7 Sep 2012: Williamsburg Park — New York

Bob Mould’s Copper Blue was written “right over there on Richardson” he told the Williamsburg Park audience on a Friday night during a free performance of the full twenty-year old Sugar album along with many Hüsker Dü songs (with Craig Finn lending his voice to “Something I Learned Today”) and tracks from his latest solo release, Silver Age. The free show begins a short tour to major metropolitan areas in the US as Mould is seeing a resurgence of attention to albums with Sugar as a couple were re-released in deluxe editions in the past month.
