The facade is already one of Berlin's more atmospheric spots: a collection of metal grating and rotted wood plastered over with ancient rock 'n' roll posters, on a street that has seen more protests and rioting than most. SO36 is Berlin's CBGB: the place where German punk started, as well as the launch pad for much of the country's 1980s musical talent. Its glory eras may have been the late 1970s and '80s, when David Bowie and Iggy Pop would mix it up with the anarchists and countercultural types who had settled in Kreuzberg, but it continues to be a neighborhood center of interest. Inside, it's a long, deep performance space culminating in a stage, with facilities that are marginal at best. Most nights feature loud multiple bills of hardcore acts you've never heard of, but there's also the Turkish-themed Gayhane party, held the last Saturday of every month, and Café Fatal, a Sunday-night ballroom-dance party that includes a dance lesson and a cabaret act. And not to be missed is Kiez Bingo, on the second Tuesday of each month, an event that unites the neighborhood's graying punks, hipsters, yuppies, and old people for a rousing revival-hall-style night of good old-fashioned fun (take note, there will be a bingo hiatus from May to October).
