Movie Crush: 1991 The Year Punk Broke

If you haven’t seen the documentary of one of the most important two week tours in alternative rock history, then you are severely missing out.

1991: The Year Punk Broke is filmmakers David Markey’s two week journey on the Sonic Youth European tour of 1991. This now infamous tour included Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, Babes in Toyland, Gumball, and The Ramones. While it does focus on the show, the connection between the bands is really one of the most amazing aspects of the documentary. Being behind the scenes on a show like this really is one of my dreams in life.
