Machine translated text. Show original   Edit translation

When we took over the Caveau in 2001 and turned it into a rock, indie and alternative club, most of the Mainz scene declared us totally crazy. The Lindenbaum and the term had just gone down, "Rock is dead" was universally valid and techno was coming big.

But we wanted to rock! Following our example, the Bruxelles in Dublin, we created a concept away from the mainstream and beyond the beautiful, bright glittering world of the club and disco scene. We play all kinds of rock we can think of, from 50s rock n roll to current hardcore we try to accommodate everything (sometimes even everything in one evening!). Of course, every rock club has a decent live program. Almost every Thursday concerts take place on our stage. But we are also happy to make our stage available for theatre and readings.

Als wir im Jahr 2001 das Caveau übernahmen und daraus einen Rock,-Indie und Alternativeclub machten erklärte uns der größte Teil der Mainzer Szene für total verrückt. Der Lindenbaum und das Terminus waren gerade untergegangen, „Rock ist tot“ war allgemeingültig und der Techno groß im kommen.

Aber wir wollten rocken! Nach unserem Vorbild, dem Bruxelles in Dublin bastelten wir uns ein Konzept abseits des Mainstreams und jenseits der schönen, hellen Glitzerwelt der sehen-und-gesehen-werden Club- und Discoszene. Wir spielen alle Arten von Rock die uns einfallen, von 50er Rock n Roll bis zu aktuellem Hardcore versuchen wir alles unterzubringen (manchmal sogar alles an einem Abend!). Zu jedem Rockclub gehört natürlich ein anständiges Liveprogramm. Fast jeden Donnerstag finden auf unserer Bühne (...) Show moreKonzerte statt. Aber auch für Theater und Lesungen stellen wir unsere Bühne gerne zur Verfügung. Show less
