Thanks to James Lindbloom.
16 May 2018 Added dates for two upcoming Greg Norton gigs, back-to-back sets with Gang Font and Porcupine at Indeed Brewery in Minneapolis, 20 May 2018 (Whirlygig 2018). More info here. Thanks to James Lindbloom for the pointer.
16 May 2018 Changed the release date of New Day Rising to 14 Jan 1985, based on this SST press release issued the following March, by which time — two months after the fact — SST would presumably have had it figured out (a December 1984 press release listed 21 Jan as the projected street date). Also fixed the summary discography.
12 May 2018 Determined that the previously unidentified opening song of Grant Hart's 22 Nov 2013 show at the Cake Shop in NYC was "Cruelty," and updated the setlist page accordingly. Thanks to James Lindbloom and Malcolm Tent.
09 May 2018 Added another photo to the performance stills page for the 10 May 2016 Bob Mould Band show at Showbox, Seattle. Thanks to Andy Nystrom.
09 May 2018 Added a just-announced Porcupine date: 18 May 2018, 1st Ave, Minneapolis, Milwaukee WI (opening for The Suburbs). More info here. Also put up a flyer image and updated the 2018 poster index page. Thanks to Casey Virock.

09 May 2018 Added the photos from the Cretin Bull magazine article to the performance stills page for the 19 Jan 1983 Hüsker Dü show at Studio 29 in Austin.
08 May 2018 Updated the 1983 Cretin Bull article/interview with a screencap of the first page. Also corrected some of the descriptive info and transcribed text. Thanks to Lasse Wist for the pointer.
05 May 2018 Put up a performance stills page for the 10 May 2016 Bob Mould Band show at Showbox, Seattle. Thanks to Andy Reilly and Karl Reinsch.http://www.extremenoise.com/
05 May 2018 Put up a flyer image for the 14 Oct 1983 Hüsker Dü show at Arcata Vets Hall, Arcata CA, and updated the 1983 poster index page. Thanks to Lasse Wist for the pointer.
30 Apr 2018 F Put up a performance stills page for the 28 Apr 1983 Hüsker Dü show at Electric Banana in Pittsburgh. Thanks to Mike LaVella.
29 Apr 2018 Pinned down the unknown 1983 Hüsker Dü Pop Shop (Cleveland) date to 29 Apr 1983. Newly discovered info that Hüskers and D.R.I. opened for The Fall on that date proved to be the determining factor. Thanks to Jeff Curtis (who attended the gig), Fall historian Stefan Cooke, and and Greg Norton. Also repaired and expanded the Pop Shop venue info page (the old page was riddled with dead links) and added a venue image page.
17 Apr 2018 Added a print ad image listing a Hüsker Dü show at Zoogie's on 01 Oct 1980 and added the gig to the dates page. Thanks to Jason Johnson.
Note: The ad appeared in the 24 Sep 1980 issue of the Twin Cities Reader. It should be pointed out that the ad does not list Hüsker Dü on the bill for Friday, 25 Sep, instead showing Shock Treatment paired with The Fridleys. There is, however, fairly strong evidence that the Hüskers did in fact play on the 25th, as supported by this flyer and the existence of a Terry Katzman recording that is labeled with the 25 Sep 1980 date. A case could be made that since the ad is newer than the flyer (the latter refers to the club by its old name, the Longhorn), the Hüskers might have been bumped, but the Katzman documentation is sufficient to confirm the date.
14 Apr 2018 Venue for tonight's Mid West Music Fest gig in La Crosse WI has been identified as the Cavalier Theater. Added the venue link to the dates page and put up a venue image page. Thanks to Casey Virock.
07 Apr 2018 Put up a couple of early Hüsker Dü setlists:
    13 Jul 1979, Longhorn, Minneapolis
    04 Sep 1980, 7th Street Entry, Minneapolis
Thanks to James Lindbloom and Terry Katzman.
04 Apr 2018 Corrected the date of Grant Hart's 03 Apr 2011 show at Café de la Danse in Paris (had been listed as the 4th) and added a flyer image.
04 Apr 2018 Added a recently announced Porcupine date: 20 Apr 2018, The Sett, University of Wisconsin Union, Madison. More info here.
04 Apr 2018 Added previously unlisted Grant Hart date: 13 Mar 2004, Speedboat Gallery, St Paul. Also put up a venue description page and a venue image page for the Speedboat. (N.b.: Grant did not play the original Speedboat, but a later revival in a new location.) Thanks to James Lindbloom.
04 Apr 2018 Added a couple of new flyers, both for Grant Hart at the Turf Club in St Paul MN:
    25 Oct 2002
    03 Feb 2005 (previously unlisted date)
Thanks to Darren Terebenet and James Lindbloom.
25 Mar 2018 Put up a venue description page and a venue image page for Bierkeller in Bristol UK, which closed for good in February after more than 30 years of operation.
23 Mar 2018 Put up a performance stills page for the 20 Jun 1985 Hüsker Dü show at Mississippi Nights in St Louis. Thanks to Rick Buenaventura.
21 Mar 2018 Put up a setlist page for the 07 Apr 2002 Bob Mould show at PromoWest Pavilion in Columbus OH. Thanks to Martin van Rappard and whomever uploaded the recording to some torrent site (Dime?).
20 Mar 2018 Put up a setlist page for what is most likely the 22 Jan 1996 Grant Hart show at 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis, based on fairly sound—but admittedly circumstantial—evidence, as described on the page. Thanks to Jonathan Haynes.
16 Mar 2018 Put up a venue info page and a venue image page for the Royal Albert Arms Hotel in Winnipeg. (The venue's old website appears to be defunct, as it had not been used as a music venue since the 00s. The building itself was closed for some time and was sold at auction in 2017, but is expected to reopen shortly.) Thanks to Geoff Miki.
15 Mar 2018 Put up a setlist page for the 20 Jul 2017 Grant Hart show at 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis (Grant's last performance). Thanks to John Mulhouse and Terry Katzman.
15 Mar 2018 Added a ticket image for the 17 May 2005 Grant Hart show at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg to the ticket collage page. Thanks to Geoff Miki.
14 Mar 2018 Put up a performance stills page for the 10 May 2017 Grant Hart show at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn NY. Thanks to Mitchell Wu.
12 Mar 2018 Upgraded the flyer image for the 16 Jun 1983 Hüsker Dü show at Coffman Union, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Thanks to Moritz Bensieck.
10 Mar 2018 Added three new Hüsker Dü ads/flyers:
    02*, 03*, 21, 22 Jul 1980, 7th Street Entry, Minneapolis (print ad)
    25 Sep 1980, Zoogies, Minneapolis (flyer says Longhorn; club renamed prior to show)
    14 May 1982, 7th Street Entry, Minneapolis (flyer)
Updated the 1980 and 1982 poster index pages.

