Off out this evening to see Bob Mould and his band. It'll be good fun, I have no doubt, and I am quietly excited.
This is, I think, my first gig of 2008, which is rather a poor show on my part.
It be top. I had a super time. Set list, as ever, ranged from his early solo work, through Sugar, to his most recent album, then back to Husker Du. Surprise tonight was a very slow, very heavy version of Hanging Tree. Some of the tracks, more than I remember, had different arrangements, and he and bassist Jason Narducy even engaged in a few vocal harmonies.
Bob, although no longer the angry man was, plays with intensity and power and emotion, barely pausing between tracks. I love seeing him play live.
