By the way...Courtney Love was booed by some in the audience >>>

I'm feeling a little negative on kurt this year... idk, a lot of it having to do with a woman who had to grow up without her dad. I'm seeing that in my own life and the effects it has. I'm sure Frances will be fine, but she never got to really know him, and her tweet kinda made my heart ache a little for her.

Wow... they sure did.

I wonder if Kurt would have been proud.. as they claim... maybe he would have thought it was all bullshit.

I Saw Nirvana Play to Two Hundred People. In 2014.

Nirvana with Joan Jett - "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

First of all, I'm pretty hammered, which is only semi-acceptable in the real world. But that's not where I came from. The place that I just left was total fantasy, where an all-star cast of musicians gathered around to help eulogize and celebrate a great band that disappeared a little too soon. With booze. And lots of it. Oh yeah, they played a shit ton of songs too. And it has been a long, long, long time.

Directly after their induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, and Krist Novoselic trucked it on over to Saint Vitus, a 230 cap room in Brooklyn to play an intimate, invite only show of all Nirvana songs at the venue. I heard about the set at around 9PM that night, and confirmed with several sources before leaving the Godflesh show I was attending (yes, one legendary band for another) to head over. I was lucky and made it in. Most did not.

After setting up tons upon tons of gear, more than I have ever seen in the popular Brooklyn venue, Grohl, Smear, and Novoselic took the stage with Joan Jett and kicked it off the right way with "Smells like Teen Spirit." The room full of jaded invite-only attendees went fucking apeshit, understandably. Jett gave tribute to the fallen Kurt Cobain on stage, as did all of the guest stars throughout the night: Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), John Mccauley (Deer Tick), and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth). The 15+ song set spanned the entirety of Nirvana's career, with breaks to swap out vocalists/guitarists and for quick, whispered lessons on how the songs went. Maccauley and Grohl seemed the most prepared, but to be fair maybe the pint glass of Makers Mark was Novoselic's handicap.

Nirvana with Annie Clark - "Heart Shaped Box"

"That's the middle part of completely different song," Dave Grohl quipped to Novoselic, smiling before breaking into another track.

Everyone was seemingly zonked out of their minds at the venue, including a teetering Annie Clark and a giggly crowd pogoing along to the Seattle band's classic output. I joined, and tried my best not to slam into Mascis, Carrie Brownstein, Butch Vig, Jack Endino and countless others as I maneuvered around the venue. I did OK, but was too knee deep in whiskey to really take score.

Hands down the best moments go to mega-ripper J Mascis, who tore through "School" and "Penny Royal Tea," solos and all. What a fucking guitar god. Kim's vocal only performance of "Aneurysm" was similiarly badass and inspired.

In all, an insane evening that I never thought I would ever see in my lifetime; the members of Nirvana reforming to play their old favorites. It was all a big, whiskey-soaked dream. Shit this cool doesn't happen in real life, does it? "

I'm curious about her childhood, parents, and the children of God cult.

Great to see St. Vincent join in on this performance.

He was vocal about supporting women, their rights, and equality. I don't know if he ever specifically labeled himself as a feminist.

Cobain was a stark contrast from SP's give homophobes, racists, and sexists freedom of speech garbage that they promote.

Here's an article >>>

That's generally what I remember reading about it the past and I knew he was associated with the riot grrrl movement. I just didn't know if he ever actually came out and used the word "feminist" but it's obvious by his actions and words that he supported equality in general.

It's a shame he's gone.

How did SP ever promote freedom of speech from Homophobes, racists or sexists? Seems to me they've always been against that kind of thing. They've had endless females in the band and by your account, even a lesbian.

Sounds like you're still butthurt about the Monte thing and grasping for straws

Surprisingly not shit. Like Mono though I'm sure it will be the only good song on the album. I hope I'm wrong.

amoergosum 04-23-2014 04:42 AM

I think I've heard that melody of the chorus before...with the same rhythm...can't remember the song...anyone?

fuzzyroes 04-23-2014 10:49 PM

She can still rock the bad-ass screams after all of these years. Saw her live in the summer, nailed all the old hits.

I'm surprised her voice isn't shot to hell by now like Corgans
