I was speaking with Aaron Burckhard, the first drummer of Nirvana, earlier this year about that exact event! I called him up and we had an hour conversation or so about Kurt and Nirvana because it was around Kurt’s 20th Anniversary of his passing and I recorded the entire thing. This is a quote from what Aaron said:
"What I remember is everybody was too scared to come into the living room, I don’t know why, and Krist was hammered drunk, he liked to drink wine. First he jumped, no, he got a hold of vampire blood. He poured vampire blood all over himself, and then he jumped through the window, into the kitchen, and out of the window and kept doing that. I remember that I had to drive the van, it had all of our equipment, everybody was hammered. I ended up driving all of our equipment home that night." - Aaron Burckhard, 2014.

Nirvana never performed in Anaheim, but they did play all throughout others parts of California/Southern California. ( San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, Daly City, San Diego, Venutra, Inglewood, Sacramento ) - It’s actually where Krist Novoselic was living as a young child for a short while, close around Compton and Gardena. Even Chad Channing (Nirvana’s drummer) was born in Santa Rosa, California.
Nirvana went into a little rehearsal space in April of 1991 to rehearse songs from ‘Nevermind’ before recording them in May, 1991. This was in Burbank, California. Throughout the month of May, 1991 - Nirvana recorded their second album ‘Nevermind’ in Van Nuys and Burbank, California at the Sound City Studios.
Kurt Cobain rehearsed and jammed on a lot of tracks in Southern California. It’s actually where a few songs from ‘In Utero’ and some of Dave Grohl’s early Foo Fighters songs were created. Nirvana had many photo-shoots and interviews in 1991/1992 and 1993 in California/Southern California. A lot of Nirvana history took place in California.
