From four months before Cobain's death...
Here is previously-unseen footage from Nirvana's final Los Angeles gig. The footage was shot by filmmaker Dave Markey and discovered by him recently; he posted the video on YouTube on December 30th.
The concert took place on December 30th, 1993 and was the last from the band in LA before Cobain's death on April 5th, 1994. Markey wrote of the footage:
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.
