I am posting all the crap I have about the FSU Garage / FUK House. I tried to start a Wikipedia article about it, then everyone else can add whatever crap they have about it. So, until that gets approved, and people can add at their own free will you can email me anything I dont have photos/flyers/videos/error corrections/parental or city disgust at diediediemydarling at hotmail dot com.


The FSU (F@ck Sh*t Up) Garage was a small garage next to a house at 109 N. Ellen St (off of 1st Street) in Cedar Falls, IA which hosted punk, hardcore, and indie rock shows from 2002-2006. The house itself was known as the FUK House (For Us Kids) and also hosted a show in the basement. It was founded in 2001 by Josh Otten and Jeff Eaton, who had both come to Cedar Falls from Marshalltown to attend UNI and wanted to host DIY punk/hardcore shows in a non-commercial venue. They did not set out to make money on the venue, but instead, just wanted a place of their own to hang out, have fun, and listen to great music. After initially renting the house with a few other musicians and music fans, they set to work on soundproofing the walls of the garage. In dumpsters at UNI and the mattress factory they found enough mattresses, cushions, pads, and pillows to line the walls of the garage in a thick layer of padding. This also served as padding during concerts, when crowds inside the garage would dance, bouncing off the walls and one another. The landlord, local police, and neighbors did not seem to mind the venue during the first few years of operation, but slowly baseless rumors began to circulate in the community that the house was associated with Satanism and underage drinking. Eventually, these concerns, and the response to them by local authorities, caused the venue to close down. The mattresses were removed from the garage and it was torn down in 2006.  (written by Matthew Wilson, the secret history of the cedar valley dude.)
