Sonic Evolution, the Seattle Symphony's annual event celebrating Seattle's rich musical history, took place last night at Benaroyal Hall. The first half of the evening featured a piece influenced by Kurt Cobain titled "Ashes," a Pearl Jam inspired piece "Beyond Much Difference," and finally another piece composed by Mike McCready titled "Waking The Horizon."  After the intermission was over the Chris Cornell-fronted Mad Season reunion and bonus surprise Temple Of The Dog reunion took place. Cornell, McCready, Barrett Martin, Matt Cameron, Duff McKagan, and the Seattle Symphony began with a trio of Mad Season songs, then later Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard took the stage for a few Temple of the Dog songs. During the evening, several other guests including Kim Virant (Lazy Susan) and Jeff Angell (Walking Papers), and Sean Kinney (Alice In Chains) also took the stage perform with the collective. The night ended on an emotional note -- the band performed Mad Season's "All Alone" using a recording of Layne Staley's haunting vocals.

The setlist and fan filmed video from the concert is available to view below. An excellent review of the show is posted here

The first authorized Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck debuted Saturday night at Sundance.  Cobain's estate gave director Brett Morgen unprecedented access to Cobain's archive which includes audio, video, photographs, notebooks, and more, though reportedly the only "never before heard" song in the film is Cobain's acoustic cover of the Beatles' "And I Love Her."

Much ado was made over the absence of commentary/interview clips from ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, however it wasn't an oversight, it was more of a scheduling issue with Grohl. Morgen told reporters that Grohl has participated in interviews for Montage of Heck, but due to time issues he was unable to include the footage in the version of the film that premiered on Saturday. Morgen suggested to reporters that he may re-edit the film at a later time to add in some commentary/insight from Grohl. Montage Of Heck is scheduled to premiere on HBO on May 4th.
