So I'm visiting Beijing & Tokyo in July -- is anyone familiar with either of those cities? How do I plug into the music scenes there? Any advice?

travel guide to odd tokyo
http://www.harmful.org/homedespot/ne...ravelguide.htm

if you can make it there i much prefer the osaka/kyoto/kobe (kansai) region to tokyo. kansai has a much more lively music scene and local culture (in my very humble opinion)


--shouldn't this topic be moved to the non-sonics section?

I take it you mean it's 80p for a beer in China? It's damn in expensive in Japan as far as I know. Everywhere in eastern europe it's about that price for a pint....but beware...anywhere with beer that cheap means scores of pissed up brits!!

it's from a website called tokyo damage report.
the link is http://www.harmful.org/homedespot/ADIARY.htm
this site has some of the funniest blogging on japan by a foreigner i have ever read. sadly the guy who runs it is no longer living there, but you should check out the archives. good stuff.

I was in Beijing in summer of 2000.

it was damn great, cheap food and accomodation and very friendly people everywhere you look. anyway, I don't think there's much going on musically there.

word. i'm Chinese. Chinese-American. Why does Beijing not having an internationally visible music scene? Is the government there afraid their kids will have spiky hair and not do their homework? Why is Beijing way secluded and far from thought when it comes to US and European bands touring? How come nobody wants to set up a music market in China as well? Is it because of my parents generation who are completely insane because of going through the cultural revolution? Why do they put people in jails for being poets in China? How come my grandparents who are well off financially in their courtyard apartments in Beijing so anal retentive and not sweet and mild manngered like normal grandparents? Why is the death penalty so common in China? How come when I sometimes visit my grandparents in Beijing there is nothing to do in terms of going to shows because the government is run by dictators and crack down on every single rock and roll band because it is deemed obscene? Why is music dead in Beijing?
