NEWS: ‘Nirvana: Taking Punk To The Masses’ Exhibition coming to Seattle

There is a new Nirvana exhibition opening next month in Seattle at the EMPSFM Museum. Running from April 16th, 2011 – April 22, 2013 you can check out a bunch of Kurt and Nirvana related memorabilia.

Exhibition Highlights:

  • Kurt Cobain’s never-before exhibited, high school painting of two aging, Reagan-era punks in the post-apocalypse, informally known as “punk American gothic.”
  • The Teac reel-to-reel tape machine owned by Mari Earl, Cobain’s aunt, on which a young Kurt recorded material for his early bands, Organized Confusion and Fecal Matter.
  • Cobain’s handwritten lyrics for Nirvana songs including “Spank Thru” and “Floyd the Barber.”
  • Numerous instruments, including pieces of the first guitar Cobain destroyed onstage (a Univox Hi-Flyer); Dave Grohl’s Tama Rockstar-Pro drum kit; and Krist Novoselic’s Guild acoustic bass guitar and Buck Owens American acoustic guitar used during the recording of “MTV Unplugged.”
  • The yellow cardigan worn often by Cobain between 1991 and 1994.
  • The winged angel stage prop featured on Nirvana’s In Utero tour.
  • Scores of candid snapshots capturing the band’s early years, from their beginnings in Aberdeen, Washington to the media frenzy that erupted after Nevermind.
  • Interactives that will allow guests to dive deeper into the history of the band as well as allow guests to make their own mark by including their own personal stories.
