Grant Hart (ex-Hüsker Dü) Suffers House Fire

Former Hüsker Dü and Nova Mob member Grant Hart was the recent victim of a house fire. Two rooms in his home burned, and Hart was sent to the hospital. He is fine now, according to friend. His two cats survived, which he is very happy about, but he did lose his favorite guitar and some other equipment. According to the Star Tribune, "Reps from First Avenue and the Turf Club said they were interested in holding benefits for Hart if needed."

(from thedarkstuff.com) Folks in Omaha rarely get to see anything that the rest of the country does not. At least from a music or entertainment perspective. But tonight, a few hundred people in Omaha will get to see Cursive perform its seminal album, Domestica, in its entirety. This is only the second time the band has done this, and supposedly the last.
It's a little bit past the ten year mark since its release, and Domestica holds up very well. The concept album detailing the demise of a relationship served as Cursive's comeback after a brief time broken up. It is also the first full album to feature Ted Stevens on lead guitar (a position he still holds today). Domestica was the album that truly put Cursive on the national stage.
