Since When Are There You? Briefly Imagine
The Bassy Club dedicated to the musical underground from the outset before 1969. We started at the turn of the Millennium as an Association for the conservation and promotion of the rock ´ n ´ roll culture in Berlin. The warehouses of a ball bearings factory were our Clubhouse. Every weekend we evening just opened the doors and look who comes, in addition to the few Club members. After it has spread in the scene that one, damn well could dance besides the spontaneous concerts which took place with us, to the old vinyl discs of amateur djs. In the winter, you could breathe real location fire romance by the burning oil barrel in the backyard. We had to face the Club number with growing number of guests on more professional feet. So we went in 2006 a house number, in our current premises.
