To use a phrase that we learned at least two decades ago, tonight’s recommended show is “the hottest ticket in town.” Beyond that, it’s the one that’s most worthy of your hard-earned money. If you’re one of the lucky ticketholders, 9/20 has long been marked on your calendar as the day you’d be heading to Paul Allen’s EMP to hear some of the best and/or most notable Seattle musicians play tribute to Seattle’s most iconic release from twenty years ago. Tonight, all songs from Nirvana’s Nevermind will be performed by a “star-studded” roster including:
The Presidents of the United States of America, The Fastbacks, Krist Novoselic, Vaporland, Duff McKagan’s Loaded, The Long Winters, Visqueen, Valis (former Screaming Trees), Campfire OK, Champagne Champagne, Ravenna Woods, Crypts, TacocaT, Vendetta Red, and more.
After Nevermind there will be a special encore set of Nirvana songs played by artists including Young Fresh Fellows, Pigeonhed, Cobirds Unite, The Tripwires, Shelby Earl, Stag, SEACATS, Cali Giraffes, and Tom Price Desert Classic.
If that wasn’t compelling enough, all proceeds from tonight’s show will go to helping “longtime Seattle music industry maven” Susie Tennant who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
Visit http://susietennantfund.bbnow.org/ to make a donation. Funds raised go toward medical expenses and family support throughout Susie’s extended cancer treatment.
