Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of his band's landmark album Nevermind by playing songs from the album with local musicians at a concert in Seattle on September 20th. The gig, which will take place at the Sky Church venue at the Experience Music Project, is a benefit for Seattle music industry figure Susie Tennant, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

Novoselic will be joined by a variety of Seattle area bands for the event, including the Fastbacks, Vaporland, the Long Winters, Visqueen, Campfire OK, Ravenna Woods and Valis. Unfortunately for hardcore Nirvana fans, drummer Dave Grohl will not be involved with the show, as his band the Foo Fighters will be performing in Cleveland on that night.
