The 9:30 Club did run all-ages shows from time to time, but investigation has failed to turn up any evidence of an early show on this date, so the "late" designation has been removed.)
25 Jun 2021 Put up a setlist for the 25 Apr 1987 Hüsker Dü show at Variety Arts Center in Los Angeles (based on a recording recently archived here). Also corrected the setlist and live video entry in the annotated discography for the 16 Apr 1983 Hüsker Dü gig at the West Side Club in Philadelphia, from which "Bricklayer" had been inadvertently omitted.

That uncertainty remains: the gig may have taken place on 16 Dec, according to the informant. The earlier date was (tentatively) chosen after the date of the Nova Mob Marc Goodier BBC Session previously listed as "late 1992" was established as 12 Dec 1992. Thanks to Stefan Kullik.
