Blowoff (Bob Mould’s electronic project) are coming to Metro
Bob Mould reading from his book in Austin, TX in September (more by Tim Griffin)
Bob Mould wears many hats. The Husker Du & Sugar frontman/author/solo artist will bring his DJ project Blowoff with Richard Morel to Chicago's Metro on May 26. Advance tickets are on sale. I can't believe we're saying this but take a listen to some tracks via their Myspace.
Earlier this year, Mould also inked a solo deal with Merge, who are gearing up to release his new record this coming fall. He has a bunch of summer tour dates lined up with his band (Mountain Goats/Superchunk's Jon Wurster and Telekinesis/Robert Pollard Band's Jason Narducy), at which they'll be performing Sugar's 1992 debut LP Copper Blue in its entirety. They closest they'll get to Chicago is Milwaukee Summerfest in July.
