Pregame for Tuesday’s show with this six-pack:
“Something I Learned Today” (Hüsker Dü, Zen Arcade, 1984) Every Mould mix must begin this way. By law.
“Divide and Conquer” (Hüsker Dü, Flip Your Wig, 1985) Mould has called Wig his first band’s best album, and while we respectfully disagree, this cut’s up there with the best of ’em.
“Compositions for the Young and Old” (Bob Mould, Workbook, 1989) He hasn’t been playing much from his brilliant solo debut lately, but maybe if we all wish really hard …
“Changes” (Sugar, Copper Blue, 1992) Mould’s “poppy” second group still rocked out when it felt like it.
“Sweet Serene” (Bob Mould, The Last Dog and Pony Show, 1998) A personal favorite, from an album touted as Mould’s electric-band swan song. (Fortunately, it wasn’t.)
“The War” (Bob Mould, Beauty & Ruin, 2014) Nostalgia’s cool, but what’s cooler is that the 53-year-old Mould keeps adding quality tunes to his repertoire.
Boub Mould September 30, 8 p.m., $15-$20. Bunkhouse, 702-854-1414.
