Nirvana – JC Dobbs 10/1/91

White Trash  

Nirvana from JC Dobbs the last tour before they became big rock stars. Their third time at Dobbs from October 1st 1991 with the Melvins. I wish I had taped the Melvins but I unfortunately didn’t. It was a little weird to me that Nirvana became the big band at the time I was way more into Mudhoney and thought they would be huge. Shows what I know.

But one of the things I respected Nirvana allot was paying homage to the bands that influenced them. Having Pat Smear join as a 2nd guitar player and wearing a Daniel Johnston shirt on mTV are just a few examples. At this show they did a good mix of Nevermind, Bleach and other stuff. According to a site dedicated to Nirvana shows it was reported Kurt was feeling well so that may be why they didn’t do an encore.

    The Melvins did not actually play the show for some reason. Das Damen played instead. they blew. I bought the ticket because i wanted to see The Melvins. I liked Nirvana, but I wasn’t a HUGE fan. I was pretty bummed. we had to wait about an hour and a half between bands. when Kurt finally got on stage, Jamie Mahon called him a rock star. KC seemed to have a pretty shitty attitude. Dave Grohl was a monster. I’m glad i was there. probably the last small club date they ever did.
