MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin museum is exploring punk, alternative and grunge music recorded and produced in Madison in the 1980s and 1990s.
The exhibit is called "Smart Sounds/Alt Music/Mad Scenes" and it runs from June 19 to September 15 at the Wisconsin Historical Museum in Madison.
It's expected to explore how the music being played, recorded and produced in Madison during those decades created a music scene with national impact.
The exhibit centers around Madison's Smart Studios, starting with its founding in 1983, its rise to fame in the 1990s and its closing in 2010.
Bands like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Madison's own Grammy-nominated band Garbage recorded there.
