Nirvana/Pearl Jam Tribute Bands - Special event!

Waif Me is Calgary's Nirvana tribute band and its pretty rare to actually see them live, as they don't play too often. The Pearl Jam tribute band is called Five Against One.

Voodoo Lounge has a dance floor. If you like anything to do with 90's grunge rock, you'll love this.

The table is reserved for us. Just look for the Meetup sign on the table. Come early and try the gluten-free food that the Voodoo Lounge serves.

    great evening

    Those were the best Nirvana and Pearl Jam cover bands I've ever seen! Okay.... the only Nirvana and Pearl Jam cover bands I've ever seen but nonetheless I was impressed. Having seen the real things it was like being in a time warp going back to the origins of grunge.
    I think Nirvana is one of the hardest bands to cover so I'll give Waif Me bonus marks for degree of difficulty....I mean how many other bands sound like Nirvana!?!?!? For die-hard Nirvana fans who left before Waif Me's second set, you missed out on some In Utero plus Bleach (before they were famous) and a 3 man mosh pit.

    I couldn't believe it was Five Against One's first show. I could definitely believe it was Waif Me's first show. Not sure about the dresses...maybe they should focus less on wardrobe and more on rehearsal! Overall a fun night.

    Ive never been there before, great place! :)
    I was surprised I liked the first band better than Nirvana! First band had a better singer I thought. Looking forward to the next event! :)

    Voodoo Lounge is a pretty cool place on 16th Ave. They have gluten free options and 39 cent prawns on Tuesdays. Fun times with the gang, thanks Michelle.

    Hey guys, just a reminder to get here early , by 8:15. After that may be difficult to get a seat or even in the door. Better early than too late!

    If anyone is interested in carpooling from the south, let me know. I am willing to drive or would buy a couple drinks for the driver if someone else wanted to drive

    January 20, 2013

      Can I carpool with you? I will give you money for gas.

    Michelle, do you know which band is playing first? or what time slots each have? I really like some of Nirvanna's, its not as hard as Pearl Jam ;)

      I've heard different times of the exact time the show will start. I've heard 9 or 9:30. With this many people signed up, and how packed the place will be that night, I'd recommend getting here early! The 2 bands playing will alternate sets: Two sets each. Five against one first , then WAIFME , Five against one, WAIFME. Can't wait!!
