To chronicle his first tour with an electric band in seven years, Bob Mould will film a tomorrow’s (Oct. 7) show at the 9:30 Club in his Washington, D.C., home for a live DVD. “It will be a seven-camera shoot with the same crew that [drummer] Brendan [Canty] uses for [the live DVD series] ‘Burn To Shine,'” Mould told Billboard.com last night (Oct. 5) after his show at New York’s Irving Plaza.
The trek, which winds down Oct. 15 in Los Angeles, has found Mould performing everything from Husker Du classics (“Makes No Sense At All,” “Celebrated Summer,” “Chartered Trips,” “I Apologize”) to solo cuts (“Egoverride,” “See a Little Light”) and songs from his sting fronting rock trio Sugar (“A Good Idea,” “Changes,” “If I Can’t Change Your Mind,” “The Act We Act”).
Mould is also playing a healthy dose of his new album, “Body of Song,” released in late July via Yep Roc. The set, which features Fugazi drummer Canty on drums, debuted at No. 22 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.
Having rocked out for the past month, Mould will take some time off before returning the road for an 11-date acoustic tour that gets underway Nov. 11 in Cleveland.
