Concert poster collector and Nirvana specialist Scott Mussell is announcing a search for this poster advertising the bands concert in Boise, Idaho at the beginning of 1991. “I’ve never seen one in person so I don’t know what size this flyer is, it might be a handbill” Mussell notes. The gig occurred in the early stages of ‘91 before the band had completed their second album Nevermind and before Dave Grohl joined the group. “It’s really the calm before the storm, it’s not much longer down the line that Nirvana is the biggest band on the planet” Mussell remarks. The show took place at The Zoo and the flyer features an early promo photo of the band. Mussell is offering $250 for an example of this poster and is eager to hear more about the show “There’s not a lot of documentation of this gig. I’d love to hear more about what they played that night and hear an attendees review, I’ll always pay a premium for that type of provenance” Mussell notes. If you have an example of this flyer or attended the show contact Mussell at 515.707.7250 anytime or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Concert poster collector and Nirvana specialist Scott Mussell is seeking this flyer from the bands appearance in Hoquiam, WA at Eagle Hall Dec 21, 1988. The band played as the headliners with fellow Aberdeen, WA band Attica and Psychlodds. "The story goes that Kurt played in his underwear at this show and had put lipstick all over his neck in protest to the stereotype that rural Washingtonians were red necks" Mussell notes. The show was only the 21st they played since settling on the name Nirvana, all occurring in 1988. "I've not seen one of these in person but from photos it appears to be an 8.5x11" flyer but could be smaller" Mussell notes adding "It's a really neat piece and an important artifact of the bands career- I'm especially interested in finding a one owner example with good provenance."
