Herrgår'n is a student pub/bar/disco/club/venue located in
Linköping, Sweden on the University of Linköping's campus
grounds (sort of). It is completely run by students, and it is open
every afternoon - night all days of the week. Every Thursday
(with modification) the upstairs disco transforms into a stage and
a venue, where Live music usually can be heard around 22.00, with a
following Pop-party with good clean independent & alternative
music that ends when the place closes, at 03.00.
Several "known" Swedish independent / alternative bands have played at Herrgår'n, like Blithe, The Bear Quartet, Cloudberry Jam, Fireside, Yvonne, Starmarket, Leslies, Honey Is Cool, Salt, Green, Shredhead... and so on. And numerous American and English bands have played here too. The list can be made pretty long.
These thursday events used to be held by three "Nations" (clubs for students from the same areas of Sweden), Smålands Nation, Skånska Nationen and Norrsken. And when they got together, they were called Rock The Nation.
Starting 1998, this all changed. The Nations will no longer handle the live nights at Herrgår'n as they do this at their own place downtown Linköping called "Nationshuset" (opened in August 1998) - and Herrgår'n handle their own live arrangements. The new name of the thursday live events became John Doe.
