- Have you heard that it’s the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” this year? VH1 joins the celebration next Friday, Sept. 23 when it will broadcast “Nirvana: Live at the Paramount,” an hour-long concert movie with footage from the band’s Halloween homecoming show in 1991. A DVD release is scheduled for Sept. 27. Side note: I had a bootleg cassette of this show back in high school and it was my go-to Nirvana tape. Great version of “Endless, Nameless.”

- The Smoking Gun has details of how Interscope Records was used by a narcotics ring to ship cocaine across the country.
