Today Reverb Recommends You Donate to the Susie Tennant Fund and Help the Woman Who Threw the Nevermind Release Party

Kirk Weddle
Twenty years ago, a woman named Susie Tennant was working regional radio PR for the David Geffen Company, and hosted a party for a pop band fronting as punk rockers and their new record, Nevermind. And while there surely will never be another Nirvana, people who know Ms. Tennant will tell you there will also never be another Susie. Roundly respected, loved, and admired, Tennant has left a trail of appreciators during her time at DGC, Sub Pop, and her current gig with Town Hall Seattle.

Next week, when Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic hosts a party to commemorate Nevermind's 20th anniversary--with performances from The Long Winters, the Presidents, and many others--he'll also be returning a favor. Proceeds from the Sept. 20 show at EMP are going to the Susie Tennant Fund, set up to help Tennant and her family financially as she goes through chemotherapy and battles ovarian cancer.

Although the show is sold out, you can still give money to the fund over here. You'll feel good about it. Susie's one of the good guys.

Good luck, Susie!
