2010: Fuzz Buzz Kill Summit – A Buzz Box Demonstration, Grumpy’s Bar & Grill, Minneapolis, MN, US – CANCELLED

“An event that didn’t take place was the Fuzz Buzz Kill—a demonstration of Barry Henssler’s (Necros/Big Chief) effects pedal. Henssler was a no show but a frail looking Grant Hart was ready to go. Too bad, it would have been something to see Haze, Buzz Osbourne, Jon Spencer, Hart and Henssler make a lot of noise.” –
