It’s been 35 years since Hüsker Dü released their debut record Land Speed Record. To celebrate, one of Hüsker Dü’s original founding member Grant Hart (joined by The Glandolinian Army, featuring Hart, Dylan Richie, and Timonthy Alleick) will likely perform the record live next Monday at the 7th Street Entry.
Fun Fact #1: Land Speed Record was recorded live at the 7th Street Entry on August 15, 1981.
Fun Fact #2: “Landspeed Records” is the online name of Minneapolis’ Roadrunner Records.
There isn’t a lot of details online, but fans can likely expect to hear about 17 songs crammed into a 27-min set.
Also, there will be a panel discussion of the importance of the record by Steve McClellan, Grant Hart, Greg Norton, Terry Katzman, Lori Barbero, and more.
Also, there will be a special Chris Larson: Land Speed Record art/film installation at the Walker from June 9, 2016 through January 8, 2017. Additional details below:

Los Angeles based thrashers Zig Zags will be headlining the 7th Street Entry next Tuesday, touring in support of Running Out of Red (Castleface Records).
The band has previously been linked to Ty Segall so expect that sort of carefree “California” Burger Records style of music.
This is a true story, but the first time I heard the term ‘zig zag’: I was walking to my apartment in 1997 and some dude on the street asked me, “Hey man, you got any zigzags?” My default answer was “No.” then followed by “I don’t know what that is.” He said he needed it to roll weed. In case you missed it, Zig-Zag is a rolling paper used for tobacco (or whatever you want to smoke).
