REINTERPRETATIONS OF NIRVANA
~~Benefiting Mental Health services at
the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic~~
In tonight's performance, a roster of New Orleans artists will perform reinterpreted songs by the legendary Seattle band, Nirvana. Each of the artists will be working with a house ensemble ran by guitarist/composer Tristan Gianola (a Seattle native himself) to put Nirvana's lyrics and music under a microscope, as well as contemplating the «grunge sound» and this era of music from the Pacific Northwest.
This is not a tribute or cover show. All artists are using their full range of imagination to reconstruct these songs from their original source according to what they hear in the music and lyrics. Tonight we hope to not simply entertain, but to take risks, experiment and share musical dialogue and critical thinking over Nirvana's music.
21+ | 9pm | Proceeds go to New Orleans Musicians' Clinic's Mental Health Program
