Where Are You Sleeping Tonight?: A Nirvana Tribute Show

95bFM presents...
Where Are You Sleeping Tonight?: A Nirvana Tribute Show

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Nirvana’s iconic album Nevermind and the multi-format reissue of the album this September, 95bFM is putting together a night of Nirvana covers at the Kings Arms on Friday, Sept 23rd.

Interpreting Nirvana’s classic catalogue are some of the best - and perhaps least expected - young bands that Auckland has to offer:

SHERPA
god bows to math
$noregazZzm
MEAN GIRLS
X-RAY FIENDS
NEVERNUDES

As with past 95bFM tribute nights, expect the unexpected - each of these bands is sure to impart their own unique (and likely unorthodox) spin on Nirvana’s pivotal sound.

To commemorate the anniversary of this landmark album, Universal Music have created a full spectrum re-issue programme worthy of such a pivotal classic. With configurations ranging from a 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album, the 20th anniversary reissue of Nevermind makes the most of the occasion, unearthing literally dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings - including a 1991 Halloween concert at Seattle's Paramount Theatre in its entirety. The 20th Anniversary Editions will be released on September 26th by Universal Music New Zealand.

WHERE ARE YOU SLEEPING TONIGHT?: A Nirvana Tribute Show
Friday, Sept 23rd
Kings Arms Tavern
Doors at 7pm, bands from 8pm
Free entry with your bCard - bCards will also be for sale at the door.

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland
