Review + Photos: Bob Mould at the Fillmore

Bob Mould (photo: Patric Carver) Bay Area, what did we ever do to deserve Bob Mould? The seasoned premier foster parent of the Midwest punk scene returned to his current home, San Francisco, to play a jubilant show to adoring fans at the Fillmore. The show was part of Mould’s Sunshine Rock tour, promoting his latest album of the same name. Like the album title suggests, Mould appears to have entered a happier chapter of his life. Although he is originally from New York, Mould has had an unshakable Minnesota stoicism about him for as long as he’s been in [...]

Bob Mould brings ‘Workbook,’ Zach Rogue, and Jon Ginoli to the Great American Music Hall

Excuses, excuses,  I'll spare you most of them.  Let's just say I was really looking forward to hearing Warehouse.  Twenty-five years later, '87's Warehouse (Husker Du's last album) and '89's Workbook (Mould's first solo record) sounded too similar to my frazzled brain to differentiate.  Workbook is where I parted ways with Bob Mould. As a major fan of Husker Du, it seemed Mould was getting in touch with his inner Richard Thompson. They were tough times for music. In 1985, The Minutemen's D. Boon had died and The Replacements fired Bob Stinson (who died 10 years later). The Replacements released their biggest disappointment Don't [...]

His first studio album since 2009's Life and Times and recorded with drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Telekinesis, ex-Verbow), the album promises to be "punishingly loud, melodically sparkling pop/rock [in the] vein of the Sugar catalogue."

Today: MOG Party featuring Bob Mould, The Roots and more!

Tonight: Bob Mould DJs at Distortion+

After moving to SF in 2009, Bob Mould, rock legend/DJ/remixer/author (whose autobiography See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody comes out June 15), reached out to Chris Xefos, producer/engineer/musician/writer, about starting a bimonthly DJ night. That party is Distortion+, which features the duo spinning "the sounds of loud guitars coupled with melodic songs: indie rock/pop, punk, post-punk, psych, shoegaze…all presented in a relaxed atmosphere so folks can get their (music) geek on while hanging out and socializing with friends in a unique setting." If that sounds good to you, the latest Distortion+ party is tonight, March 25th, [...]
