Krist Novoselic Joining <i>Nevermind</i> 20th Anniversary Tribute

Although a Nirvana reunion is obviously impossible, fans might be getting the next-best thing on Sept. 20 in Seattle. The Seattle radio station 107.7 The End reports Nirvana’s decade-defining album Nevermind will be performed in its entirety at the EMP Sky Church. There will be a different act performing every song on the album. The lineup so far includes Nirvana-bassist-turned-political-blogger Krist Novoselic, the Fastbacks, the Long Winters and Valis, which includes former members of Seattle band the Screaming Trees. The event is a benefit for Susie Tennant, a Seattle music advocate who was diagnosed with cancer, and is $20 to attend. Tickets can be purchased here.

It’s unlikely that drummer Dave Grohl will make an appearance—the Foo Fighters are scheduled to play a show in Cleveland, Ohio that night. Novoselic teamed up with the Foos on bass to perform a Nirvana b-side in late 2010. He also played bass and accordion for “I Should Have Known,” a song on Foo Fighters’ 2011 album, Wasting Light.
