So the KOTD lost the venue for the Bunker?

@ at around 1:10:00
Chris Unbias talks about how he heard KOTD might have lost the building to the Bunker since Verb was supposed to battle at future event but it seems to not be going down

Sounds like the plot to Breakin' 2:Electric Boogaloo...

Wealthy real estate developers want the land but there's a venue where kids do their hippity-hoppity stuff there, so the community must rally around the venue and hold one last final gig to raised the money to save the Radiotron...er.. I mean Bunker.

Bunker events seem live as fuck. Everybody in the building sweating like they just got home from Planet Fitness. I am honestly upset that I've never been to one of those shows. Living in Orlando doesn't make it easy though.

how did they 'lose' the bunker? my understanding was that the property was purchased by Jpro and Avo or something to that effect, is it a city ordinance thing or was they simply not selling enough tiks to keep up with the rent?

Probly leasing it but if something is happening I bet they're trying to work thru it

Or if they are losing cheddar or whatever and they just wanted to call it a day who knows, it's up to them, but hopefully everything is cool

idk, having never visited the bunker my opinion is somewhat invalid, but as someone looking at it from the outside can we agree that maybe the bunker was never as ideal as it was made out to be and that maybe this will be an opportunity to move on to a better west coast venue?

put it to you this way, most of what made the bunker special was aesthetic (murals, staging, etc) but there were a few elements to that place that took away from the events. Primary thing is that it's a metal sauna box in California that's visibly roasting the energy out of both the crowd and the battlers, Thesaurus is lucky to still be alive. I'm sure they were taking what measures they could to ventilate the place but most events seemed to suffer from heat fatigue. The location I'm not too sure was very attractive for bringing in crowds/new bloods who might just be in the area and are curious what's going on, again idk what kinda area it's in but it doesn't seem the be exactly bubbling. Maybe it's just me but attendance always seemed to suffer (I understand it's meant to be a smaller "underground" venue) but when the majority of faces you see are the battlers, regular heads and reverse live it almost seems less like an event and more like a backyard tree house club. I know I sound like a total hater rn I'm really not trying to piss on the bunker/kotd but let's be honest that there was something about the atmosphere that felt kinda sad and made the whole west coast scene seem somewhat squandered.

haha, it hasn't been THAT bad recently.

for all intents and purposes everyone I've talked to loved being there...hard to judge from an outside perspective besides all the REALLY quality releases, which have all been great.

From my understanding the building was regularly used and rented out as studio space for artists as well.

It's worrisome Avo hasn't debunked this yet. Hope he's just getting a laugh out of a baseless rumor.
