Nirvana Tribute (Dualistics and friends) – 4.03.2009 @ Hi-Dive

Last night’s Nirvana Tribute was more fun than any of us could have imagined.  A Dualistics‘ performance of In Utero was spot on, transporting the entire crowd back to 1993.    Other friends invited to play were judiciously re-interpretting their own Nirvana favorites throughout the evening.  Creative highlights include Negative Creep as a blues jam, Come as You Are on casio, and a latin-flavored version of Drain You.
