In the Seattle of the ‘90s, the mountains were draped in flannel, coffee rained from the clouds, and a new genre of music was born: grunge. Meaty and muddy, grunge flushed heavy metal through pop aqueducts and punk-rock sewers before lackadaisically conquering the world until it ran out of cigarettes. To honor the sound and Teen Spirit smells of the grunge heyday, the Chicagoland cover-band collective known as Legacy of Seattle bulldozes memory lane with tributes to the Emerald City’s most famous grunge exports: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains.
The members of Nevermind: The Touring Nirvana Tribute approach their roles of Cobain, Grohl, and Novoselic like method actors, crossing the country to play all the venues Nirvana played, scoring endorsements from both The Kurt Cobain Memorial Foundation and Kurt’s grandpa, and even playing gigs in Cobain’s old apartment. Plucking songs from a well containing 80 Nirvana classics, the band mirrors the screams and scowls of their heroes, thrilling fans who never got to catch them in the '90s. Given 2 Fly gives audiences their Pearl Jam fix, knocking out hits such as “Even Flow” and “Alive” while channeling Stone Gossard’s merciless guitar work and Eddie Vedder’s reverse Heimlich maneuver growl. Rounding out the tribute triumvirate, the Alice in Chains Tribute Band inhabits the thickest, sludgiest band in the bundle, aping the berserk guitar of Jerry Cantrell and the tortured croon of Layne Staley in favorites such as “Dirt” and “Junkhead.”
