Shanghai to get a new livehouse

New live music venue opening at the end of September

Shanghai is to get a new live music venue with the opening of Shanhai (山海) Livehouse next month on Aomen Lu, a couple of blocks from the M50 art complex.

The livehouse is a new venture from Lezi (pictured above) who is the drummer in Sonnet, Top Floor Circus and Pinkberry, runs locally-based Zhulu Hefeng Records and was formerly a manager at the old MAO Livehouse. Due to open at the end of September, Shanhai will host 400-500 people – ‘bigger than YYT, smaller than MAO Livehouse’ according to our sources – and will occupy two floors. They're already booking shows for October so keep an eye on this website and the next issue of Time Out for more details.
