After a tumultuous year that saw him lose most of his treasured possessions in a house fire (causing local musicians to rally behind him for a benefit concert), Grant Hart is ready to put 2011 behind him the best way he knows how—with a boisterous, old fashioned rock 'n' roll show in the Entry. The former Hüsker Dü drummer is sure to put on a spirited, engaging performance in front of his faithful fans, highlighting his criminally overlooked songwriting talents with tracks both new and old. Hart is a talented artist who always manages to captivate an audience no matter what he is doing, and this intimate performance should prove to be no exception. Opening the evening will be the Rank Strangers' Michael Wisti, who has produced some of Hart's recent material at his Albatross Studio, and he should jump-start the night properly with his own particular style of raucous garage-rock.
