Bob Mould Tribute

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.

Ryan Adams – “Heartbreak A Stranger

Britt Daniel – “The Act We Act” (Sugar Cover)

Bob Mould – “New Day Rising” (Feat. Dave Grohl on drums)

Bob Mould – “Celebrated Summer”

We’ll add more videos as they pop up.

  1. If you live in LA and you didn’t go to this, you’re a jerk.

    Sincerely,
    A bitter east coaster

    • I went to this, but I’m still kind of a jerk

      This show was fantastic. Ryan also played “Black Sheets of Rain,” which was great. And Jon Wurster absolutely killed on drums on every other song. Plus, Bob did more than hint at touring – he said they would be playing a very small number of shows in which they’d play Copper Blue (they being Wurster and Jason from Telekinesis). Don’t miss that show, bitter east coasters.

  2. Amazing show. Truly.

    Ryan Adams “black sheets” was stunning.

  3. Check out this interview I did with Jon Wurster, towards the end he discusses Bob Mould and how he got the gig playing with him. http://sockmonkeysound.com/podcasts/jon-wurster/

  4. This is huge, what a dream.
