From We Got Power Films:

Take a trip with Sonic Youth and Nirvana as they stumble thought their 1991 European club & festival tour! Let filmmaker Dave Markey put you on stage, off stage and backstage! Witness the boredom!

"1991 is a celebration. Its joiie de vivre is infectious. Even the hints of tragedy- a glipse of the late roadie Joe Cole, a too-high Cobain- merely make the claim in the film's title more crucial."
- Village Voice

"Director Dave Markey strives for a kind of cinema verite-meets-homemade-fanzine appeal and succeeds almost too well." - Entertainment Weekly
