The pill-poppin’ garage punkers of Black Lips are true  VERA favorites. With their wild and outrageous shows, they even won the infamous VERA Poll twice, in 2007 and 2021. Now, in our 50th anniversary year, they’re returning to celebrate it with us!

Their latest album ‘Apocalypse Love’ (2022) is filled with racy, crackling songs fired with a ‘don’t care’ attitude, which will undoubtedly grab you by the throat once again when you see them live. See you then!

Support Venus Tropicaux is a Rotterdam based Duolingo inspired post-punk no-wave band for generation X & Y. The band plays raw and unfiltered noisepunk bangers that leave you feel a tad bit confused but very satisfied at the same time. One year ago Venus Tropicaux played a very, very nice show in VERA during T.H.O.P. 05. This time the band plays support for Black Lips.
