Members of Fucked Up, Gallows, Tokyo Police Club to Play Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" 144 Times in a Row
A number of Ontario rockers will get together at the Toronto Underground Cinema to perform Nirvana's chart-topping anthem a whopping 144 times in a row. The October 1 performance, titled A Brief History Of Rebellion, will feature a rotating cast of musicians, including members of Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up, Woodhands, Gallows, One Hundred Dollars, the Flatliners and Junior Battles, as well as Buck 65, D-Sisive. Even more musicians will be announced in the coming weeks.
If you're feeling up to it, audience members are also being encouraged to participate in the toast to the grunge tune. "Lyrics will be provided," a statement explains, "but no one will need them."
A Brief History Of Rebellion, which is being presented by Juicebox, runs as part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a series of all-night events taking place throughout Toronto on October 1 to celebrate the arts.
UPDATE: The entire event will be streamed live on AUX and the Toronto Star.
