Two Nirvana alums met up this past weekend in -- where else? -- Washington.

Bassist Krist Novoselic and early Nirvana drummer Aaron Burckhard came together in Aberdeen -- Kurt Cobain's hometown -- for the unveiling of a mural honoring the Seattle music scene. 

The painting prominently features Nirvana and also tips its hat to Soundgarden, L7, Bikini Kill, Sonic Youth, Meat Puppets, Mudhoney and others.  It's painted on the side of a flooring company building, and that explains why Novoselic tweeted a photo of himself and Burckhard in what looks to be a carpet store.

Burckhard came midway through Nirvana's line of drummers; he played the band's first three live shows before being fired by Cobain for having a poor work ethic.
