(Former) Rock­palast in Ho­hen­limburg


a short guest per­form­ance

Ho­hen­limburg has only 30,000 or so in­hab­it­ants, and is loc­ated to the east of Ha­gen just over the bor­der from the Sauer­land re­gion. Today, it is gen­er­ally as­so­ci­ated with the palace theatre per­form­ances at Schloss Ho­hen­limburg. However, in the former Oeger-Lux cinema, which is now a mosque, Mi­chael Arens and Nobi Höhne opened a punk bar and small con­cert hall in 1980, which wrote rock his­tory as the Rock­palast Ho­hen­limburg. It?s in­cred­ible to think which bands per­formed here on the edge of the Ruhr re­gion in the two-and-a-half years in which the ven­ue ex­is­ted. They in­cluded the greats of the Ger­man New Wave, such as DAF, Ex­trab­reit and Ab­wärts, as well as the met­al band Ac­cept, the punk rock­ers The Ex­ploited and the drum­ming le­gend Ginger Baker.
