Breaking the Mould

So you didn't get tickets to the World Series opener tonight. So you don't want to spend the entire evening in front of the TV. So, go down to First Avenue for an early-evening concert by Bob Mould, the former Hüsker Dü guitarist-singer who helped put the Twin Cities rock scene on the map in the 1980s.

Actually, Mould doesn't live here anymore, and he's playing a solo acoustic set tonight. He's a good songwriter, a good singer and a good guitarist. He has put out two good solo albums, and he can draw upon old Hüsker numbers.

The program begins with a set by Vic Chestnutt at 6:30 p.m. Mould should be on about 8, which should leave enough time to catch the last couple of innings of the game on the tube. Admission is $12. Mould will also be at First Avenue, 701 First Av. N, Minneapolis, Sunday. Call 338-8388.
