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).
