200 kuai for a noname rapper that looks like a talking baozi?
If you have any interest in history or photography I highly recommend to check out the exhibition of Li Zhensheng which shows glimpses of the madness during the Cultural revolution. I've seen the pictures before many times and you can check them out on his website, but seeing them in big prints is another surreal experience again.
Also if you like 2step/garage & grime DJ Royal T has a nice selection that is unheard of in Chengdu.
Strawberry is not even trying, looks like they actively seek to self destroy their festival by holding it on a Monday & Tuesday after a public holiday without bothering to publish a line up.
Papa U-Gee @ Jah Bar looks promising. Anyone else going?
"It's October Holidays - how about we don't have hold any events for all the people who don't have to work so they can bore themselves to death?"
On a serious note check out Inti Santana from Cuba in the Little Bar.

This whack MC Fat Shady released a new music video in which he basically tells foreigners to fuck off in a most primitive, very aggressive manner (militant at the end).
He's been featured on state tv in the past, still relatively viral, and actually did also previously perform at Chengdu parties organized by foreigners.
A low IQ midget like this wouldn't just blast this out if he wouldn't feel strong social support. Is the economy going down that much that it's officially time for scapegoating again?
Even so the open hatred presented by this wannabe tuhao looks like a new quality, the song ends with gesture and sound of gun shots and him hitting the head of a "stupid foreigner" model with a baseball bat - you can't be more explicit in calling for militant brutal ISIS like violence.
Curious what your thoughts are
Either way be extra cautious these days
Now that the river bank construction is mostly concluded I'd suggest looking for apartments around Donghu/ East Lake and down the river South of Second Ring Road all the way to the High-techzone and Huayang. That is if you are looking for a place where you can relax daily in quiet green environment (at the river) or do running / biking.
The place for beer in Chengdu, and Hugo is constantly on trips abroad to source new beers. Actually sometimes I feel the offers are rotating a bit too fast for me to catch up. Anyways, feels good to see a well managed bar for once (ok, ok they could switch the tape they are playing every day).
This used to be the go to place for foreigners in the Zongbei area, food used to be solid, affordable, portions generous, and thanks to an English menu(!) it was voted best Sichuanese restaurant by the expat community in the past. The last couple of years however it followed the general trend of the industry and food quality went down a bit.
But the good news is after some renovation management seems to be back on top of things at least that's what we felt yesterday.
In fact the food preparation has been better than ever before, and Sichuanese cuisine can be so incredibly tasty if done well. And yes it was. I hope it stays that way. I know you can do it Yangyang.
