VIDEO: Nightvisions Chengdu 成都夜视

In New Zealand, where most shops close at 5pm, nightlife has become a word that points us in the general direction of bars, pubs, restaurants, clubs, clickable events and house parties. Booze, basically. 

In Chengdu, the city lights up after dark. In a second-tier city of over 14 million people, nightlife is everyone’s game.

From the leisurely throngs of elderly dancers that flock to the streets at 8pm each night, to the hubbub of activity surrounding neon-lit river bridges and strobe-lit stages.

Featuring music from Chengdu-based Lanzhou boys, Gajin.

Lyrics 歌词:《当代青年》

生在红旗下
生活方式不一样
如今社会如此复杂
但都依然坚强的走在大道上。。。
当代青年 你们是社会的栋梁
确实想不通
城里面的娃娃们
怎么男人变成女人
女人变成老爷们
女人变成老爷们。。。
当代青年 你们是社会的栋梁
当代青年你们咋老?
这是咋咋咋老 社会真的变了
没钱没房子没车子
媳妇子也说不哈哎
这是咋咋咋老 社会真的变了
我的家人们已经老去
我还是这个怂样子哎。。。
这是咋咋咋咋咋老 当代青年
