Never before seen photographs of Nirvana taken during their very first concert-which was held in a basement in 1987-have been posted on twitter by a teenager who was unaware of their historical signifigance.  

19 year old Maggie Poukkula casually tweeted the photographs of her father Tony Poukkula playing alongside Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and original drummer Aaron Bruckhard with the message 'pictures of my dad and Kurt Cobain playing together back in the day.'

Unbeknownst to Maggie, the images were of the very first Nirvana gig which was held at her father's house in 1987 and saw the now legendary band play Nirvana originals including 'Hairspray Queen' and 'Downer'.

The tweet, and images, quickly went viral-much to the suprise of Maggie who has said "I had no idea that those were during Nirvana's first concert-I just thought they were just cool pictures of my dad and Kurt jamming together."
