Chrome Ghost as Nirvana- Press Club, Sacramento Ca. 10/31/18 Canon HFG40

After trick or treating with the kids, I hustled over to The Press Club to see the halloween covers show. Man, it was packed! I wish the bands saw this size of crowd when they played their own songs!
Anyway, here is Chrome Ghost doing their sludgy versions of Nirvana classics. It was fun.
Jim Mclain also filmed the show and tried to edit our angles together and it didn’t work out.. thanks for trying! Now you have 2 videos of the show to enjoy.

Mudhoney-Castaic Lake, Castaic Ca. 9/26/92 xfer from Hi8 Master

So this entire show is a long story- thanks to Scott Kennberg, I was able to get a pass. I thought it was a filming pass, but it was actually a backstage pass. It was really odd, being a 25 year old kid, given access to backstage with Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and Kurt/Courtney/Frances. It made me feel pretty strange, so I bailed after a beer.

Anyway, here is Mudhoney’s set. They were GREAT. Encore is Fang’s “The Money Will Roll Right In” w/Kurt on guitar.

And here is Kurt’s solo performance. Yes, that is my goofy ass voice saying “give me a break”.

Nirvana- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca 6/17/91 xfer from Master Audiotape

So I tried to video the show and I was told NO. I tried to track down John from Gold Mountain, and he appeared to be avoiding me. So, I snuck up into the upper seats of the Crest to set up my mics to at least get an audio recording. Glad I did- sounds pretty damned good.

Nirvana – Cattle Club, Sacramento 2/12/90 2 cam McLain edit full set

Here’s something cool, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of this show. For the first time ever, here is Jim McLain’s edit of the full Nirvana set. There is another 2 camera edit out on Youtube, but that one is a totally different edit and it has different(inferior) audio. THIS one is the one that was shown at The Crest a couple of times.

A funny story about this show- I always used to ask the bands for permission to video. I went up to Kurt(remember, this is pre-internet. it was not easy to find a band photo) and asked him “Are you in Tad?”. He said no, he was in that other band. He gave me the OK to film and wrote his aunt’s address on a slip of paper… which I transferred to my personal contacts book and threw the original slip of paper away! D’oh! Kudos go out to Mark Martin for strongly encouraging me to go film this show- he was the early adopter of grunge among our circle of friends.
