WHAT IS WHITE TRASH
White Trash Fast Food is one of the most famous and internationally renowned clubs in Berlin, where a list of incredible musicians and artists have been performing since 2000. The main main ingredient, says founder ‘Wally’ Potts’, that makes White Trash, is “Rock n’ Roll”, a la eclectica, a daily freak show of amazingly talented artists, live tattooing, accompanied by home-style,“stick to your ribs” food and amazing drinks.
Starting as a ‘Kunstler Kantine’ in a Hackeschemarkt art house squat in 2000, White trash like so many clubs in Berlin has lived a nomad existence. Facing gentrification, stricter regulation, noise complaints, and skyrocketing rents, White Trash was pushed from one location to another, always starting new, building, redefining itself, the bombed out squat, to an abandoned Chinese restaurant in the then desolate Tor Straße, to an broken down Irish Pub in the Schönhauser Allee.
We moved to the Flutgraben in may 2014 with high hopes and a big monster job before us. We landed with our restaurant and staff in a full blown construction zone. The 6 month building plan turned into a nightmare, two and a half years and in the end it broke our balls. My team and family were heroic, but in April 2015 just as we were finishing the Ballroom Live Performance Theater, we were forced to file for bankruptcy.
BREAKDOWN * OPTIMISTIC RESTART
Because the Trash itself was running good, even under such harsch conditions, the court allowed us the option to restructure, find a strategic partner, and continue serving up white trash home cooking, devil music on the side.
WHEN THE WOLVES SMELL BLOOD
Over the last months, the search for a partner was hopeless, suddenly with the scent blood coming from the Flutgraben, the wolves descended upon us, all more than willing to have the beautiful White Trash space we had built, but without us and the White Trash.
FLUX FM * TRINITY CONCERTS * WHITE TRASH FREEDOM FIGHTERS
It seemed hopeless, the dark night, the wolves howling, clawing at our door, when suddenly, in the last second, our dream Partners appeared, they understood what we were trying to do, they could see the predicament we were in, and knew exactly what to do. They immediately joined together with us to save the White Trash vision, and continue with us our journey of 15 years for me, my family, and countless dedicated employees, to bring White Trash Fast Food to the high road of success. It seems that this would be the happy ending, except for...
...THE EVIL THAT GREEDY MEN DO
Secretly, several prospective partners we had been negotiating with, joined forces with one of my corrupt lawyers, and together made a power play to take away our rent contract, and made a surprise bid to buy out the White Trash. It was not quite legal what they did, and we fought them back. Now it will be decided above board in a hearing this Friday, who will get the right to take the Trash.
Please sign our petition. To help influence this decision we need public support. We also need you to share our story.
