Watch Bob Mould On Conan

Last month, we saw former Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman and general all-around indie-punk deity Bob Mould utterly wrecking shit on Letterman. Last night, we got an encore of sorts, and Mould once again laid waste to a late-night TV stage. This time, he was on Conan, just blazing his way through “Keep Believing,” a song from… More »

Watch Bob Mould Kick Ass On Letterman

Rose directs; watch it below. More »

Bob Mould, Henry Rollins, Dave Grohl Celebrate 9:30 Club’s 30th

On Monday/Memorial Day the 9:30 Club celebrated its 30th Anniversary. For kids who grew up listening to and mythologizing D.C. hardcore, punk, and the like, the place needs no introduction. In case it does, host Henry Rollins did a good job offering background and various old-time Black Flag-related anecdotes. (Of course, old pal/pet store coworker… More »

The weather’s getting hotter by the day, but we refuse to cave: We arrived at the grounds when the sun was at its peak. Amrit’s given to wearing shorts at this point, but Brandon sticks by his Levi’s because pale white legs are no good in the Southern California… More »

New Bob Mould – “City Lights (Days Go By)”

When Bob Mould joined No Age onstage, he reached back into Hüsker Dü’s catalog and performed the classic “New Day Rising.” While at SXSW, I was talking with a friend about how much I love Mould’s voice, that there’s such a nostalgic resonance to it that even if the song he’s singing isn’t the best… More »

Happy New Year, y’all! Glad to see you guys made it into 2007, like us, at our computers and in need of war-story swapping and diversion from post-holiday pain.
