The famous grunge music genre emerged in the 1980s in and near Seattle, Washington, but by the 90s, it spread throughout the nation and even to other countries like Australia. Albums like “Nevermind” by Nirvana and “Ten” by Pearl Jam were leaders of the movement and gave it the momentum to spread and become what it is today — a legendary style of rock. Although the popularity of grunge music has declined, it will always have a piece in music history along with the bands who made it proliferate.
What set grunge music apart from other forms of rock? It combines sounds and rifts typically associated with punk rock and heavy metal. Each band takes on its own version and style using electric guitars, drums, a bass guitar, and a lead singer. Some artists even incorporate indie rock melodies into their songs for a more raw tone that may include other unique instruments as well.
This July’s Grunge Fest in San Antonio will headline The Nirvana Experience, a Nirvana tribute band that precisely replicates the iconic sounds and instruments used by the original group. Hear the hits that made fans fall for Nirvana including most (if not all) of the tracks from “Nevermind.” This is your chance to experience a live Nirvana concert that will make you feel like you just stepped back into the 1990s!
The event will also feature Rusted Cage, a Soundgarden tribute group, and Some Temple Pilots. Don’t miss your one chance to hear all of these amazing bands on stage together for a night full of grunge-loving music and fun.
