Only 363 days until Kurt Cobain Day

February 21, 2014

The first inaugural Kurt Cobain Day has come and gone within the City of Aberdeen.

Thursday night at the Aberdeen Museum of History, hundreds of Nirvana fans gathered to remember Kurt on what would have been his 47th birthday as the museum unveiled Cement Resurrection at its new home within the Aberdeen Music Experience exhibit.

Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson spoke to the crowd last night, saying that when he first became mayor, he was not a fan of Kurt or his music, but the more that he learned, the greater the respect he earned.

Cement Resurrection will remain at the museum until further notice alongside numerous other Nirvana and Melvins memorabilia, providing another location within Aberdeen for the hundreds to thousands of people who travel to this area yearly to pay tribute to the man who helped change the face of music.

Simpson said that Kurt Cobain Day will not simply be a single day, but an event celebrated yearly within the city.
