Next dark underground party - FRIDAY 12 May 2023
A party on a Friday. And just in time before the heat season, when the sun scorches the planet surface and all you goths are driven underground, we thought it would be a good idea to gather once more. For the new people: yes, Bunkerleute is a gothic party to put it _very_ simple. It's been doing that since the year 2000 and apparently only a global pandemic kept us from partying. Goth is a very black but very big umbrella however: many different subgenres are played, everyone gets to enjoy their favorite genre in a relaxing but dark atmosphere. The scene is old, old as balls, but the music keeps evolving, building on tradition but also innovating. We honor the classics but keep going because of the new and exciting stuff. People from all ages, walks of life, etc frequent Bunkerleute with a humbling amount of respect for one another, which convinces us to keep this going.
A word on dj's for the night..
THE DARKER ANGEL, a Bunkerleute resident : Founding member of Bunkerleute, this angelic being plays the broad spectrum from gothic to wave to industrial, electro and neofolk. Timeless classics, hidden, forbidden and forgotten tunes, freshly dug up or still wet from coming into existence. He plays both the music you want and the music you need.
CATACOMBKITTEN, a Bunkerleute resident : Does the same yet somehow completely different.. Her gothic has more bats, her wave is more purple, her industrial less toxic, her electro powered by eldritch energies and her neofolk keeps summoning demons we have to find vessels for every single party. Wow, yeah, no problem, it's not like I have somewhere to be.
NORMKOMPATIBEL, ex-Bunkerleute, ex-Gala Nocturna : suddenly stopped dj-ing eight years ago, retreated to the Brussels sewer system in a huge, wet cocoon suspended in a deep and forgotten part of the underground, hidden away from its natural predators. Recently it started pulsating, like a heartbeat that beats too fast, oozing something foul, growing to unnatural proportions. We thought the best reaction is to book it a set behind the turntables, this once.
ACHTUNG! Did we already mention the party is on a Friday? We recently discovered this previously unknown day of the week and we thought we'd try it. It gives you an extra weekend day to well, recuperate from whatever you are going to do at the party. The party starts at 22h. It never ends before 5 o’clock. That is a guarantee.
Sacrifice is 3,5€ before 23h, 6€ between 23h and 2h and 3€ after 2h. Be early, party cheap.
In spite of the name, the venue is not a café but a well-equipped club with a sound & light system worthy of your music.
Bunkerleute calls itself an underground party for a reason. First of all because of the music we play but secondly because of the unique atmosphere at our parties, centering on mutual respect, tolerance, personal space, judgement free etc. If at any time you feel this is not the case, come and talk to us. We are a welcoming party though, if you have any questions, just ask us. Please be kind to each other and to the staff. We do these parties since AD 2000, it's definitely not just a phase. Every cent we receive during parties will be invested in concerts. More on that subject in the future, if any.
