Nirvana Exhibition To Open In Seattle

A new exhibition, Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses, opens in Seattle in April. And since that miserable coke head, Courtney Love is not involved, this is finally something worth seeing. Memorabilia on display includes a cardigan worn by Kurt Cobain, handwritten lyrics and more than 200 other band artifacts. According to, the exhibition will run from April 16-22 at the Experience Music Project in Seattle.

Bassist Krist Novoselic said: “It’s great that there will soon be a collection that celebrates [Cobain’s] contribution to music and culture. There’s a story with Nirvana at its center, but it’s a story that also includes the many people, bands and institutions that make up a music community.”

In other Nirvana news, the band’s very rare Hormoaning EP will be re-released for Record Store Day on vinyl on April 16.
