Twenty-five years ago today—on March 12, 1990—Nirvana played Vancouver’s Town Pump on a double-bill with fellow Seattle grunge-rockers Tad.
Remember that amazing gig?
I’ve been wracking my brain, trying to remember why I didn’t see Nirvana, and then I noticed an entry on the Town Pump strip ad just below the Tad/Nirvana ad:
A-ha! So there‘s the reason why I didn’t go, I’ll bet. The Beat Farmers had played a double-header on the weekend, and I was still too fried to contemplate a Monday night out.
A pox on Country Dick Montana and his irresistable musical charms!
