Amazing footage of the Boccaccio. At 2:10 the mayor of Destelbergen speaks to reporters about the nuisance of the club…which remained open sometimes from Sunday evening all the way until Monday evening. Even after closing, he says, club patrons would continue to hang out in the neighborhood around the club. The mayor calls in the Rijkswacht (National Guard?) and forces the club to close on Monday night. Eventually, the owner of the club, Dirk De Maesschalk, pushes the DJ off the decks to catcalls from the clubbers. A reporter asks him “why did you shut off the music” and he replies “because the neighbors are complaining.”
