Coinciding with the 25 year anniversary of Nirvana/ Sonic Youths legendary show in Sir Henrys, Cork Central Library is hosting a fanzine exhibition titled Sunny Days Are Here Again.

According to exhibition co-ordinator Siobhan Bardsley: "These are fascinating records of that time in Cork. They reviewed gigs, demo tapes, soccer matches, and kept us informed of the local goings-on. It made the music scene a close community"

Available in the library for the duration of the exhibition will be a one off zine Circa'91 the Zine edited by Anto Dillon of Loserdom zine and designed by Fiona O' Mahony. The zine features tales from that legendary Nirvana gig as well as about the Cork music scene of the time by some of the active participants such as Morty McCarthy, Jim Comet, Shane Fitzsimons, Sean Fitzgerald and others. It also features photographs taken by NME photographer Ed Sirrs who traveled over with journalist Keith Cameron to cover the gig. Those photographs would go on to become some of the most iconic images of Nirvana.
