Live Bar is back from the dead
Live Bar, formerly housed in an old chemical factory up in Yangpu district, closed back in May due to the continuing gentrification of Kunming Lu and its surrounding areas. I first wrote about the closure here and then wrote up the last gig here. For a while, Live Bar 696 (itself closed and then reopened in the north of the city) took on the mantle of breeding ground for Shanghai's student bands and more experimental shows, but now the original Live Bar is back.
The new location is at 800 Guoshun Dong Lu, near the Wujiaochang area of town (close to where 2046 is if you know the record shop). That should see them tap into the considerable student population up there, being a few minutes walk from Fudan's main campus. I haven't been up there to check it out yet and there haven't actually been any shows there yet, but I'll keep an eye out for any forthcoming gig information...
