Nirvana reunion: could it happen at Cal Jam 18?
...but, mostly, does it make sense? Anyway, it seems that Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters have something in the can for their Cal Jam Fest 2018, which takes place this weekend in San Bernardino, CA.
Indeed, Foo Fighters have posted some cryptic tweets in reference to Cal Jam. In a tweet announcing a screening of Joan Jett’s new documentary, Foo Fighters responded by tweeting: “CAN’T WAIT!!!! What else could we have up our sleeves???” Stay tuned….”. Then, hours later, Foo Fighters shared footage from Nirvana’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame afterparty, which took place following the band’s induction in 2014. That tweet included the caption, “This is a Jam @caljamfest #CalJam18,” and it was retweeted by Nirvana’s verified Twitter account.
It all smells like Nirvana reunion - obviously without their main man, Kurt Cobain. All three surviving Nirvana members will be at the festival: Grohl and Pat Smear play together in Foo Fighters, while Krist Novoselic will appear with his current band, Giants in the Trees. The Cal Jam lineup also features two of the vocalists from Nirvana’s 2014 reunion show: Joan Jett and John McAuley of Deer Tick. McAuley is also featured in the below video, which shows “Serve the Servants” played backwards.
