Taichung - where is it happening?

I’m going to spend the weekend after next, i.e. after Spring Scream, in Taichung. Where can I go there to see live bands or some sprinkling of the seemingly VERY alive Taichung music scene? :sunglasses:
And can anybody recommend good restaurants (foreign or local, doesn’t matter) and friendly bars? :wink:

Taichung has lost it’s happening appeal over the past few years. There is a thread with reference to this.
Most foreign bands play at 89k on Chung-Ming S. Rd
Other foreign hangouts are Londoner, Fm, 2 Tigers, Chubby’s and La Bodega.
Good restaurants…well there’s kind of a few. Depends what you want, really.
Would suggest to pick up one of the local magazines such as Compass, The Voice etc. They give a good restaurant round up of where to go and who serves what.

What do you want to eat? And how much do you want to pay for the food?
