Foo Fighters joined by Krist for secret show

From Rolling Stone:

Fans got the next best thing to a Nirvana reunion Tuesday night when the band's three surviving members performed together for the first time since Kurt Cobain passed away. The occasion was the encore for a barely announced, impromptu Foo Fighters concert at Paladinos, a Tarzana, California dive bar better known for "Live Band Karaoke Every Tuesday" than historic rock events.

The only thing more unlikely than seeing the Foo Fighters play outside an arena was the sight of Krist Novoselic joining former Nirvana tour guitarist/current Foo Fighter Pat Smear and head Foo Dave Grohl onstage. The trio played one song "Marigold," the non-album b-side of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box," with Grohl both singing lead and reverting to his Nirvana role behind the drums to an audience which included Amanda Seyfried, Juliette Lewis, Ryan Phillippe and No Doubt's Tony Kanal alongside hardcore fans pulled in from the band's Facebook page.
