August 6th, 1993 - Nirvana performs a benefit show at the King Performance Center in Seattle, Washington for The Gits’ Mia Zapata. It would be Nirvana’s last show as a three-piece before adding Pat Smear into the mix.

"We’re always doing benefits, we just played one for Mia Zapata. None of us knew her, but we thought, ‘this is where we live, and this is a terrible thing that happened.’ And it’s the least we can do, to play an hour, give something back to the community." - Krist Novoselic.

Do you have any information on Krist's Ibanez Black Eagle bass guitar?

I believe he owned several of those. One is at the HardRock cafe (in Seattle, unless they swapped them out recently or removed the one from the HardRock into the EMP) then another is at the EMP Museum. If you want to know other information about it, just ask!

An advertisement in Seattle, Washington for someone desperately wanting a “Hot Date” for the Nirvana and Pearl Jam ‘MTV Live and Loud’ show in 1993. Pearl Jam later pulled out of the show because of Eddie Vedder’s voice and band exhaustion.

It reads: "I have tickets for the MTV show! ….Wanna be my Hot Date? If you are female, attractive, a dance fiend, not afraid of strangers and ready to party like it’s 1994! Then call to tell me all about your qualifications."
