Vera Project

Thao Nguyen

I had the chance to see Thao sans The Get Down Stay Down at the Vera Project. ¬†She maintains the same voice and same lyrical style but just more mellow. ¬†Despite the fact that the band that opened for her were pounding on drums screaming wearing spandex suits…Thao kept her impressive style.

Abe Vigoda at The Vera Project Seattle

Another night of bands at a cool venue. Despite being ‘All Ages’ the Vera Project is a great place to go if you are 21+. There are a lot of bars surrounding it for a drink before and after the show. Plus, the stage area is open and never feels super packed even with a healthy crowd.

I went down there on a whim after checking their line-up and after dealing with some bland overly reverb’d lameness from one band and ear splitting cacophony from a distorted violin a pleasant surprise finished up…

Abe Vigoda is a classic sounding punk band from LA. And, they embody that sound to the ‘T’ which is a great thing.

As for the shoot Vera has some interesting light and I think that grabbing it in flares or silhouettes is where I tend to go when I’m there. It isn’t as dark as some other places too which is nice.
