One of the great moments in the history of Nirvana was when the band took the stage at 1992’s Reading Festival for their headlining gig. They hadn’t practiced in months (according to Dave Grohl) and they still managed to play the show of their career.

It’s a testament to the talent that oozed from all three members of the band.

And now we all get to enjoy the moment.

The DVD/CD will be released on Tuesday, and the trailer has finally hit the interwebs. View it after the jump.

We’ve featured Pearl JamĀ a couple times on the Spotlight with songs from Backspacer. They are officially releasing “Just Breathe,” possibly my favorite song from the album, as the second single. Following on the heels of the raucous “The Fixer,” this is a much more toned down Pearl Jam. It is a song that would fit very comfortably on lead singer Eddie Vedder’s solo album, the soundtrack for Into the Wild.

Reaction was mostly positive, but there were some people that didn’t care for it. Karma called in to say, “I’m not usually a Pearl Jam fan, but I liked that one a lot.” Josh also called in and said, “I loved it.” He went on to explain he was heading to St. George to get married and he was going to try to find this song and use it at the wedding. Natalie texted, “meh”. And another person texted, “ive always been nuetral 2 pearl jam. This song hasnt changed that perspective.” And another read, “thought it was country at first. Checked the station. Liked when strings kicked in”.

If you missed today’s Spotlight, you can hear a snippit on the band’s official website. You can also find Pearl Jam on MySpace, Facebook and Twitter.

Regular readers of my blog will be familiar with Them Crooked Vultures, and my complete adoration of the band. Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) are the new power trio that is taking the world by storm. And now we finally have an official release from the band: “New Fang”.

Reaction to this song was not as positive as I had hoped it would be. Jeff called in to say, “That sounds pretty good, I like it.” Justin said, “It sounded like a really bad mashup.” And Janna said, “I thought it was terrible.” Texts weren’t much better. Jason texted “no.” While Mick texted, “Hellz yeah play more that rocked like a cool mashup but way better”. And Heather said, “i didnt hate it. it could grow on me. different- kinda cool.”

If you missed the song, you can hear it on the band’s website. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Vedera hail from Kansas City, Missouri, and have been touring for several years as they work to break through to the main stream. We actually had them here at the End back in May of 2008. They were so amazing that we couldn’t pass up the chance to have them back for a live New Music Spotlight performance.

I’ll get the audio of the interview/performance posted as soon as I can, but in the meantime, head to the band’s MySpace page and give the song “Satisfy” a listen. You can also find Vedera on Facebook, Twitter and their official website.

We featured the Dead Weather on the Spotlight when their first single came out, and now they have a follow up. “I Cut Like A Buffalo” is one of the few instances where you hear Jack White’s voice on the band’s debut album Horehound, and it’s an interesting organ drenched tune.

Reaction to the song was not very positive. Mike called in and said he loved it, but Steven called in to say, “That was a weird and just stupid song.” Russ also called to say, “That song was very good.” Natalie sent a text that read, “YUCK! Sorry but this is crap and I hope the end doesnt put it in rotation!” And Ryan agreed with her saying, “That song sucked.”

If you missed today’s Spotlight, you can watch the video for the song on the band’s website. You can also catch up with them on Facebook.

The Fray, who hail from Denver, are soon to release the third single from their sophomore album, “Syndicate”. This song is not redefining the band, and I imagine fans are perfectly okay with that. As am I.

If you missed today’s Spotlight, you can hear the song on the band’s MySpace page. You can also find the Fray on Facebook, Twitter and their official website.
