The Fluid+King Left+The Overcasters
Denver's the Fluid are one of the umpteen bands Nirvana opened for in the 80s, just to be chewed up and spit out of the 90's grunge machine. The first non-Northwestern act to sign to Sub Pop, the Fluid are best remembered for adrenaline-fueled live shows, falsetto vocal hooks and turning Nirvana onto Nevermind producer Butch Vig. Although the Fluid currently have no albums in print (though Glue is mandatory for grunge-era footnote collectors), Sub Pops 20th anniversary festival last year prompted a reunion of all five original members, who will perform tonight. With the King Left and the Overcasters.
