Chinese metal bands turn up the volume as live venues reopen

Li Shun, Shun Zi and Wang Bao of the Chinese folk-metal band Dream Spirit perform at the Wukesong Mao livehouse in Beijing, China, February 24, 2019. Six months of coronavirus shutdowns kept the lights off in Beijing\u0027s underground music venues, but live venues in Beijing were recently allowed to reopen at 50 percent capacity, as life in China increasingly returns to normal.
