Another reason why I wish I lived in Seattle, beyond the fact that it’s gorgeous, clean, relaxing, and my friend Smita lives there — they’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime concert…unless, of course, it goes super well, and bassist Krist Novoselic turns into it some traveling show. Or takes it to Vegas.
To celebrate the 20 years since the release of Nirvana’s Nevermind, Novoselic and a few folks will be playing the album live in its entirety. Each song will be played by a different Seattle band, and Krist.
It goes down September 20 at the Sky Church venue at the Experience Music Project with Novoselic, members of The Fastbacks, Vaporland, The Long Winters, Visqueen, Campfire OK, Ravenna Woods and Valis.
Money raised at the show will benefit Seattle music industry figure Susie Tennant, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
A special edition of Nevermind will be released on September 27. The 20th anniversary will be remastered and available as a digital release or a two-disc set featuring B-sides and demo recordings.
