next dark underground party – 2 December 2017
For our fourth and last party of 2017 we have some announcements to make. The horrible rumours are true. Our club venue for the past five years will be destroyed in the early days of 2018. Although this fills us with great sadness, we will, no, we must throw one last farewell party to the place we have been calling home for so long. We will build a feast such as De Blauwe Kater has never seen before. We will saturate the earth beneath it with our joy and sadness as to creep out everyone who will live or work there long after we leave.
We have prepared all kinds of special things for this edition, to make sure it will be a night to remember. First: this will be a mixed party with all the genres you can expect from a classic Bunkerleute. After the musical madness of last party, we bring you everything from gothic, electro, industrial, neofolk, wave and everything in between. Expect some classic club hits, undiscovered jewels and shiny new exciting music. A bit for everyone and then some.
Second, TWO PARTIES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE, oh my god what does that mean? Whoever goes to this party, can go to the Bunkerleute party after that – wherever that may be – FOR FREE. We just don’t want to make the transition alone so we weave together the last part of this phase with the beginning of the next cycle by inviting everyone who said goodbye with us to the next party to begin a new era, together.
Obviously we will offer a toast to express our gratitude for everything the venue gave to us, and took from us. But we are not going into detail about that.
So why is the place being torn down? We would like to tell you that the pure evil we summon with our dancing and chanting has hexed the entire neighbourhood, leaving the normal people with only one option: destroy everything but the truth is far sadder. A ruthless capitalist has bought the entire block and will be putting something new, shiny and obviously utterly boring in its stead. What Leuven needed was some more gentrification, apparently. But we will persist. While Leuven grows more upper-class, dull, expensive, normal, bland and grey; we will double our efforts to offer something off the beaten track, utterly black and exciting. Fuck all this nonsense.
Because of the intimate nature of this party, our resident dj’s The Darker Angel and CatacombKitten will be playing all night long, giving you the pure version of what Bunkerleute is and is supposed to be.
The party starts at 22h. It never ends before 5 o’clock. Sacrifice is 3,5 euros before 23h and 6 euros after 23h. Drinks are at prices far below anything else in this city.
Bunkerleute calls itself an underground party for a reason. First of all because of the music that we play but secondly because of the unique atmosphere at our parties, centering on mutual respect, tolerance, personal space, judgement free etc. We are a welcoming party though, if you have any questions, just ask us.
Bunkerleute supports and is supported by Maaikes Skin Art.
