Here is a piece of good news (for all you live music lovers out there) to help quench your thirst while you wait out the events drought that inevitably hits during every Chinese New Year. End of March there is a promising new live music venue (no cover bands!) opening up. Unfortunately, we have been sworn to secrecy on location (hint: former sports bar somewhere on Huaihai Road) but can tell you it will hold 250 comfortably (Yuyintang holds around 100) and will offer cheap drinks and entrance fees.
Also, something you should be drooling about is You Say Party! We Say Die! those always entertaining dance punkers, from Vancouver, that are rumored to be coming to Shanghai sometime in April. They will be hitting town around the same time as fellow Cannuck, Dandi Wind.
February might be bleak but it seems that as the weather heats up, so do the gigs.
