C Rock

Music in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

This pocket-sized shop is the best place in the area to pick up albums produced by Chinese artists. The guy who runs it speaks enough English to help you decide and is happy to let you listen to an album that takes your fancy. There’s music of all types from all over China (as well as some international stuff), but the focus is on local rock and indie bands and folk music. CDs cost between ¥35 and ¥100.
