Hüsker Dü went on to influence pretty much every band that came after them, including most bands you like.
Hüsker Dü broke up and Bob Mould, the frontman, went on to form another group called Sugar that I also fell in love with, predictably enough. And he also put out a bunch of solo stuff. Then he started doing some electronica stuff that I never paid attention to.
Fast forward to now. Bob Mould has put out a new album which is great and sounds just like classic Bob Mould stuff. (Well, it sounds like Sugar more than Hüsker, but that's fine with me.)
Bob looks like a comp lit professor in this video. We've all gotten old!
So Bob's playing tonight at the Fillmore. I'll be there. This'll be fun because I'm usually in the 95% percentile of oldest people at shows but I'll be in the bottom 20% at this one. Also,
If you're thinking about going and you're on the fence, let me just tell you that a couple of years ago I saw Bob solo at a Noise Pop show and even though it was just him and an electric guitar, no backing band or anything, I think it was one of the best shows I've ever seen.
