Party Like It's 1993

17 years ago tonight -- December 3, 1993 -- I was sitting at the UNO Lakefront Arena watching Nirvana in concert. Though of course they were never my favorite band, Nirvana were no doubt the top rock dogs of the early '90s - the only band my younger friends are jealous of me for having seen in concert. (In some cases, they're the only band I grew up listening to that my younger friends have actually heard of.) So, to mark the occasion here's an embarrassing little medley from the garage rock vaults.

I give you "Heart Shaped Box" and "Rape Me" as performed by me, David Foster (vocals), Mike Lujan (guitar), and Daniel Leavengood (drums) in Mitchell Gruich's garage back in 1996.

Before you say anything, yes, I know how terrible we sounded...but it's not like we were trying to win on American Idol or anything. Sometimes it just feels good to scream. :) If it really left a bad taste in your mouth, try washing it out with the original.

Oh, to be this young and angst-ridden again.
