Behind the kit for almost a decade as part of the highly influential Hüsker Dü, Grant Hart (playing tonight at the Larimer Lounge with Bass Drum of Death and Amazing Twin), was also a principle songwriter for the midwest group. But the drummer stepped into the role of lead singer-songwriter not long after the band had broken up, and has continued to make music with mostly just his sinewy voice and a guitar.
Hart has suffered some personal and tour-related hardships as of late (which we spoke with him at length about in a full interview,) but it hasn't stopped him from hitting the road and connecting with fans at his intimate performances. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $12-15. Doors open at 7 p.m., and bands start at 8:30 p.m.
