Watch NIRVANA Live at Off the Record in San Diego, 1991

Ed Sirrs

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.
