Nice! There's a new cover band here in Chicago called the Husker Dudes! haha. I sold an amp to their drummer the other day. I guess Greg Norton has been making a lot of comments on their Facebook page.

Good luck at your show!

I love Husker Du. Great band--and Grant Hart is an amazing drummer and vocalist. To say he's a huge influence on Dave Grohl would be an understatement...

That's awesome. Husker Du is one of my favorite all time bands. Bob Mould went to my hometown like 2 weeks after I left for college, i was pissed.

At work...I'm soo fricking tired...

Great show last night, just really long. Late night for a school night. Grant Hart played for 2 hrs straight, 1st half solo, 2nd half with the Venerables...

Really cool experience...Grant and his backing band were really laid back and friendly. He came up to us and introduced himself and hung out and talked between sets.

And since this is an Orange forum I thought I'd share this...no kidding... he came up after the set and complemented and admired my AD30

I got a chance to go and check out Bob Mould years ago. It was a great show of course. Way loud though...

huh?!?, what?.... Oh sorry Grant Hart was pretty damn loud too... Even with just one guitar, the sound guy had him cranked! He had a Fender bluesjunior cranked and the sound guy had it cranked...louder.
