At the end of January next year, Tape will officially open with a two-day celebration of the Danish underground scene.
It warms our hearts, when we open our inbox to find news regarding new initiatives in Aarhus. And maybe this one, in particular, really pleased us. Like we’ve been waiting for these news.
Local independent players have joined forces, and now they’re creating a new venue in town: Tape. Its location is anything but new, though, as Mejlgade 53 used to be the home of Musikcaféen and, in recent times, Backstage. The forces behind Tape aren’t new either, as names like both Flux and Raums Eins are in on it.
The goal is to make Tape the gathering point for the independent event makers, who’ve been longing for a new place to set up concerts in town. Tape will be that place! The place where you can hear punk, eksperimental electronic, club shows or curated shows from this countrys independent labels, or whatever – it could be anything!
The opening event will take place on the 29th of January, and it will be two days with 10 bands from Danish underground. They’ve said, that these ten bands will be a solid indicator for what’s in store at Tape, but won’t represent the profile as a whole.
We’ll definitely be there at the end of January, welcoming and saluting this brilliant new initiative.
Here’s some 5-year old (shaky) footage of Fossils performing at Musikcaféen, because why not.
