A great sounding show from Husker Du's hometown at the First Avenue on August 28, 1985, (exactly 25 years ago today) recorded for the Spin radio show. This concert was recorded at the height of their career (at least in my option), to launch the release of the album, Flip Your Wig and included several songs from their next album, Candy Apple Grey. This show is probably one of the most frequently bootlegged Husker Du recordings and it is available in different versions (including the one pictured on the left), which I own on vinyl, but many of them are incomplete. The version I have posted is the complete show. It also includes some interview segments with Bob and Grant, and the set list is amazing! The songs draw from their best albums, New Day, Flip and Candy Apple and of course, Husker Du was a great live band. Enjoy!
