Jon sent in some interesting news: "There is a screening of 1991 - The Year Punk Broke with Sonic Youth and Nirvana. It is showing this weekend, Saturday May 7 2005 at 7:00 p.m. in St. Louis, MO. at the Webster University Film Series. What is extra special about the screening is it is being shown with director Dave Markey's 2005 companion piece (This is Known As) The Blues Scale which equates to about forty extra minutes of footage of the original film. Nirvana performs In Bloom though the audio is a little rough. I have to tell you though, Kurt's solo is blistering in this version of the song. Sonic Youth also performs 4 more songs and there are plenty more backstage antics, especially with Sonic's Thurston Moore. The whole series includes The Decline of Western Civilization, The Year Punk Broke with Blues Scale as the centerpiece, and Instrument. The series concludes the next weekend with the premiere of the new Flaming Lips documentary The Fearless Freaks. This is a one night only screening to see Kurt, Krist, and Dave on the big screen." For Film Series calendar, directions, prices, and times go here. Also check out Dave Markey's own website here.
