Auction item: two framed archival photos of Kurt Cobain.

As Seattle Weekly reported late last week, there’s a great collection of rock memorabilia being auctioned on eBay right now to support local music industry veteran Susie Tennant, who’s been battling ovarian cancer since last spring. Susie started out as a rep for Geffen Records in the ‘90s and was Nirvana’s onetime publicist, but she’s long been a champion of local music (and a friend to many). Family and friends organized a Nevermind benefit concert at EMP on her behalf in September, and they’re rallying again now.

Spread the word: Auction items include framed Nirvana photos by Charles Peterson, archival Pearl Jam images, Soundgarden screenprint tour posters, signed Ozzy Osbourne and Strokes posters, and Sasquatch! tickets.
