19-year-old uncovers lost photos of Nirvana’s first ever gig

nirvana trio

(From Daily Mail) A teenager has uncovered a piece of music history with the discovery of never-seen-before photos of Nirvana playing their first gig during a party at her father’s home.

Although Kurt Cobain turned 20 the month before Nirvana’s first show, the images show the Smells Like Teen Spirit singer looking baby-faced.

The photos were made public when the 19-year-old girl tweeted pictures from the show in March of 1987 with the caption: ‘Pictures of my dad and Kurt Cobain playing together back in the day.’

Maggie Poukkula’s father is Tony Poukkula and his home in Raymond, Washington, hosted guitarist Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic and then-drummer Aaron Burckhard for Nirvana’s first-ever concert in 1987.

The elder Poukkula went to high school with Cobain and although he was never a member of the band, he did sit in with them that night on a few Led Zeppelin cover tunes, Rolling Stone reported.

After finding the rare pictures inside her father’s biographies of Cobain and Nirvana, the younger Poukkula had to asked her dad if the photos were from Nirvana’s first-ever concert.

She said: ‘I had no idea that those were during Nirvana’s first concert.’

‘My dad showed me them a while back, but he never mentioned that’s what was going on in the photos.

‘I found out because of all the articles.

‘I didn’t realize it was such a historical thing.

‘I thought they were just cool pictures of my dad and Kurt jamming together.’
