The visceral power of one of the most iconic bands in rock and roll first emerged in Aberdeen, WA, in the mid-80s. In amongst the now revered and widely recognised band scene in Seattle, Nirvana stood out clearly with Geffen watching closely. Their post-Sub-Pop period signalled the arrival of Dave Grohl, whose impact on their sound here is brutally apparent. Their performance on a triple-bill at Del Mar Fairgrounds in the Pat O’Brien Pavilion, San Diego, CA on 28th December 1991, for broadcast on Syndicated FM radio, finds Nirvana promoting their recently released Nevermind album, as guests of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Aside from being from their best period, this performance is the ultimate in ‘classic’ Nirvana.
