“Nirvana” and Grunge in Rock and Roll class

Hi Nirvana Fans:

Jacob McMurray, the Senior Curator at the EMP Museum, will return to the Sociology of Rock and Roll on Tuesday, June 3 at 2:30, Kane 220.

Jacob’s presentation on Jimi Hendrix last week was amazing–archival photos, videos, recordings, photos, anecdotes, etc. (much of it information not accessible to the general public). I expect that his presentation about the “Grunge Scene” in Seattle, “Nirvana,” and other bands of that era (eg, “Soundgarden,” “Mud Honey,” “Pearl Jam,”) will be equally compelling. He curated the current exhibit on “Nirvana” at EMP–I have seen it, and it is inspiring. He has also written a book on the whole scene during that time in Seattle’s rock and roll history, entitled “Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind.”

Hope to see you on Tuesday.
