Music Day 1: Grant Hart

Former Hüsker Dü member Grant Hart took the small deck/stage at Creekside Lounge to deliver a short set consisting of just him and an electric guitar. Quite frankly, he didn’t look well, with a bandanna over his head and an ashen complexion. But that’s just idle speculation, and his songs were as strong as they ever were, displaying Hart’s longtime fondness for ‘50s and ‘60s style rock hooks and making you remember what a vital contribution he made to Hüsker Dü’s legacy. The crowd was of a decent size, and devoted, and Hart seemed to recognize the bond between himself and his fans, even taking a couple of requests.
