Footage From Final Nirvana LA Concert

Footage From Final Nirvana LA Concert
Dave Markey, the director of '1991: The Year Punk Broke' recently posted footage of Nirvana's final Los Angeles show with this note:
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

 

The footage is a great snapshot of this show, with this acoustic ending mirroring some of the tracks made famous by their MTV Unplugged set.
