Smells Like the ’90s
8 p.m. Saturday. Portland House of Music, 25 Temple St., Portland, $10 in advance, $15 day of show, 21-plus. portlandhouseofmusic.com
We don’t want to shock anyone, but 1990 was 30 years ago! Do you miss the ’90s, especially when it comes to music? Revisit the glory days of grunge by hitting Smells Like the ’90s at Portland House of Music, where you’ll hear performances by three tribute bands. Yellow Ledvedder will slather you with Pearl Jam, The Stone Temple Posers will hit you with Stone Temple Pilots tunes, and Priceless Advice will entertain you with their homage to Nirvana. It’s time to bust out those ripped jeans, flannel shirts, thrift shop cardigans and clunky black boots. When you get inside, take a whiff, because it just might smell like teen spirit.
