Kathmandu based event company, Live&Loud organized “Grunge ‘Dirty & Groovy’” at Purple Haze Rock Bar, Thamel to pay tribute to grunge bands on Saturday. Members from various bands reunited to revive the Seattle origin genre.

Sound Chain Pilots (SCP) — the supergroup, All Star, ROCK GENE, and H.O.S shared the stage at the rock bar. H.O.S opened the event. The bands performed various famous songs from the grunge bands. The head bangs, sing along to the song and fans jumping from the ramp were evident in the whole event.

The performance by SCP was the highlight of the event where they not only gave tribute to the legendary grunge bands but also remembered Nirmala Panta through Stone Temple Pilots’ ‘Plush’. Guitarist of Tumbleweed Inc., Sarad Shrestha said, “Stone Temple Pilots sang this song for a girl who was brutally murdered. Today, we are going to sing this song to remember Nirmala Panta.”

 “Grunge ‘Dirty & Groovy’”, a yearly event, began in 2015. Every year, various artists from different bands are welcomed to share the stage for the tribute to the grunge bands. The man behind this idea, Suyesh Rajbhandari, founder of Live&Loud shared it was his love toward the grunge that made him organize this show. “I am a huge fan of Nirvana and I love this genre,” he added.
