From the History of Grunge: Nirvana LIVE at @RadioShack Circa 1988!

Before Nirvana’s debut album Bleach was released but around the time they were recording for that album, they performed a 17-minute set at the local RadioShack in their hometown of Aberdeen, Washington! The decor is wholly nostalgic, and check out those red+yellow+green traffic light effects too! I also imagine the VHS recorder was shoulder-slung and probably weighed over 20lbs.

(Humblebrag I saw Nirvana in 1989 on their first national tour and have the concert ticket stub to prove it!)

Previously unseen in its entirety… Thanks to the filmer, Radioshack, and Dana Bong for the additional camera work. If you happen have a Nirvana tape that you recorded that has been sitting in a closet/attic/basement for 25+ years, let me know. Happy to help get it properly archived and shared with the world.
