artist: HÜSKER DÜ (Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, USA)
venue: 1st Avenue
location: Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
date: ?? 1985
length: 64 minutes

A pre-Candy Apple Grey recording featuring a healthy selection of tracks from Flip Your Wig and New Day Rising, this is probably from 30 January 1985 though the set list differs slightly form listings online and a few scattered videos. Not an impossible to find artifact, and well past their well documented hardcore fury, but this recording is still shit hot fire....and dropping a four plus minute version of the Elvis standard "(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care)" near the end of the set when you know the punks wanted something to slam dance to is a straight baller move.
