It’s Vera’s Birthday all weekend long!
Celebrate FIVE YEARS of Vera tonight with:
Zine Station where you can paste, tape, collage, or type memories from the past 5 years at Vera. All things created and dropped off will be made into a Anniversary Zine to be distributed in February.
5 Cakes! One for each year. Vietnamese tofu sandwiches and crème puffs will be available for consumption. Eat up!!
Justin Shear and James Nixon have slaved over a retrospective slideshow of the last 5 years. Slides of volunteers, members, bands and staff from the early years until very recently! Don’t miss it, James has mixed live cuts from groups that have performed at Vera. Oooohhh fancy.
The rumors are confirmed. Super Secret Special Guest is…?
Here are a couple clues:
They played one of their first shows at Local 46.
They’re all over the radio and local newspapers.
They love vampires.
Not to mention DJ Mac busting some dance music and possible dance moves!
A silkscreen station set up so everyone can screen “Celebrating 5 Years” onto any article of clothing you bring. Possibly a Vera shirt that could use a little spunk or just maybe that umbrella you‚ve been meaning to decorate. Or purchase a limited edition 5 year anniversary t-shirt with a redesigned old school Vera logo!
It all starts at 7 pm (you have just under and hour to get there!) at the Fourth Ave space. And it’s FREE!
And tomorrow night, the Showbox hosts a sold-out show with the Blood Brothers, Minus the Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, and Crystal Skulls. Yay!
Happy birthday, Vera!!
