PRO #1

Beaulieu Boom Microphone > Beaulieu 7008 PRO (Super 8). Shot by Dave Markey from the back balcony. Clips appear on the official video release 1991: The Year Punk Broke. Clips appear on a rough edit of the official video release 1991: The Year Punk Broke that Dave Markey posted on YouTube.

  • Most of the set above comes from the band's handwritten setlist.
  • The setlist was shared with a flyer of 08/20/91 but it does not match with the recording we have. In the 08/20/91 you can see a different partial setlist near Kurt's foot. It's possible the person also attended the 08/21/91, so we are assuming the setlist belongs to 08/21/91.
  • "Smells Like Teen Spirit,""Floyd The Barber," and "Drain You," were the first three songs the band played of a 40-minute set, according to an attendee.
  • Kurt screamed his way through "Sliver," according to an attendee.
  • At some point, most probably during the soundcheck, Kurt played drums.
