the bottles are just too bleedin small. I remember the days when hemp house had 10kuai tsingtao.

20 kuai isn't expensive for a beer lao, I doubt you'll find a bar selling it cheaper than that anywhere in chengdu. I'm sure at panam/jellyfish it's 25.

Defo won't find it cheaper anywhere. Just the little bottles that's annoying.

It's nice to have the big bottle really good value option at the end of the month before pay-day comes along.

I'd agree with the above two being at the top of my list somewhere. Think the jah bar deserves a mention too venue wise, nice vibes, good people and inexpensive beer. The Thursday night jam sessions are the way forward :)

Oh Chengdu local bands.
Tonight is the band's three joint performances.
There Mengtai Qi, blue weekend, trees and color band,
They take the British style.
Do you like them?

xiong mao by miles and miles.

 

I was reliably informed that DJ Krush is coming to play in xiong mao early December.

 

Richie Hawtin in 2012 too

Hawtin in 2012, huh? That's one techno DJ who won't put me to sleep.

He might do it to himself though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=FUX4rdLqA_o

Xiong Mao gets my vote as well, good system, good space, interesting line-ups. wish I was still in the 'du to enjoy it.
