THE VERA PROJECT 1916 Fourth Ave, 956-VERA I regret not giving more support to the Vera Project. Sure, I write about their shows and happily give 'em my six or so bucks for cover charge, but I could've done more. I think we all could've. Especially considering everything they've done for us--like hosting kickass all-ages rock shows, open mics, art shows, et cetera. Now the Vera could really use our help, too, since a few grants they were counting on unfortunately didn't come through. So to help keep Vera from starting the new year in debt, dig deep in your pockets--it's the season of giving, after all--and send a few extra bucks to: The Vera Project, 1122 E Pike St, PO Box 849, Seattle, WA 98122.
