VERA will present a tailor-made program for two days in De Kameleon on Noorderzon, this time in collaboration with the Rotterdam underground venue WORM (Friday) and Jaap van der Velde (The Homesick). Together with these skippers we bring new, diverse and urgent bands to the stage. Amongst those an art-collective from Saint Petersburg. Check the site and chalkboard for the program!

Vera Downstage presenteert:
15.00 - 15.45 Shaemless
Vierkoppige postpunk band uit Nijmegen. Sinds 2016 zetten ze intense, met zweet doorweekte shows neer, geïnspireerd door bands als The Stooges en The Birthday Party. Het geluid wat hier vrij komt is ruw, energiek, noisy, en dynamisch. Hardgaan maar wel met verfijning.

Jaap van der Velde cureert:
16.30 - 17.15 Goldblum
Goldblum is the self-titled debut by Marijn Verbiesen (Red Brut, Sweat Tongue) and Michiel Klein (Lewsberg, Sweat Tongue). The duo creates lo-fi sound collages working with flea market cassettes, tape-loops, keyboards and vocals in both English and Dutch.

19.30 - 20.00 Thor Kissing
Musician and visual artist Thor Kissing (The Hague) makes some of the weirdest tunes in the Dutch pop landscape.

21.00 - 21.45 Nicolini + Lyckle

Aansluitend DJ's Grand Cafe & Friends
