Seattle Sound Forever
Nirvana's 'In Utero' Turns 20
Celebrate the classic album with an expansive anniversary reissue and a tribute at the EMP.
Released September 13, 1993, In Utero was the last studio album Nirvana released. While it wasn't the cultural landmark on par Nevermind, In Utero accurately captured the Nirvana's raw edge and displayed Kurt Cobain's gift for forlorn songwriting one final time. To mark the In Utero's 20th anniversary, the album recieves a new 3 CD/1 DVD reiusse. The three CDs feature 60 tracks, including two versions of the album—one remastered, and one completely remixed—b-sides, rehearsal recordings, and unreleased demos. The DVD (also available separately) captures the band's MTV Live and Loud concert at Seattle's Pier 48 on December 13, 1993. The deluxe reissue of In Utero arrives in stores on September 24.
The EMP (unofficial home of Nirvana nostalgia) is also marking In Utero's anniversary events this weekend. On September 13, 14, and 15, patrons can see an preview screening of the Live and Loud concert footage at 3pm, check out local artist playing Nirvana tunes from noon–2pm, and receive guided gallery tours of Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses exhibit.
