Original Hüsker Dü setlist, handwritten by Bob Mould, from the June 16, 1982 concert at the On Broadway Theatre in San Francisco
N.p. N.p., 1983. Vintage Hüsker Dü setlist, executed in holograph ink by guitarist Bob Mould, from the June 16, 1982 show at San Francisco's On Broadway Theatre, with a corresponding holograph ink annotation of "OB 6-16-82" on the lower right corner of the verso. Full provenance available.
The setlist features 20 songs from "Land Speed Record" (1982), "In a Free Land" EP (1982), and their forthcoming LP "Everything Falls Apart" (1983), the only exception being "Drug Party," which was recorded live in the early 1980s but not officially released until the 2017 rarity box set "Savage Young Du."
The seminal punk/rock band Hüsker Dü formed in Saint Paul, Minnesota, in 1979, with members Bob Mould, Greg Norton, and Grant Hart defining the hardcore scene in the early 1980s with constant touring, breakneck sets, and critical acclaim, quickly garnering a nationwide audience.
Like many more ambitious punk banks, Hüsker Dü quickly expanded their sound and in 1985 released the groundbreaking "Zen Arcade," a landmark record that incorporated elements of folk, psychedelia, and rock and roll, proving to be a lasting influence to the alternative music scene for decades to come. Husker Du officially disbanded in 1988, and Mould and Hart continued on to prolific solo careers, as well as forming the bands Sugar and Nova Mob, respectively.
