    Hey guys,
    Pete here from Cork Alternative Rock band Paradox.
    We are organizing a number of special events in Cork City and West Cork for the 20th Anniversary of Kurt Cobain's with fellow Cork band Screenreader
    The events will take place in April on the following dates ::

    - Fri 4th April 2014
    The Crane Lane Theatre, Phoenix Street, Cork

    Kurt Cobain 20th Anniversary - Celebrating the music of Nirvana w/ Paradox, Screenreader & Johnny Horne

    - Sat 5th April 2014
    DeBarras, Clonakilty, Main Street, Clonakilty, Cork

    Kurt Cobain 20th Anniversary - Celebrating the music of Nirvana w/ Paradox, Screenreader

    - Sat 12th April 2014
    The Mariner, Bantry, Co. Cork

    Kurt Cobain 20th Anniversary - Celebrating the music of Nirvana w/ Screenreader, Paradox

    Ironically Nirvana kicked off their European Tour right here in Cork on August 20th 1991. The gig took place in Sir Henry's, a venue which closed its doors for the final time in 2003, and was headlined by Sonic Youth. Nirvana were virtually unknown at this point but it was only a matter of weeks after this show that the band snowballed after the success of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and became one of the world's biggest bands, almost overnight.

    It has also recently been revealed that Kurt has direct roots from Cork as Kurt quoted himself ::

    "Actually it was Cobain, but the Coburns screwed it up when they came over . They came from Country Cork, which is a really weird coincidence, because when we toured Ireland, we played in Cork and the entire day I walked around in a daze. I'd never felt more spiritual in my life. It was the weirdest feeling and-I have a friend who was with me who could testify to this-I was almost in tears the whole day. Since that tour, which was bout two years ago, I've had some sense that I was from Ireland."

    Join Cork bands Paradox, Screenreader and Johnny Horne at the Crane Lane Theatre in Cork on Friday April 4th, DeBarras in Clonakilty on Saturday April 5th and The Mariner in Bantry on Saturday April 12th on as they remember Nirvana's music and legacy 20 years later playing some Nirvana classics from In Utero, Nevermind, Bleach and many more. All events are Free Admission.
