In Utero

Like they did in 2011 with Nevermind, Nirvana will be giving their final studio album, 1993's In Utero, a 20th anniversary deluxe reissue this year. The reissue will include the original album (remastered), unreleased demos and b-sides from the era, and a full live concert (audio and video) of their December 13, 1993 concert on Pier 48 in Seattle. It will be released as a "super deluxe" version with three CDs and a DVD, a regular version (double CD or triple LP), and the concert DVD will also be released on its own. They all come out on September 24 via Universal.

Meanwhile, in slightly related news, here in the NYC-area (specifically Hoboken), we've been commemorating rock club Maxwell's, which closes this Wednesday (7/31). Many of the bands who played there back in the day, have returned this summer for a final show, but one band that played there and can't do that (for obvious reasons) is Nirvana. They played a show there in 1989 (that NY Mag discussed in their recent oral history of the club), and thanks to a good samaritan YouTube user, we can watch (almost) that entire show. A 20+ minute video from the Bleach-heavy set (with only a few songs missing) is below.

The second to last show is tonight with Lee Ranaldo, and it closes for good on Wednesday after a block party outside and indoor sets from The Bongos, The Individuals, and more. Earlier this week, Mission of Burma played, followed by Real Estate and The Feelies' Glenn Mercer.

Video below...

Nirvana? I've never heard of em.

Dear BV community,

I suck. Please accept this.

Posted by Max Horwich | July 30, 2013 7:06 PM

this is a good reason why Maxwell's is leaving town. this is the kind of crowd along with the Bennys and wall street douchebags hoboken is bringing in = good riddance = http://kertasy.smugmug.com/photos/swfpopup.mg?AlbumID=30760843&AlbumKey=vSQFxW

I was at that show in '89. So was FroHawk. And that tumblr girl from Foxygen.

This is where Nirvana rests in peace with me as one of the best loud indie rock bands ever. Not that after this they went downhill or anything, but for me the excitement and glory days are at this time.

And the funny thing is that Cobain wrote this album to specifically fit into the Seattle scene at the time, Mudhoney, Melvins, etc... This record is the sell-out, if you debate such things. They never sounded like this before or after Bleach. Go figure, I was duped. Do not care, love those tunes anyway.

@9:19 you imitate until you find your thing. That's how it works.

Yeah just what the world needs...a reissue of an album available at iTunes and as used and new cd copies all over the place.

'Gotta milk it for all it's worth, eh Love, Grohl, Novoselic, and I guess I gotta say Smear?

Courtney must be running low on coke/drug money.

I'm pretty sure that Curt Cobain killed himself because he was in love with Frohawk, and didnt have the balls to come forward about it.

WHAT DOES MAX HORWICH THINK ABOUT ALL THIS?

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 10:31 AM

Reading these comments shows why it get harder and harder to go out to shows these days - just too many dopey people out there that you have to put up with. They seem to know less and less about music and more about how to act retarded.

"Retarded" is so third grade.

Nirvana's definitely part of who I am, no matter how unlistenable Nevermind is.

The Pixies are definitely part of who I am, but I find Nirvana unlistenable.

Years ago on BV, you'd find some worthwhile commentary about actual bands, musicians, venues,etc... Now there's only immature idiots making pathetic attempts to be funny.

Also, I got old.

Posted by What happened to BV messageboards | July 31, 2013 2:42 PM

2:42, I've been on here for years. Since the beginning of hummus jokes, kit kat kathy, max horwich, etc. The comments have always been the same. I've been here for like 8 years, and they have always been like this.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 2:56 PM

And who can forget that line that was never, ever funny "What time does Daft Punk go on?". It's just people who know nothing about music but want to post something they think is witty but is really snarky and juvenile. In the last 8 years or so I may have read 2 or 3 funny comments.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 3:08 PM

141 How is Nevermind unlistenable? It's a classic album especially for the era which it was recorded and released. Is this just your way of trying to be cool? You failed miserably.

919 So stepping up your game is a sellout? I think not. Nevermind is a drastically better album than Bleach.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 3:14 PM

As bad as Nirvana is sour hummus is worse.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 3:24 PM

3:14, I used to listen to it all the time. But, WFNX killed it for me. They played so many of the songs regularly that I just can't listen to it anymore. LIke I'd hear 7 nirvana songs on the way to school and back everyday for the school year. Only alternative station too so I could never change it

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 3:26 PM

Remember when daft punk didn't release a album for 12 years, and released complete shit.

The real Nirvana needs a reissue of The Story of Simon Simopath.

Nirvana > Pearl Jam

I think that we can all agree on that

Hummus comments are not intended to be comical.
The hummus underground utilizes BV as a forum to discuss the latest chickpea news and also to share occasional recipes. We may crack an occasional hummus-based joke from time to time but our purpose here is much deeper.

Has anyone tried the new Tribe family sized 16oz tub of roasted garlic blend? It's on sale at my local bodega but I am slightly skeptical being I am a sabra kind of guy. I heard that the consistency of Tribe brand is a tad pasty and reminiscent of wood glue, but I am tempted to experiment.
Any commentary on this would be much appreciated.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 4:40 PM

Dude, new Tribe mash is purdy good - don't think about it, just buy.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 4:50 PM

Sabra > Tribe

NO CONTEST

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 4:51 PM

I am a long time Sabra fan, but I got a sample size of the new Tribe at a show recently and I was quite surprised by the new blend. I agree in the past the Tribe blend left quite a bit to be desired but the new recipe is pretty tasty.

I heard that Kurt Cobain really knew how to use his pita as a shovel and dig that hummus out.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 5:03 PM

Max Horwich hurry up with my damn pita.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2013 5:13 PM

Back in the 90's a lot of those Seattle grunge rockers were known to make huge excessive dips into the hummus. They were a pretty hardcore group.

Kurt Cobain was a true artist. not a poser like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and all these modern musicians that become famous for having trouble with the law.