* These two Entry dates were previously unlisted. There was already a Hüsker date listed for 02 Jul 1980 at the Longhorn, based on this print ad. Greg Norton was kind enough to resolve the apparent conflict: "We played both clubs on the 2nd. [Steve] McClellan was not real happy with us as we were loading in at 10:30, but he was alright with everything by the end of the night."
07 Mar 2018 Put up a performance stills page for the 22 Jan 1983 Hüsker Dü show at North Base National Guard Armory in Norman OK. Also put up a venue description page for the Armory, and fixed the notation on the dates page that erroneously identified the venue as the ROTC Armory on the University of Oklahoma campus. Thanks to Mark Rubin and David Fallis.
07 Mar 2018 Added an annotated discography entry for the Bob Mould/Sugar Europe-only digital compilation If I Can't Change Your Mind (The Collection) and updated the summary discography.

07 Mar 2018 Put up a setlist page for the 14 Feb 1992 Nova Mob show at 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis. Thanks to James Lindbloom and Mark Minckler.
07 Mar 2018 Added three new flyers:
    06 Mar 1988, Grant Hart, Uptown Bar, Minneapolis
    13 May 1989, Nova Mob, 1st Ave, Minneapolis
    01 May 1990, Nova Mob, 1st Ave, Minneapolis
Updated the associated poster index pages. There is some uncertainty about which room was the venue for the last two; could have been the Entry (conflicting info). Thanks to Mark Minckler.
06 Mar 2018 Added annotated discography entries for the Hüsker Dü Sorry Somehow UK 7" (the one-record version, as opposed to the previously documented 2x7") and the Brazilian Warehouse release, and updated the summary discography.
05 Mar 2018 Put up a setlist page and a flyer image page for the 02 Oct 1994 Nova Mob show at the Electric Lounge in Austin, and updated the 1994 poster index page. Thanks to Jim Fagan.
05 Mar 2018 Added a ticket image for the 30 Aug 2013 Grant Hart & the Burn/Burning show at Fibbers, York UK (postponed to 27 Oct 2013) to the ticket collage page. Thanks to John Wood.

