Bob Mould Comes to the Bowery Ballroom

Bob Mould with bassist Jason Narducy (Split Single, Verbow) and drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, The Mountain Goats). They’ll be at the Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, Feb. 26th and Weds., Feb. 27th.

Old-school punk and alternative rock pioneer Bob Mould is celebrating his influential career with his latest album, Silver Age. In a return to what’s been coined “aggressive pop,” the album came together after a series of electric solo dates in 2011 supporting the Foo Fighters. From the hardcore punk sounds of Hüsker Dü (1979-87) that later turned into what helped define the sound of “alt-rock” through the band Sugar (1992-95), to his many successful solo endeavors, it’s hard to ignore Mould as someone who has heavily influenced generations of rock stars.
