Last night, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hosted the 29th annual Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Performers included Hall and Oats, KISS, Cat Stevens, and Nirvana. Fans had been wondering who was going to front what I believe to be one of the greatest bands ever -- no one could do what Kurt Cobain did. It had to be different enough but honor him in the right way. And then we learned it was going to be Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, Lorde, and St. Vincent singing different songs during the performance. Fans were nervous. It had to be great. It was going to be emotional. This was quite an eclectic mix fronting one of the best bands ever. Would it work? It did.
But Nirvana didn't stop there. After the Barclays show ended, they headed over to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to play a secret after-show at one of the neighborhood's most beloved but gritty venues -- the tiny Saint Vitus bar on Manhattan Avenue. Incredible.
