They Might Be Giants An early photo of Nirvana flashes on screen at the EMP preview party for Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses.

We enjoyed a preview tour of the new Nirvana exhibit at EMP last week, but you didn’t think we’d skip out on the preview party, did you? Photographer Lucas Anderson was at the EMP festivities on Friday night—view the slideshow for scenes from the evening, including close-ups of the exhibit (more guitars! In Utero angels!) and Krist Novoselic addressing his people.

Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses is on display at Experience Music Project | Science Fiction Museum through April 22, 2013.
