The original Gerde's Folk City at 71 W 4th St, seen here circa 1960.
"Gerde's" is visible on the sign. This is the Folk City location where Dylan
used to play (and was also the site of Cisco Houston's last performance). The
bar was on the right as you walked in the front door; the small stage was on
the left, against the opposite wall.
Hüsker Dü never played this room; Folk City moved to W. 3rd St (leaving the "Gerde's" behind) long before the band was formed. Hüskers played the new Folk City on 27 Apr 1983.
