Young club culture
Fat Fenders, specialising in electronica, was and still is very popular with DJs, with house and techno aficionados, and with lovers of electronic sounds in general.
This fan clientele quickly mobilised 200 people to clear up after the fire at the premises in Böhmische Strasse; they washed record covers, sanded the furniture and painted the walls. Other shops in Dresden Neustadt put donation boxes on their counters, the neighbours made coffee, and after only two weeks Fat Fenders was open for business again. As a thank-you to all the helpers, 30 clubs, recording companies and DJs paid for the equipment, music and people to fund a now legendary party at Sektor Evolution, a club in an industrial area of Dresden.
