THROWBACK: Dave Grohl’s First Gig with Nirvana

As far as #TBT goes, does it really get much better than this?

This clip of Nirvana playing the North Shore Surf Club in Olympia, Wash. in late 1990 is the first gig they played with new drummer Dave Grohl after Chad Channing left the band.  The rest, as they say, is history.

It’s amazing to see the band in a small gig like this when in a little over a year’s time, they’d become the biggest band in the world.
