Portland is giving this month's Kosmetik calendar the old 1-2 punch. Joining us this week is VERA HURTR. The last two sets VERA HURTR has contributed to the annual Gays Hate Techno gathering left us swooning. Spanning EBM, techno, and industrial, VERA HURTR helped to break the GHT weekend open; pitching in Grauzone's Eisbaer and creating a bears gone wild nature scene.

Let's meet in a dark corner of the Stud on one of the longest nights of the year!

We brought in trees and live birds...No photos allowed. So it existed onlyin the memories of those who were there"
