Q: Hard Rock in Guangzhou?

Guys, I listen almot exclusively to heavy metal and hard rock. Naturally, living in China is a bit shit, with all the treacle-covered sugar-drenched factory pop that oozes out of every media pore.
So I'm looking for something a bit harder on the Guangzhou scene.
Does anybody know of any rock/metal bars or clubs, or anywhere that has live music (i.e. NOT jazz, folk, rap or pop!!)
Thanks

Guangzhou is actually quite renowned for its rock scene, so it's not surprising then that you'll find a number of good live music venues there. C:Union and T:Union are two of the most popular but they do tend to put on quite a few folk gigs and softer music, as well as rock. Iron Age Space probably leans towards heavier rock more but it's a bit of a trek to get to all the way in the University City. Another staple is Tekkwun Livehouse. Hooley's Irish Bar has some regular bands and can get quite lively so that could be for you.

there's metal/ black metal scene here as well I go to 191 Space... It's smokey, small and cramped and always way to full... Black, Speed, Death, Grind, straight up metal, bands that are local, Taiwan, HK, Australia, U.S, hell from everywhere... Let me know if you want to go sometime I'm also a Metal guy.

Looks like this topic was spammed by D***** again. 

 

As as its been necro'd then I'd also mention SD Livehouse for metal/thrash in Guangzhou. Also Fei Luvehouse in Redtory but not 100% sure it's still open.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
