This is a past event.

Bob Mould Band/Little Bighorn 

When: Thu., Aug. 1, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $20
These days, Bob Mould, the former frontman in noisemaking oufits Husker Du and Sugar, throws down rock ‘n’ roll with his own band. Since 1996 (and prior, really), he’s cultivated a sound that builds off his major alternative acts from the past. Take Live at ATP for a nighttime drive, and you’ll pick up on Mould’s punk origins real quick. Songs like “A Good Idea” translate well to the stage, promising good omens for tonight’s show. For a better sense of where Mould is playing now, last year’s Silver Age offers a stripped-down collection of melodies and nostalgic nods to rock glories of yesteryear. The album’s title track is a tinged nicely with Mould’s characteristic drone and his band’s relentlessly giddy uptempo rock. New material like that will be a welcome treat during his rare appearance in Cleveland, but keep an open ear tonight for Hüsker Dü and Sugar tunes, too. Little Bighorn opens the evening’s gig.
