On May 14th, The Negative Creeps performed in support of Dan’s Legacy with funds raised to support “East Van Dan’s”, the charity’s drop-in workshop program in the Downtown Eastside and East Vancouver.
This fundraiser event had THE NEGATIVE CREEPS perform at The Red Room in Vancouver, BC promoting mental health awareness with the music of Nirvana in one unique concert for a cause.
This one-off send-up to the music of NIRVANA is being orchestrated by Vancouver singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rod Moore (THE ROD MOORE BAND, THE HANG-TEN HANGMEN), who had recently completed reading Dave Grohl’s autobiography and was affected by the depiction of Kurt Cobain’s struggles.
Moore was also affected by the book musically, having found himself immersed in NIRVANA’s music; he was inspired to put together an ensemble to perform these songs while shining a light on some of the issues which affected the band’s late frontman.
The fundraising event featured THE NEGATIVE CREEPS performing songs from “Nevermind”, “Bleach” and “In Utero”, along with sets by up-and-coming local acts WAX THEATRICS and IN THE CARDS.
