Bob Mould celebrates his silver anniversary at the 9:30 Club

Bobmould3550

Twenty-five years ago, Bob Mould, the lead singer and guitarist of the pioneering alt-rock band Hüsker Dü and also the pioneering power-pop band Sugar released his debut solo album, Workbook. Bob Mould, of course, is now best known in gay circles as one-half of the pioneering gay-bear-dance-party and DJ duo Blowoff. Less than two months after hosting the last Blowoff of an 11-year-run, the 9:30 Club welcomes back Mould as part of a small national tour celebrating his solo career’s silver anniversary. Longtime bassist Jason Narducy joins Mould to perform songs from Mould’s oeuvre, but chiefly Workbook, which has been credited as partly influencing Dave Grohl and Ben Gibbard, among others. Wednesday, March 5. Doors at 7 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $25. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com. Also visit 930.com/friends to sign up for the club’s Friends With Benefits rewards program offering exclusive deals and discounts on tickets, drinks and merchandise.
