Nirvana, Amherst, Mass, Kurt in a Dress


27th April 1990, Amherst Massachusetts. This is the day after the Pyramid Club gig where the band trashed their gear in frustration. This time, at a tiny college gig where the makeshift stage was only 2ft high, 10 minutes before they were due to go on stage as we were hanging around the band's van which doubled as their dressing room, Kurt turned to their PR, Janet Billig, and said "Do you have a dress I can borrow?". Well she certainly did and here is Kurt wearing it, playing his heart out and not bothering with the stage but playing IN the audience. Note the air guitar grimace on the right and hand shapes on the left of him!
