Foo Fighters at The Academy (08-13-1995)


On August 13th, 1995, Foo Fighters played at The Academy in New York City. Although the band currently enjoys worldwide recognition and tremendous success, Foo Fighters originated as Dave Grohl's side project while touring with Nirvana.  In 1994, Grohl recorded 15 songs, 12 of which appear on the band's debut self-title album, which was released in July 1995. Foo Fighters embarked on their first major tour in the spring of 1995, opening for Mike Watt.  At this stop on the tour, the band played tons of classics from their first record, including "I'll Stick Around," "For All The Cows," "This Is A Call," and "Alone + Easy Target."
