Celebrate the legendary sounds of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain with Chicago’s grungiest tribute to Nirvana “Smells Like Nirvana” as they perform songs from Nevermind, In Utero, Bleach and more. Smells Like Nirvana is composed of seasoned pros and die-hard-fans of Nirvana fronted by Paul Wandtke (ex Trivium, @DeadOriginal), drummer Nick Shabatura (Absent Mind) and Mike Petrasek (Bedlem).
Their live tribute to Nirvana is a haunting episode of grunge filled angst playing songs from Nirvana’s albums Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero and MTV Unplugged as well as rare b-sides and more; played without click tracks or backing tracks, a trait that is rare in today’s contemporary musical landscape, a trait and philosophy that Nirvana lived by.
“The first demo I ever owned was of Nirvana! Nirvana is the reason I got into music. I’ll never forget the songs Smells Like
Teen Spirit and Even in His Youth, they changed my life forever. ~Paul Wandtke
