Big Star’s influence is so understated, yet seemingly everywhere.

This day in Hüsker Dü history 30 Mar 1979: Husker Du @ Ron’s Randolph Inn, St Paul, their first-ever show. Happy 35th anniversary!
The building was still standing when the photo was shot in 2011, at which time the site was home to a hair salon. According to Bob Mould, Ron’s only occupied the single-story segment on the right, He recalls:
"The front windows you see were ‘the back of the stage.’ When one entered the front door, they were essentially to my immediate left (stage left). The stage was maybe 12 inches high, with a small wrought iron rail — think handrail for a stairway entrance to a suburban house — on stage left. Don’t ask me how I remember all of this."
Greg Norton posted the following recollections here last year:
"3 sets each night (3/30, 3/31) all covers and we were a four piece for our first three gigs. We wrote our first tunes shortly after this and performed them at the Mac springfest gig a few weeks later. Charlie Pines last gig with us at keyboards. He did not play for the encore because we never told him we were writing our own tunes."
