Baroeg is one of those increasingly rare jewels: a fairly large venue that features independent live bands. Amidst the techno-mania that has hit Europe and the US in the past decade, live musicians and their fans sometimes get pushed aside. Places like Baroeg, though underground and somewhat seedy, give them a place to be seen and heard. While it's absolutely crucial that you check the schedule before showing up here, once in a while some fairly interesting acts are featured. A last interesting note: This club is staffed by over thirty young volunteers, many of them learning technical jobs such as lighting or sound. The place also rents rehearsal space at minimal rates during the day.
