On October 24, 1991, Nirvana played at Off the Record in San Diego, and an amateur videographer shot it standing on a ladder. The sound is kinda shitty, but Kurt’s eye contact is mesmerizing. I was 11 years old at the time, still two years away from discovering Nevermind and falling in love. This band needs no introduction, but I do want to say, there was nothing like listening to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as an actual teenager in the 90s. I wish I was here.
This was supposed to be an acoustic show, with instruments supplied by the record store, but since they didn’t have any left-handed guitars, the band ended up using their own instruments and playing an electric set.livenirvana.com
