Watch Nirvana Gig for Two People in ‘Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck’ Clip

Yes, Nirvana became the biggest rock band in the world for a period in the ’90s, but it wasn’t always packed houses. In fact, it sometimes wasn’t even packed rooms. In a new video that surfaced online from the upcoming Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck documentary, we see the band playing a gig in a house to just two people.

The voice over narration, we hear Cobain state, “If we played together in the house for a couple of hours and if two people stopped by, we considered that a gig, you know, a show. We had an audience of two people, locals who hated our guts and thought it was terrible music.” To go along with the narration, we see Cobain and Krist Novoselic rocking out while the camera pans to two guys sitting against the wall.

The clip also features present-day Novoselic reflecting on his earliest experiences with Cobain and discussing that even before he was a rock star, there were signs of his true artistry just begging for a canvas to be expressed. Check out the video above.

As for the Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck documentary, it’s set to make it’s TV premiere on HBO on May 4. The film has already screened a few film festivals and will receive theatrical screenings in the next few weeks before the HBO premiere. Check out a prior video clip from the documentary here and the official trailer at this location.

In related news, in an interview with the New York Times, who premiered the video above, it’s revealed that the taped conversation with Dave Grohl that was left out of earlier screenings of the film is not expected to surface. Director Brett Morgen had previously stated that the interview came late in the process and was not featured in the original cut. He now tells the paper that it’s not expected to be a DVD extra either.
