Friday 4th April represents the 20 year anniversary eve of Kurt Cobains untimely death. Not a date you would typically want to celebrate, so consider this show more an acknowledgement of everything Nirvana achieved and gave us, and everything they were and would have continued to be.
As we plough headlong into our 10th year of promoting in Devizes we find ourselves back at The Bell By The Green, one of our most regular haunts. We typically don’t do tribute shows, but this is too significant an anniversary to miss and let’s be honest, a good Nirvana show will be a lot of fun.
It takes guts to want to even perform live as a tribute to a band who changed the face of music and were the voice of a generation, it takes a whole new level of something to actually go and record a cover of said band, especially given the force and nature of Nirvana’s fans. They are a dedicated and fussy bunch.
So, it’s with great pleasure that I announce that we have captured one of the UK’s finest tributes to Nirvana. KIRVANA come from Shropshire, that’s a fair old way to play for us. We could of got a much closer band, but as promoters it’s our job to bring the most authentic tribute bands to town and with Kirvana that is just what we have done.
The band use the same vintage guitars and amps that Nirvana used as to specifically capture the true sound of the band, and as you will hear from the audio below, if they sound this good live next Friday, I will be a very happy punter indeed.
Support for the evening comes from a Devizes legend, Gary Martin and his band AUDIO PUPPY who will provide an authentic grunge sound, along with an alternative DJ playing all the best rock and alternative music from the 90’s.
