Ed Kowalczyk 

When: Sat., Oct. 8 2011

If you're feeling charitable, please consider this engagement with Ed Kowalczyk—the former frontman of Live, an act that somewhat successfully turned Kurt Cobain's legacy both overtly arty and commercial—Raleigh's official celebration of Nevermind's 20th anniversary. If you're feeling less charitable, though, this is an appearance by an exiled frontman of an occasionally interesting but mostly dismissible '90s rock act, attempting to remind those who remember "Lightning Crashes" that he released an abysmal solo record, predictably called Alive, just last year. Kowalczyk has had his moments during the last two decades; Alive, an attempt to cross over into rich Christian rock waters, isn't one. Namesake opens the $5 show at 6 p.m. —Grayson Currin
