Das Bunker 4 Life

Amigos! Check out our new episode of We Have a Technical (the 14th to be exact), wherein we chat with friend of the site John G, aka Rev John. Now John should need no intro, but if you haven’t had the pleasure, John has been instrumental in the operations of Los Angeles’ notorious (and now defunct…OR IS IT?) Das Bunker for a decade, and is an owner operator at LA’s Complex. We chat with him about the end of Bunker, its rebirth, and his general philosophy of club promotion. As always when we talk to John, it’s an enlightening convo with lots to chew on, we hope you’ll enjoy it and that it’ll give you a thing or two to chew on.

Just a quick note that John also posted a tell-all style breakdown of some of the other issues that led to the closure of Bunker over on the official DB Tumblr. Go read it!
