Busk Break: Nirvana for a new generation

Although this trio of buskers were still several years from being born when “About a Girl” was released on Nirvana’s 1989 debut album ‘Bleach,’ they don’t seem to have a problem getting into it.

We’re trying to upgrade our busk-recording equipment, so please consider a donation to our IndieGoGo campaign for a better video camera.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Lead singer kid is too fidgety. Nice performance on the acoustic guitars and backing vocals though.

    I caught these kids when I was leaving LAAAF, and was really impressed by the entire act. The vocal harmonies are key, but the lead singer really brings it home for me.

    So kid, if you’re reading this, ignore that first commenter and listen to someone who’s actually performed on streets and stages for the past decade: you’ve got moxie. Keep it up.
