DEEPER INTO MOVIES PRESENTS…
25 Anniversary screening of Nirvana Unplugged in New York

Unplugged wasn't Nirvana's last concert. Just one week after it wrapped they'd resume the American leg of the In Utero tour and then head to Europe early the following year for two months of additional shows. But in many ways, the show felt like their final statement to the world. The vibe was dark before they even walked on since Kurt Cobain insisted that the stage look like a funeral, complete with lilies and black candles. Joined by touring guitarist Pat Smear and cellist Lori Goldston, the group skipped over nearly all of their obvious hits in favor of covers like David Bowie's «The Man Who Sold the World,» The Vaselines' «Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam» and no less than three Meat Puppets songs, where they were joined by bandleaders Cris and Curt Kirkwood themselves. Near the beginning, Kurt delivered a chilling rendition of «Come as You Are,» repeating the line «no, I don't have a gun» through gritted teeth, a moment that became very hard to watch in light of later events. The show wraps up with «All Apologies» and a cover of Lead Belly's «In The Pines,» which they renamed «Where Did You Sleep Last Night.» It's hard to think of a more powerful double shot from any live concert in the entire 1990s, or perhaps even the entire history of rock & roll.
