Nowadays a stronghold of underground, house and dance music, initially Piper started out as a venue for sixties beat music, even hosting shows by groups like Procol Harum, Pink Floyd and even Jimi Hendrix.
Since then Piper has always followed the trends: In the 70’s David Bowie, Genesis and jazzmen like Lionel Hampton and Duke Ellingtom played here, followed by Nirvana in the 80’s and, after a long period without live music, in the first years of the present century saw a.o. Babyshambles and the Fratellis.
