A 19-year-old from Seattle has unknowingly tweeted out previously unseen photos of Nirvana's first ever gig.
She found the photos hidden in a copy of Kurt Cobain's biography, but didn't realise the historic significance of them until she posted them on Twitter.

Poukkula received messages of astonishment from all over the world, and cashed in on her 15 minutes of fame when she was approached by Rolling Stone to talk about the photos.
That bad ass moment when Rolling Stone Magazine wants to interview you...😳— Maggs❂ (@mjpoukkula) July 21, 2015
"I had no idea that those were during Nirvana’s first concert. My dad showed me them a while back, but he never mentioned that’s what was going on in the photos. I found out because of all the articles," she told Rolling Stone.
"I didn’t realise it was such a historical thing. I thought they were just cool pictures of my dad and Kurt jamming together."
She also revealed that her father had attended high school with Cobain, and used to have jamming sessions with Nirvana. Her dad’s name is mentioned in the band’s biography.Suggest a correction
