Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard and TV on the Radio‘s Tunde Adebimpe are all taking part in Viva Vera 20, an online event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Seattle performance venue and arts education workshop The Vera Project.
The Foos and Adebimpe will call in to share some virtual birthday wishes, while Gibbard will be performing during the stream.
“The sense of community, and love for the space and the people who were in it, was immediate and palpable,” says Adebimpe of The Vera Project. “It makes me so happy that it’s still around to provide that inspiration and that community to anyone who shows up, because that’s a life-changing quality.”
Viva Vera 20 will premiere this Wednesday, January 27 — the exact anniversary of The Vera Project’s first show.
