Last night, Seattle’s Experience Music Project celebrated 20 years of Nirvana’s Nevermind with a full cover show. The event combined heavy hitters like The Presidents of the United States of America with local acts like Valis to run through every song on the seminal album with some non-album cuts as bonus tracks. As if that wasn’t enough, original bassist Krist Novoselic joined in for “On a Plain.”

We’ve got videos of seven of the songs below, including the tunes by POTUS/Krist and an appearance by ex-Guns ‘n’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, who was reportedly one of the last people to see Kurt Cobain alive. Check out a selection of videos below, with thanks to Consequence of Sound for digging up some of these.
