It looks like Nirvana weren’t finished after their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame performance in Brooklyn. After leaving their initial Barclays center performance, the band apparently played a secret show at Saint Vitus, a smaller (350-capacity) metal club in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.

The band were joined by Rock Hall performers Joan Jett, St. Vincent and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), though Lorde was apparently not present for the show (bed time?). They were also joined onstage by J. Mascis and John McCauley of Deer Tick (who play as a Nirvana tribute band on the side.)
