Bob Mould

For those of a certain age (old enough to despise Reagan, too young to remember JFK), Bob Mould is an icon. The six-string heart of Hüsker Dü--which raged and thrashed under SST’s punk-rock banner, keeping the alternative flame burning in the '80s--Mould's had a successful, if not always consistent, solo career and fronted Sugar's powerful pop in the early '90s. This is the penultimate show in a six-week tour that began in October, three days after his 50th birthday and a year removed from his ninth solo release, Life and Times. Mould has become a high-profile gay activist since coming out 16 years ago, unleashing a new lyrical perspective that has informed his recent work. With Telekinesis. MICHAEL MAHONEY
