Vera is thé center of underground Pop-Culture in Groningen, or as we'd like to say it: Club for the International Pop Underground. We used to be a decent student fraternity, and that's how we got our name Veri Et Recti Amici (true and sincere friends). Nowadays we're a fully equipped concert venue where legendary bands like: U2, Sonic Youth, Nirvana and The White Stripes played in their early years. Every week there are about 3 or 4 concerts, a movie night, a free downstage concert and a weekly dance-night. All of our activities couldn't take place without our volunteers. There are over 200 (!) at the moment. They work in a variety of groups like: bartending, artdivision, downstage, production and many more. Check the Vera website for more information.
