The Performance Before the Punch
By now, you've surely seen the scene at Trees on October 19, 1991, when Nirvana performed at the late club on Elm Street and the Greatest Concert Ever deteriorated into an infamous onstage brawl. (I know, you were there -- you and 148,924 other people.) But what you probably haven't seen is the rest of the show, which was, in fact, pretty amazing. Well, just yesterday someone posted to YouTube the entirety of the concert, a snippet from which we're including below till someone removes the link. It's almost like being there. Oh, yeah. I forgot: You were there. Of course you were. --Robert Wilonsky