18 Feb 2018 Added GRANT'S CATS: The Bozo & Sno-Ball Letters to the Ephemera page. (Just check the link for more info about this remarkable document.) Thanks to James Lindbloom and Emily Kaplan.
18 Feb 2018 Added a high-resolution scan of the 15 Sep 1984 NME article on Hüsker Dü to the article's page, which originally had only a text transcription. Thanks to Kevin Whitehead.
15 Feb 2018 Added a ticket image for the 04 Dec 1992 Sugar show at Salle Omnisport in Rennes, France (Les Transmusicales). Thanks to Martin van Rappard for the pointer to the Sonic Youth page that featured this image.
14 Feb 2018 Put up venue image page for the site of the former 688 Club in Atlanta.
11 Feb 2018 Put up a poster image for the 11 Jun 1983 Hüsker Dü show at Niko's in Milwaukee and updated the 1983 poster index page. Thanks to Lasse W. for the pointer to the image posted to Facebook by Mark E. Melchior.
10 Feb 2018 Put up a poster image for the 03 Jun 2014 Bob Mould Band instore performance at Amoeba Records in Hollywood and updated the 2014 poster index page. Image screengrabbed from this video, uploaded to YouTube by Amoeba.

09 Feb 2018 Put up an updated setlist page for the 12 Oct 1984 Hüsker Dü show at The Jockey Club in Newport KY, after discovering two additional songs in the set. Turns out that the encores were missing from the decades-old cassette recording on which the old setlist was based. Digitized recordings of the show that have been circulated include the complete performance.
04 Feb 2018 Put up a performance stills page and a setlist page for the 03 Feb 2018 Bob Mould Band show at Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis. Thanks to Jason Narducy.
02 Feb 2018 Added a couple of new images to the performance stills page for the 16 Jun 1982 Hüsker Dü show at On Broadway Theatre in San Francisco (scanned from the article in MRR #2).
01 Feb 2018 Upgraded the scanned image of the Hüsker Dü interview & photo that appeared in MRR #2.
26 Jan 2018 Added two new Porcupine dates and associated flyers:
    02 Feb 2018, 7th St Entry, Minneapolis (flyer)
    14 Apr 2018, Mid West Music Fest, La Crosse WI (flyer)
Also created a 2018 poster index page. Thanks to Greg Norton.
25 Jan 2018 Made some tracklist corrections to the Besides 2x12" entry (2013 Edsel/Demon reissue) in the annotated discography. It had been erroneously reported that the second 12" was the same as the live bonus CD that was packaged with some copies of the original release. Thanks to Eric Longtin for pointing out the error.
24 Jan 2018 Put up a setlist page for the 31 Mar 2012 Grant Hart (with band) show at Black Lodge, Winston-Salem NC. Thanks to Phil Venable.
24 Jan 2018 Upgraded the performance stills page for the 20 Jan 1984 Hüsker Dü show at Royal Albert Arms in Winnipeg using original photos contributed by the photographer, Doug Humiski. (The old page used some of the same images, but from a poorly photocopied fanzine.) Hüskers played two consecutive nights at this venue, and it it had not previously been certain on which night the photos were taken. Doug Humiski cleared up that confusion, and also corrected the misconception that there had been two shows on each date. Fixed the dates page and the 20 Jan 1984 entry on the live recordings page.
23 Jan 2018 Upgraded the Statues/Amusement artwork page by replacing the old images with larger ones. Apologies to anyone still using dialup technology for internet access.

02 Jan 2018 Put up a "setlist" page for the 19 Feb 2016 Grant Hart Conspiracy show at Kings Arms, Auckland NZ. It's really just a printed list of songs that Grant had rehearsed with the band. The actual set consisted of songs selected from the list in unknown order. Thanks to Christophe Demunter.
