Saturday is your time to be famous in Geneva. But only Saturday, mind you. Blink and it’s over, you have to wait another week for your fifteen minutes of fame.
The Scene is one of Geneva night life’s best kept secrets and I am about to ruin it.
Every Saturday, a small venue located under a student apartment building opens its door to anyone who wishes to see a concert and play some music. The program is invariably the same, yet always different. Concert, then a jam session, during which anyone can play. On the last Saturday of every month, there is a battle of the bands where the winner goes home with a day of free recording time in a studio.
For young musicians, it’s the opportunity to make a name for themselves on the local stage and for us, it’s a way to have a blast.
And after your first time, you’ll want to go back for more. You can then entrust the organizers with your phone number, and get a super secret, confidential text message every Thursday, giving you the program for that weekend.
