Fearless Music Exhibit

Presented by Bainbridge Island Historical Museum at Bainbridge Island Historical Museum, Bainbridge Island WA

Fearless Music Exhibit

You think you know grunge music? Think again. Our new exhibit, Fearless Music, explores four decades (1980-2018) of a vibrant, independent teen music scene on Bainbridge Island.

Fearless Music explores nearly four decades (1980 – 2018) of a vibrant, independent teen music scene on Bainbridge Island. During this time, the Island has been a breeding ground for creative, curious and resourceful youth whose music has influenced and also reflects regional and national sounds.

Many people are familiar with Seattle’s iconic grunge music scene pioneered by local bands such as Malfunkshun and March of Crimes. People may not know that many other accomplished bands have emerged from the Island. Diverse in style, they all share an intrepid DIY approach. Multi-talented and hard-working, the teens compose and produce their own music, book and manage concerts on and off the island, design band graphics and write fanzines.

Collectively, these fearless musicians and their fans have established an alternative culture that produces diverse music and provides a productive outlet for many local teens.

Head to the Historical Museum Memorial Day to check out the exhibit!
