Back on December 13, 1993, Nirvana filmed a concert at Seattle’s Pier 48 that was aired on MTV as “Live and Loud”. Tomorrow alongside the 20th anniversary In Utero reissue that show is getting a special DVD release. Today, MTV/VH1 have shared two never-before-seen rehearsal videos of the band performing “Very Ape” and “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter”. “Very Ape” features Kurdt pounding on the skins.
And if you’ve been thinking about getting Nirvana’s smiley face logo tattooed on your skin lately, TOMORROW IS YOUR FUCKIN’ DAY! If you’re around Seattle, Long Beach, or West Babylon, New York tomorrow (September 24th), you could get one for free. File this under “shit that wouldn’t happen if Kurdt was still alive”.
Oh yeah, if you buy the 20th anniversary In Utero reissue (via Universal) or the Live and Loud DVD at one of the three participating stores, you can get a FREE tattoo of the Nirvana logo. I’m hoping this is their way of marking all the posers cuz anyone who wants a fuckin’ Nirvana tattoo is FIRED!
It’s first come, first served, and tattoos are available for eight hours at each location. Bring a receipt to prove that you bought one of the new releases. You must be at least 21, and no, you can’t get the tattoo anywhere “explicit”.
