In 1991, the band Sonic Youth asked filmmaker Dave Markey to come along on their European festival tour that included several other bands, and document the goings-on. Having Markey film the tour was a very prescient decision, since one of the bands, Nirvana, had just shot the video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and was about to release Nevermind… And then punk broke.
