Full Show Friday: Nirvana 4/10/90 Blind Pig, Ann Arbor, MI

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week.. Nirvana! 
This Full Show Friday is going to toss it back to a little band from the Pacific Northwest that didn't do much except, you know, change the course of popular music exponentially. Nirvana is up today and this show from 1990 is a great one. Compiled for Youtube, the video puts you right on the stage and the sound is better then could possibly be hoped for. Kurt's bass in particular is bumping for this full set, keeping things rock solid amongst the noise.

This is before the band hit it big and they are on their Bleach tour. You can hear and see some magic on this small stage as the band was yet to hit it big and still (relatively) happy and hungry. Digging through the set for some highlights; we love the opening "School" slamming with aggression, two of our favorite covers from the band "Love Buzz" and "Molly's Lips" as well as a mega "Spank Thru" a powerful "Negative Creep" hits hard as well. There is something engaging about the Bleach album and today's live show is a great example of that era in Nirvana's career.
