Venue in Cologne changed

We have received the information that the club “Werkstatt” in Cologne id going to be demolished, unfortunately before our show should have been taking place. Our agency and the local promoter have tried hard to find an equal location on the same date, but everything was already booked out, even bigger venues. Yesterday they’ve managed to book Yuca Club for our show. This club is smaller, but so it’s going to be quite cozy and that’s definitely something special. So better get you ticket for this show soon, they will surely run short 😉
