A Punch-Up at a Nirvana Show

Some time back, I posted a clip of the infamous Nirvana show at Trees in Dallas, TX in which a bouncer beat Kurt Cobain's face for smashing the house's soundboard in a hissy fit. That was 1991. I was living in Dallas at the time, but was a few years too young to make it into the club. Boo for me. That bouncer, Turner Scott Van Blarcum, was in a band in Dallas called Ethyl Merman... until they received a cease and desist order from the late Ms. Merman's estate and changed their name to Pump'n Ethyl. He wrote a song about the incident called "Bleached."

Well, the whole show is now up on youtube. Here it is, in eight parts.
