New live music venues opening

The Taipei Times today reports on three new live music venues opening in Taipei and Kaohsiung this weekend. Lovers of live music have ever more choices of places to go.

The first and the biggest is Legacy located in the Huashan Culture Park (華山文化園區) in Taipei City. They have a great line up of bands over the next few weeks starting with Chinese rock legend Cui Jian (崔健) tonight and Wu Bai (伍佰) & China Blue and Yo La Tengo later in the month. It seems that rather than competing directly with smaller venues like The Wall, Legacy will have more well known acts with higher ticket prices. David Chen has the full story in the Taipei Times.

A smaller venue dedicated to jazz is also opening in Taipei. Roxy Jazz is a small basement club in Heping East Road. Again David Chen has the word in the Taipei Times. The south of Taiwan is not forgotten either. Brickyard is a new venue opening in Kaohsiung. Alita Rickards has more details.
