3. Nevermind 30th Anniversary Tribute Show ft. Bedsit
23rd September 2021 (8pm – 11:30pm)
“In 1991, Nirvana’s “Nevermind” was unleashed to the world. An unparalleled hybrid of contagious, visceral punk and earworm pop melodies, it was soon being recognised as a much-needed breath of fresh air to a rock landscape that had become stale and unoriginal. With the MTV and radio hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit” making waves unlike any lead single in living memory, Nirvana became the face of ”the Seattle sound” that would eventually be known to millions as “grunge”.
“Nevermind flew off the store shelves, and is now considered a classic record, adored by millions around the world to this day. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the album that brought alternative rock kicking and screaming into the mainstream. In celebration, Hull-based grunge outfit Bedsit will be performing the album live, in its entirety, at a special one-off event at The New Adelphi Club.”
