If you wanna know how important the one and only Altes Wettbüro has been for Dresden’s club culture you only have to get a glimpse of the list that Micha Schuhman brought for the UV Funk radio show celebrating the tenth anniversary of Altes Wettbüro. It’s a densely-written document you’ll find names of artists from all kinds of genres on it. In the last ten years the full-time booker Micha Schuhmann had a large share of making the club to what it is today. Starting as a bar on the border of Dresden’s nightclub district Neustadt it soon became also a small-sized club with a loyal crowd and a family-like crew. Almost any Uncanny Valley artist has hosted club nights or played here. But AWB, Wetti, Wetterbüro or whatever you wanna call it isn’t only a venue for parties but also for concerts, discussion forums or workshops. Recently the house has also distinguished itself with an excellent and seasonal cuisine. And let’s not forget the Mediterranean, Ping Pong approved garden plus an additional small clubhouse you can also rent for birthday parties or the likes. One of the best places to stay in Dresden’s summer!

There is a lot of speculation about what will happen to the club in the next months. We’ll see where this path will lead. But for now, Micha Schuhmann and UV Funk host Philipp looked back on ten years of excitement and inspiration happening at a place called Altes Wettbüro.

UV Funk is a radio show which is broadcasted every third Friday from 9:30 pm to 11:00 pm on Dresden based community radio station coloRadio. Radio listeners in Dresden can tune in to the program on 98,3 or 99,4 MHz. Any other listeners can recall it here. The show is hosted by Philipp Demankowski. It’s all about stories, interviews and tracks out of the world of Cosmic Electronic Music. But watch out! Mostly it’s in German. 

The show was aired on 16th April 2015
