NIRVANA REUNION?! and/or NO FUCKING WAY

posted by on May 19 at 23:17 PM

First let me say, this is a text message, retrieved from my phone at 11:20 pm, May 19th, 2008. If this is TRUE, I don’t believe it. If it’s NOT true, well, then f*ck me for posting… either way, here it is:

Text: Msg: Can u believe it?! Supposedly, Nirvana is playing Sub Pop 20. Courtney Love buried the hatchet with the surviving members, and she’ll sing, with Pat Smear on guitar!

Courtney, R you fo’real?

a good way to judge the realness of this is to answer the obvious:

how much do you trust the source of this baffling text message?

Kelly,

Someone is pulling your leg. Did Megan Jasper send that text?

Foo Fighters DO have a mysterious gap in their tour on those dates - and are in Portland just before.

Completely unnecessary (rumor and photo). But if the folks at Sub Pop add The Grifters to the lineup, I'll gladly sit through Courtney playing Nirvana songs solo on a ukelele.

Awesome. So a band that basically had their royalties stolen from them are going to reunite with the wife that stole them?

Really?

Sorry, nay-sayers, it's 100% true. Courtney approached Pat, Pat talked Krist and Dave into it with some help from me and Bruce. Yes, it is a coup, yes it's happening in Redmond, yes it's happening this Summer. The Whigs will be in the supporting slot and Steven Jesse Bernstein will be headlining the 2nd stage. Be sure not to miss the Dickless and Gits reunion performances.

Yrs,
Jon

Cant you just like, hire the animaniacs to play a tribute or something? That would be way less annoying.
