It is rumored that the show was recorded.

  • A new stage was built in the courtyard, primarily with the Nirvana show in mind, but the show was moved to the Senior House basement due to rain.
  • The show was loud, but good, according to an attendee.
  • During the show, Krist ripped one or two bones off the wall from a sign spelling out "Sport Death" (a Senior House motto) and used one to play half of a song on his bass. He ended up sarcastically apologizing when a few members of the audience got upset, according to attendees.
  • It is rumored the Nirvana's concert was shut down at 00:30 and Novoselic got upset because he wanted to keep playing.
  • There was about 100 people at the concert, according to an attendee.
