In March of 1979, Hüsker Dü played their first public performance at Ron's Randolph Inn. Although there is no longer a 1217 building at this address, the 1219 building contains the one-story brick building that used to be Ron's.

As Bob Mould recalled:
"I am 99% certain it's the one story building next to the salon. 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."
