    Dear Attack-K, as said in the FIRST line of my post, I'm Italian, not Chinese, that's why I write in English. Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Fernando, what exactly do you want to do to change the Beijing music scene?

    Maybe you emphasise the "guanxi" and "guru" thing too much. From the view of a foreigner, maybe you got your point but i wont generalize.

    There are only a few real live bars and clus in Beijing and most owners/managers of these sure knows the diffrence between metal and folk.

    sure, Time Out/The Beijinger etc. are not exactly music magazines as such but there are also other references if you need to know about local music, such as blogs, websites etc.

    generally, i guess, it will help a lot to speak at least some Chinese to get involved in the Beijing music scene.

    all the best for what you do.
