Nirvana: Never Before Seen Photos Of Kurt Cobain Accidentally Released On Twitter

Stacey Cole

Nirvana photos from their first-ever concert have emerged on the internet through a completely unexpected source - a teenager from Seattle who recently tweeted rare photos of Kurt Cobain and her dad jamming together in her father's previous house.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, a stunned Maggie conceded she did not anticipate the attention the photos would receive at the time of posting them online.

"I had no idea that those were during Nirvana's first concert. My dad never mentioned 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."

According to King5, the Tony Poukkula remembers the night distinctly. The conversation he had with his band's manager (who was also managing Nirvana at the time) is still fresh in his mind.

"He said, 'Do you mind if they [Nirvana] come down to one of your parties just to get their feet wet?' I said, 'Sure, anytime.' He said, 'What about Friday?' I said, 'Bring them on down, we're always there.'"
"I enjoyed recounting the story of Nirvana's first show entirely through their then manager Ryan Aigner plus Tony Poukkula and Duke Harner from the band Black Ice, who lived in the house in Redmond where it took place. They made it really personal – this sense of Nirvana having to be railroaded into playing, then being jumpy and nervous performing."
