If Hüsker Dü or Sugar were before your time, do yourself a favor and dig up their old catalogs. Both venerable bands were fronted by Bob Mould, and an all-star assortment of music luminaries assembled to celebrate the music and legacy of Mould’s vast catalog at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Britt Daniel, Ryan Adams, Dave Grohl, No Age, Grant Lee Phillips, Margaret Cho, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady all paid tribute by running through classic Hüsker Dü and Sugar songs. Mould is touring in support of his book See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody and hinted he may tour next year to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Sugar’s Copper Blue along with recording a new album. Check out the pictures above and a few videos below.
