maybe not that Madonna Mania but definitely we on the Madonna Mania – or in general in nightlife.
At some point I came to Berlin – almost exclusively because of the nightlife.
The first visits to Berlin and especially the first visit back then to the Irrenhouse opened up a new world for me, that magically attracted me and then ultimately drove me to move.
The latter still exist and still exist in Schwuz. However, that itself is no longer this strange basement hole on Mehringdamm but today a sterile building with a charm somewhere between bunker and large disco.
The Irrenhouse is still there too – but also no longer in the basement of the birthday club but in the much larger music and peace. Both have lost their charm for me – but maybe I just grew out of it.
In any case, there was a queer party in Music and Peace that weekend and we decided, as to stop by. That in front of the gate, that the long line of non-existent but possible guests regulates one, was a lock, I couldn't see it like that and overcame it with swift feet….
Not knowing, but then found out from the doorman, that the lockdown had a valid reason and that was the people – including me – before things, that could fall from the roof to protect…
I took that and thought: “ja ja red du man”
But then it showed, that there is something to it, because later came a lot of police time, quite a bit of fire brigade with handcart to bring something important to the part of the roof.
….in fact, I just got away with my life.
But in war and peace it showed, that we not only “escaped”, but also came too early, because the shop was empty when we came and only filled slowly and we were bored and awful… at least with good music.
When it slowly got full, However, we had to make our way to the Schwuz to Madonnamania, because Sheila really wanted to see Epiphany Get Paid and her Lady Gaga performance.
Okay Schwuz also… In contrast to the previous party, there was a queue here and in today's Schwuz the time-honored law applies:
Snakes do not count in fumbling
overruled for some unknown reason. How could that happen?? Standing in front of the club in the cold… Not mine. I don't have to have that. But why did we want to go in?.
To Stella Destroy to see, and Biggy Blonde and Kaey and to hear Madonna and other divas…. Some things just never change. probably they were already there as the first Madonnamania before 15 Years started 🙂
No matter, we were there mainly for the performances… and especially for those of Epiphany. Lady Gaga sang herself… Great looking – but not very inspiring. Sung a little thin. But that may also be because of that, that she later sang a Madonna Gaga medley with Kaey and Kaey showed a lot more voice…
Anyway, the performances were over and so was our lust… The evening was boring, or we're too old, or both … 🙂
