Watch St. Vincent, J Mascis, Kim Gordon, Joan Jett, & John McCauley play with Nirvana at their surprise post-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show
All the Nirvana love that's been going around the last few weeks culminated last night at the Rock and Roll Hall induction ceremony. But the real party got started when the surviving members of Nirvana (Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear) got sick of being bystanders and left the Barclays Center to kick off their own top secret post-induction show at Brooklyn's, Saint Vitus Bar.
They brought St. Vincent., Kim Gordon, and Joan Jett -- who performed with the band earlier in the night -- over with them, before bringing in a couple of less-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-friendly musicians to fill in for the late Kurt Cobain; J Mascis, and John McCauley of Deer Tick (who become Nirvana tribute band Deervana in their downtime).
This is supposedly the set-list.
Watch clips from the show below.
