Mixtape:1993 - 6/12 - Rosebud Diner, Somerville, MA

1993: Kurt Cobain and Bradley Nowell were still with us. The Alt-Rock Seattle scene was finally making it to national radio. Music videos were reaching awesome heights. When I was a teenager I jumped up to record "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies (came out in 1994 though, but you'll get my point) on the radio on to a blank tape and cut my leg with a pair of scissors I was using to cut out pictures of famous people to paste on my wall and needed to receive eight stitches. It is the biggest scar on my body and it reminds me of that time when I was desperate for the angsty awesome of 90's rock. 1993 was the year music changed from the poppy-WTF 80's cheese into something solid, new and powerful. The kids of the 90's were lucky to have had such a creative bunch of kick-ass musicians on the radio and on a radio who didn't entirely care about corporate sponsors.

This Saturday a group of Boston bands are getting together at the Rosebud Diner in Somerville to celebrate the fateful year. Promising to play songs by: Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Nirvana, Belly, REM, Cracker, Morphine, James, New Order and The Breeders.
