Say what you will about this year's Best Music Poll, the hippie kids sure love them some Matisyahu, who plays the Pavilion tonight. BMP is always an occasion for some of us older dudes -- you know, us early-30s geezers -- to sit around telling the interns about the good old days. So here goes.
It's probably the most famous WFNX show ever: depending on who's telling the story, it was either the night Nevermind came out or the night before -- Google isn't much help here -- and the band that was about to break punk or whatever was playing a gig at Axis for the station that had been the first (there still weren't that many) to play "Smells Like Teen Spirit." MTV was there, and the clips below -- in crappier fidelity -- were on their site for years. Anyhoo, the show sold out, there was an all-ages show the next day. In our recollection, they never played Boston again. (The closest they came was Fitchburg, after In Utero.) So here it is, until Courtney makes them take it down: live, that night, sold out . . . Nirvana!
