Yesterday Dave Markey, director of 1991: The Year Punk Broke, posted this footage of one of Nirvana's last American shows:
20 years ago tonight (December 30, 1993) I stood on Kurt’s side of the stage at my hometown’s Los Angeles Forum and captured the last set I would see of this band. A band that I had worked with, toured with; people that I would call my friends. A band that both the world and myself really loved (can’t really say this has happened since.) Within just a few short months it would sadly all be over. Sharing a few songs here; a couple covers (Vaselines’ “Jesus” & Bowie’s “Man Who Sold The World”) and All Apologies. I’m glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991. www.wegotpowerfilms.com
Playing Nirvana songs [live today]? I think that’s different for [Dave and Krist] than it is for me. I know Nirvana’s a strange thing. It means a lot of things to a lot of people. I personally wouldn’t have a problem with it. Yeah, why the fuck wouldn’t we play Nirvana songs?! That’s my attitude. I get it, y’know, but I don’t know… for me it’s like, ‘Why wouldn’t we?’
Official Super-Deluxe CD releases:

I mean, my band’s great – but when you augment it with Nirvana, that’s greater.
Paul McCartney was joined by the surviving members of Nirvana at Safeco Field in Seattle last night. Here’s video of Sirvana playing "Helter Skelter."
