I just remember being there a few years ago on one of the hottest recorded 
summer days in Berlin's history for a oversold, super packed wall to wall 
punk rock sweat fest. It was a great place to check out but one of the worst 
saunas I've ever been in.  Fun never the less to see the infamous place TG 
and tons of other greats have played.  Pretty cool for a traveling American.

Someday a real rain will come and wipe this scum off the streets.- Travis
