C’est mardi que le Museum of Pop Culture a tenu sa classique soirée-bénéfice et le parcours impressionnant de la formation Alice in Chains était à l’honneur. Plusieurs artistes de renom se sont joints à Alice in Chains pour souligner l’oeuvre de ces pionniers du grunge et pour participer à la collecte de fonds de la fondation du musée. Les performances de Korn et de Mastodon nous ont grandement impressionnés; quelles seront vos préférées?
