My Encounters with Chengdu Music Live Shows

Authors: Go Chengdu


I’m Renata Mirkova, from the Czech Republic. Crazy about music, I’m a vegan foodie, and a big fan of baked sweets. I first came to Chengdu in 2012, and is now pursuing a master's degree at Sichuan University.
Though I have never learned how to play any musical instrument, I'm always a big fan of music and enjoy watching various musical performances every now and again. During my childhood in the Czech Republic, my first encounter with music was in a punk live show. As I grew up, my favorite remains to be hardcore punk music.
I came to Chengdu in 2012 with little knowledge about the city. I searched on the Internet for my bar options in Chengdu. I was worried at first till I alighted on the name of "Little Bar", a place I had to check out. Soon in September that year, I stepped into the Little Bar for the first time, along with my friends, to see a gig of "Mr. Sea Turtle".
We were late since we had got lost on the way, and the show already kicked off. A huge crowd was dancing around the stage to the loud music, as if the bar was a boiling pot. People were so excited and fired up in this burning room. However, later to my surprise, the crowd broke up and left just minutes after the gig was over. Why didn't they stay around for a little while longer to have some chats over drinks? My friends and I were still excited about the performance and wanted to hang out more to meet other music fans in Chengdu, as was the usual drill back in the Czech Republic.
So far, numerous live houses have sprung up in Chengdu. And my favorite ones are Littler Bar and Good Morning. Besides, I am also a frequent patron of the riverside Jah Bar and Steam Barnear Wuhou Memorial Temple. These two usually hold small events, reminding me of the places I frequented back in my hometown. Although punk music live shows are not many in Chengdu, my yearning for music can still be satisfied here. And trust me, everyone can find their favorite music and live house in the city.
