CalJam 18: A Spectrum of Sounds and a Bit of Nirvana

CalJam 18: A Spectrum of Sounds and a Bit of Nirvana

CalJam 18 put festivalgoers in a state of Nirvana on Saturday, Oct. 6, in San Bernardino. A six-song tribute set reunited bassist Krist Novoselic, guitarist Pat Smear and Dave Grohl on the drum kit and saw Deer Tick’s John McCauley and none other than Joan Jett take over Kurt Cobain's vocals on hits including "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "In Bloom" and "All Apologies." Before that, Foo Fighters played a furious yet nuanced set, and an array of potent artists including Iggy Pop and his Post Pop Depression band, Garbage, Tenacious D and Greta Van Fleet rocked two stages amidst a carnival of rides and amusements.
