Blue Shell is kind of awesome.
I came here in May 2009, on my second night ever in Köln, during my first trip to Germany. It happened to be the 35th anniversary show of the venue. A totally ridiculous cover band, the Silk Rabbits, was playing, and so for a minimal amount of money I enjoyed some fun music, excellent people watching and delicious Kölsch.
Since then, I have not been back, but I have kept tabs on the venue, and I see that a lot of good acts are playing there when passing through town. I hope to someday be back.
