Video Flashback: Nirvana in Hoboken back in 1989
Almost no one remembers that Nirvana played a huge set over at the former Maxwell’s in Hoboken back in 1989! Heck – most people don’t even remember 1989! (We re-uploaded since Vimeo took our videos hostage.)
VIDEO: Nirvana at Maxwells
Here’s the video from 1989. I think Nirvana was one of the best bands of this generation.
The audio quality is absurdly poor, but it’s nice to see this rare footage. Over twenty minutes of craptastic sounds. You’ll recognize some of their hits towards the end.

Stumbled across a few photos of classic grunge band Nirvana back when they had their historic Hoboken visit in June of 1989 (can you believe that? 31 years ago?)
The left photo on the Hoboken waterfront must have been snapped the day of their show at Maxwell’s (from Twitter user Kcobaindaily) – and the photo on the right was from their show later that night (Flickr user pauliewantsacracker).
Kurt Cobain must have gotten his laundry cues from Hoboken411 – as he wore that exact same shirt in practically every show!
