I grew up in Stuttgart, and I couldn't describe the situation better than jhonnymayo: Stuttgart can be a really, really nice place, but most about every fun people have here is just a little too sedated, yes jm ... :)
If I go out I choose Oblomov
, Torstr. 20.
The music most times I was there was undefinable, i.e. some depressing mix between house and jazz, something like that. But it's no good dance music, I believe ... But I don't go there too often, because it's just more a downer than anything else.
I wanted to try "Mata Hari
", Geißstraße 3, center of Stuttgart -- I read they'd play Rock
music - Perhaps I'll give it a try the next few days, and then maybe report back to here ... :)
@ woo: I gave up on the possibility of good music on Stuttgart FM radios: The only station that might help: AFN, I have it on 102.4 FM ... Best time I found: Sundays from noon to night: First the country count down, after that some rock count down. I even heard NIN style stuff, I believe.
I don't believe you'll hear Motorhead, NIN, M. Manson and such on German radio. Ever. ... just forget about that ... Except I heard one of the lousiest Manson songs I know ("Heart shaped Glasses?", Pop remixed, I believe ...) a few months ago on some Stuttgart (German) FM radio ...
BBC Radio 1 feeds an Internet rtsp stream ... I just listen to it, thanks for the reminder, woo ... :) ... Just make sure to set the cache size for your music player a little higher ...
