RIVERSIDE MUSIC CAFE

Since opening in 2000, the Riverside Music Cafe has become one of the more notable live houses to showcase diversely talented local artists. Owned and operated by music aficionado Geddy Lin, the live house auditions indie bands as well as a variety of performers to ensure the quality of each night's show. Concertgoers descend the street level stairs to a classy basement cafe with bar to the left, and a room with tables leading to a stage at the far end. Mondays have traditionally been open jams while the venue features established pop vocalists like Ciacia and rock bands such as BackQuarter as well as up-and-coming indie groups every other night of the week. Riverside is also know for catering to those seeking some of the island's notable aboriginal folk, jazz, blues and acoustic musicians. Over the years the Riverside family has grown to become an institution for dedicated musicians expanding to include a recording studio, music school and most recently a second live house located in central Taipei.
