Date Description of changes
20 Mar 2017 Paid a visit to the BMI Repertoire database site for the first time in quite a while and added a bunch of titles found there to the woefully incomplete published songs list, which is intended as an up-to-date reflection of the information listed on the BMI site.
20 Mar 2017 Added "Insects Rule The World" to the song titles list.
17 Mar 2017 Learned that the 23 Jul 1983 show at "The Barn" in Excelsior MN that was advertised in this recently discovered poster never happened. More info can be found in the updated venue description page. Thanks to David Hunter Dyer, who designed the poster and was one of the organizers of the show.
11 Mar 2017 Made yet more revisions to the venue description page for International I and II in Manchester UK, based on info solicited from followers of the Hüsker Dü Database Facebook page. It turns out that International I and International II dates of operation did in fact overlap for some period of time, and it's been established with a fair amount of confidence that both Hüsker dates took place at International I. Thanks to Russ Meehan, Paul Drew, Brendan Bell, Alex Atherton, and Jonathan Hargreaves for helping to clear up some of the confusion.
11 Mar 2017 Put up a setlist page and a performance stills page for last night's Grant Hart solo electric performance at Hook and Ladder in Minneapolis. Thanks to Keith Lee.
10 Mar 2017 Made some updates/corrections to the venue description page for International I and II in Manchester UK. The International I site still stands, and is currently home to the Venus Supermarket. There is considerable confusion about the dates of operation of the two venues. At least one of the Hüsker-related dates was at International I on Anson Road, but there is conflicting information out there. Also put up a venue image page for the ex-International I. Thanks to Chris Brown for opening this can of worms.
10 Mar 2017 Made some updates/corrections to the venue description page for G.S. Vig's in Madison, which was apparently owned not by Butch Vig, but by his brother Chris.
08 Mar 2017 Added a new ticket image to the ticket collage page: 06 Mar 1987, Hüsker Dü, Bogart's, Cincinnati. Thanks to Nick Kremer.
03 Mar 2017 Added an annotated discography entry for the Thai cassette release of the Bob Mould self-titled ("Hubcap") album, put up an artwork page, and updated the summary discography.
03 Mar 2017 Added an annotated discography entry for the Korean cassette release of the Bob Mould self-titled ("Hubcap") album, put up an artwork page, and updated the summary discography.
03 Mar 2017 Put up a venue image page for the former Carpenters Hall in San Diego and made some revisions to the venue description page.

14 Feb 2017 Ascertained that the 23 Jul 1983 Hüsker Dü gig did not in fact take place at The Barn in Riverside CA, a date/location combination that had long been geographically suspect. "The Barn" in question was, according to a newly discovered flyer (no image available as yet), actually located in Excelsior MN. Updated the dates page and put up a low-information venue description page for The (Excelsior) Barn. Thanks to Alex Grosby for the info.

28 Jan 2017 Added a previously unknown cancelled date: 21 Jun 1984, Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, Sudbury MA. Show was scrubbed when the space became unavailable on short notice. As a result, Hüsker Dü was added to the bill of the Articles of Faith show that night at Pulaski Hall in Easthampton, a show that was known to have happened. Thanks to Alex Grosby for mentioning that a ticket existed for the high school gig, and to Brian Michaud and Al Quint for providing the explanation for the apparent conflict.
