Pictures of Nirvana's first show ever, at a house in Raymond, Washington, in March 1987, have emerged online after the daughter of Tony Poukkula, a Seattle Musician, Tweeted them.

Maggie Poukkula posted the images, taken at the venue (the elder Poukkula's house), with apparent nonchalance:

Apparently Tony and Kurt Cobain would jam together occasionally - they went to the same school - and they played with Krist Novoselic at the show rattling off a trio of Led Zeppelin covers. Nirvana reportedly performed early tracks "Downer" and "Hairspray Queen" at the show.

You can hear a (very) raw recording of Nirvana playing "f You Must" at the show below.
