February 20 Officially to Be Declared Kurt Cobain Day
Kurt Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen will officially declare February 20 as Kurt Cobain Day, Mayor Bill Simpson has confirmed.

"Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements," the proclamation reads (via KXRO).

As the same source indicates, the proclamation will be read on February 12, while the festivity is planned to develop into a Kurt Cobain Week. The event will not be a one-off celebration and will continue as an annual tradition.

Earlier this month, Aberdeen's neighboring city of Hoquiam has declared April 10 as Nirvana Day, paying tribute to the band's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction and the time Nirvana spent in the town. "They bring great honor, I think as I say, to our entire community," said Hoquiam mayor Jack Durney. "And I think that it's good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it's good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments."
