Not content with induction at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, the surviving members of Nirvana have called on some girl-power for a hits-filled post-Hall set.
Brooklyn’s 350-capacity Saint Vitus venue hosted a secret show soon after the grunge titans were inducted into the Rock Hall at the nearby Barclays Center.

According to early reports, the likes of Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) and John McCauley of Deer Tick joined Nirvana on stage for the surprise Greenpoint gig. The supergroup belted-out 19 songs and wrapped-up at 4am.
Just hours earlier, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear and the late Kurt Cobain were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Novoselic told guests at the Rock Hall ceremony: “Nirvana fans come up to me every day and say, ‘thank you for the music,’ and when I hear that, that reminds me of Kurt Cobain, so I want to say, ‘thank you Kurt Cobain,’ and I wish he was here tonight.”
