MLC München has recently announced its club venue, the UnderGround3, will close on January 31st, 2012. The club is looking for assistance with restoring the venue and finding a new club location.
The board of the club writes on its website:
On January 31st 2012, lights will be switched off at the current UnderGround for the last time. Without giving any reason, the Stadtwerke München have terminated the rental agreement. Besides that, they have requested that the hall has to be restored by February 1st, 2012. A written request of the Board to the Stadtwerke for a meeting appointment was denied. Even the commitment of our City Council Thomas Niederbühl to obtain a repeal of the termination by political means wasn’t successful. The desired result could not be achieved. At this point, however, we would like to thank Mr. Niederbühl for his dedicated commitment to our needs. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to find a suitable new location for the UnderGround3 in such a short time, so that all parties in 2012 have to be cancelled for an indefinite period. However, stark-bier-fest will take place from 7 to 11 March 2012 as planned. In these difficult times the MLC needs the help and support of all members and friends.
In order to restore the hall in time to the original state, all installations have to be dismantled and put into storage. We are therefore urgently looking for helpers who can assist us. Anyone who can spare some time may contact us at this new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are hoping for the solidarity and the common sense of the community.
We are also grateful for any advice on where we possibly might establish a new club location. There’s also a new e-mail-address for these tips: UG3@mlc-munich.de. Even if we were not very amused about the course of action and the handling by the Stadtwerke, we are optimistically looking into the future. And we are confident of being able to build a new UnderGround for our club and the community in Munich over the course of the coming year. We are grateful about any kind of support.
