18 Jan 2023 Put up a flyer image 04 Apr 1984 Hüsker Dü show at Mississippi Nights in St Louis that was canceled when Grant reportedly injured himself attempting a Russian Cossack dance. The show, celebrating the fifth anniversary of JET LAG magazine, was rescheduled for 20 Jun 1985. Updated the 1985 poster index page and added the ill-fated gig to the dates page. Thanks to Frank Loose of opening band Get Smart!.
18 Jan 2023 Updated the venue info page for Sweetbay Studios in Tallahassee to correct the opening date of the facility. Thanks to Kenny Lee Norton, who worked there with his brother, the late Burt Norton, owner and manager of Sweetbay.
03 Jan 2023 Added two new Hüsker Dü flyers:
    30 Jun 1982, Ritz, Austin TX
    22 Dec 1982, Off The Wall Hall, Lawrence KS.
The Ritz date was previously undocumented, but the Hüskers played two other gigs there during the same four-day stretch (with different openers), so it's perfectly plausible. The Lawrence date had previously been listed, but flagged as unconfirmed with venue unknown. Off The Wall (sometimes hyphenated, sometimes not) turns out to have been the original name of The Bottleneck, which is still going as of 2023. Made major revisions to both the Off The Wall venue info page and the Bottleneck image info page. Updated the 1982 poster index page. Thanks respectively to Mike Soden (Off The Wall pointer) and Lasse Wist (Ritz pointer).
