NIRVANA – ” Live In New Orleans ” December 3rd, 1993

Nirvana’s brief stint with superstardom began with the release of their groundbreaking, smash hit album “Nevermind” in September 1991. For two-and-a-half years the group dominated rock radio, with many calling Kurt Cobain the voice of his generation (though the man himself was not particularly fond of this designation). Nirvana only made one stop in New Orleans during that time—a December 3rd, 1993 concert at the UNO Lakefront Arena—but fortunately there’s a decent audience recording of the show floating around online.

All but the night’s first two songs can be heard on the recording, which provides a fascinating taste of the band’s live sound. The band’s raw style came through quite nicely on their albums, but apparently it was even more pronounced in concert.
