Well seeing the incredible Bob Mould perform live at Troubadour is certainly reason enough for a new posting. After all, his 80’s band Hüsker Dü performed the Byrds cover inspiring the title of this blog, and is widely considered as a major progenitor of indie rock, influencing the likes of Green Day, Foo Fighters and the Pixies.
His band didn’t play “8 Miles High” but surprisingly performed several old Hüskers favorites including “New Day Rising”, “I Apologize”, “Makes No Sense At All” and of course “Hardly Getting Over It.”
