Cool! Video of Dave Grohl Playing with Nirvana for the First time

It was October 11, 1990, when a refugee from a DC band called Scream–a kid, really–played his first gig with Nirvana. Things worked out well for everyone (except for Kurt, but that had nothing to do with Nirvana’s drummer issues.)

Take a look at this footage from the North Shore Surf Club in Olympia, Washington. (Via The NME)
