We start today with the tragic news of Grant Hart‘s passing from fucking cancer. The Hüsker Dü drummer was 56, and leaves behind a legacy of great songs, strong opinions, many laughs, and tender memories. Twin Cities music beat writer Chris Riemenschneider eulogizes the hometown hero in today’s Star Tribune:
Jawbreaker is doing a signing at Bric a Brac Records tonight. No big deal.
Nine Inch Nails is doing a signing at Reckless Records tonight. No big deal.
The Replacements have released “Bastards of Young” from the new Live at Maxwell’s 1986. Big deal.
We talked to Mayday Parade Alex’s Garcia about their full album show this weekend.
Paramore has been training hard for their Riot Fest set.
