On this day…

On this day in 1983 Husker Du performed at Goofy’s Upper Deck in downtown Minneapolis. The venue booked hardcore punk shows on the second floor and ran a strip club downstairs – it only lasted for 2 years and was shut down in October 1983. The six-inch stage at Goofy’s hosted many touring bands such as Black Flag, The Minutemen, Discharge, Social Distortion, and DOA. This Husker Du performance included a number of songs that would appear on the band’s ambitious full-length double album Zen Arcade – which was released on SST in 1984.
