Bob Mould Concert Review, Austin, TX 4/21/2013

with one comment

For the 5th time in 13 months Bob Mould played Austin last night at the Mohawk.  His setlist has been pretty consistent lately, so no real surprises…and none were needed.  Bob’s live show is energetic and his backup band is as solid as anyone could want.  During a break, Bob introduced the band.  He told the crowd that his drummer loved “rock docs” and asked what he had just bought today.  The drummer piped up and said he had picked up one about Saxon but didn’t know anything about them.  A dude up front said, “Their big one is denim and leather brought us all together.”  Bob smiled and said, “Well, I don’t know if we can follow that one.”  haha

Fun show but only about 2/3 full.

Bob Mould Concert Review, Austin, TX 11/1/2012

Through former bands/bandmates, friends and even MTV, Husker Du/Bob Mould/Sugar have always been in my periphery somewhat.  This week I was offered a pass to see Bob Mould for his Austin City Limits taping.  He’s in town to play at FunFunFunFest.  Of course I wanted to go.  I missed Bob earlier this year at SxSW.

While I’m not familiar with all of his material, I have owned Candy Apple Grey, Workbook, Copper Blue and Beaster since each came out.  Good solid rock.

Tonight’s show was great.  I was given a setlist prior to the show and got a good idea of what to expect.  Lots from Copper Blue which was great.  The whole band was great and the bassist provided great backing vocals.  So glad I went and thankful for the free pass!

Sorry, no pics as cameras were not allowed since this was recorded for a TV broadcast.
