Bob Mould Sunshine Rock Winter 2020 Solo Electric (2/1/20)
A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation, supported by WFUV
Bob Mould, whose face belongs on the Mount Rushmore of alternative music has helped define the sound of guitar rock in the alternative age. He tours in support of his latest album, Sunshine Rock. The theme, the cathartic vocals, and the strings all amount to Mould’s catchiest, grabbiest album since Copper Blue, the acclaimed 1992 debut of his trio Sugar. Sunshine Rock follows the 2016 release of Patch the Sky, which was hailed by Rolling Stone as “conjuring the ecstatic rage of his earlier bands for a grim new era” and as “tight, sharp musings on aging, fizzled relationships and death that are melodic enough to sound like songs of victory” by the New York Times. Patch the Sky completed a trilogy including its 2014 predecessor Beauty & Ruin and 2012’s Silver Age.
