History of Grunge

Remember when grunge was just everyday life? Flannel, long hair, not washing too often.

It seems like that was only a few weeks ago. (Right now, it's too warm for the flannel.)

The musical movement has now been relegated to history by the Experience Music Project, which is currently celebrating the gurus of grunge in an exhibit called Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses. The exhibit includes artifacts and videos, including this one with the band's former drummer Chad Channing.

Along with the EMP exhibit comes a visual history book, Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind.

Jacob McMurray, EMP's senior curator, will be at the Olympia Timberland Library Friday, Aug. 5, at 7:30 p.m. to talk about and sign the book, which includes images and stories by such musical icons as Henry Rollins, Mark Mothersbaugh and Olympia's own Calvin Johnson.

Thanks for the plug, Molly! We always appreciate the support you give to the library's programming efforts. We'll have some cool big posters, buttons, stickers, etc; to give away as door prizes, too. Should be a good time.
