Live music venues in Lisbon, a guide - Part One

Lisbon Record Shops has ceased to have a regular list of live music concerts - but this guide will help YOU, the music-loving Lisbon visitor, to find great live music during your stay in our wonderful city.

First of all, you can check Viral Agenda for a list of what's happening.

If you just want to know where to go out and see some good live music, here's a small list of great venues where you won't be disappointed:

- Galeria Zé dos Bois (in Bairro Alto): The mecca of alternative music in Lisbon, in the middle of Bairro Alto. Here you'll find the cutting edge of music, from rock to hip hop without forgetting electronica, folk or jazz, and sometimes everything at once. No rules, just incredible music.
-> Location of the venue

- Sabotage Club (near Cais do Sodré): A sweaty cave in Cais do Sodré, in which you can always count for great rock gigs. Be it heavy or psychedelic, it's guaranteed to be great.
-> Location of the venue

- B.Leza (near Cais do Sodré): If you're a fan of the African smooth sounds, this is the place for you. Here you'll find the cream of Portuguese-speaking African artists, serving hot rhythms to dance throughout the night.
-> Location of the venue

- Musicbox (near Cais do Sodré): Also on the vibrant Cais do Sodré, this venue offers a very different array of live music gigs, but is known for its clubbing sessions at late hours, always betting on the new fringes of danceable electronica, sometimes with shades of hip hop or world music.
-> Location of the venue

- RCA Club (near Alvalade): If metal is your thing, you won't be disappointed. Here you'll find the heavier stuff, be it death, black, doom or plain good ol' heavy metal. From AOR to the most recent skullcrushing tendencies, RCA is a place you can call home.
-> Location of the venue

- Casa Independente (near Intendente): A marvellous spot to snack, chill with friends and listen to great music, live and otherwise.
-> Location of the venue

Stay tuned for a second part of this guide in a near future!

Books & Records Megastore

For decades one of the nastiest neighbourhoods in downtown Lisbon, Intendente has become one of the trendiest. In the centre of it all, a square with the name of the respective Provincial Governor (in portuguese: Intendente), where everything happens - even finding records for sale!


Sponsored by Largo Residencies, the Books & Records Megastore may not look that mega from the outside, but inside you'll find a trove of goodies! A joint venture of sorts formed by Retrox and Vintage Warehouse - who supply the books - and A Record A Day (previously from Crew Hassan) - who supplies the records, this Megastore is guaranteed to fuel your digging instincts.
Focusing on the musical side of things, there's a lot to be discovered here: from classic rock to african world music, from post-punk to metal, you'll find a bit of everything. Most of the its selection is on used vinyl, but there are also new records, and some CDs as well, with a great selection of Portuguese rarities.

So if you are coming to Intendente to stroll around, have a snack or feel the sunshine on your face, don't forget to take a piece of culture from this friendly Megastore!
