As part of the Free State Film Festival at the Lawrence Arts Center, the evening revolved around the former Hüsker Dü musician after a screening of Every Everything: The Music, Life, and Times of Grant Hart. Following the film, and a short Q&A session, the artist took the stage to perform a handful of songs before he was joined by some of the most recognizable faces in the scene.
Drummer extraordinaire Kliph Scurlock, Major Games frontman Jeremy Sidener, and man-about-town Cameron Hawk (Dead Girls, Stiff Middle Fingers, Many Moods of Dad, and Lawrence Field Day Fest Founder), all made up this super group.
It was a stunning display of delight, joviality, and good old rock and roll. The performance was laid back and allowed for a more playful demeanor onstage.
Here’s a clip of what it looked like:
