Sasquatch 2014, Day 3: Bob Mould

photos by Sally Gray Mahon

Even though he’s not on a proper tour at the moment, Bob Mould (and his partners in crime drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy) can pump out a set of punk rock seemingly on a moment’s notice. Right as Mould’s set at Sasquatch was starting, black sheets of rain started to drizzle down, but he didn’t seem to mind as he ripped through a set that thoroughly covered his catalog, with a setlist that nearly evenly split between his solo career and his work with Sugar and Husker Du. Although he played a handful of songs from Beauty and Ruin, his forthcoming eleventh studio album, the majority of the set played out like a well-picked sampler of Mould’s catalog, which is ideal for a festival setting. Mould himself was in fine form, still thrashing away onstage with the same thick, melodic guitar style that he’s honed for 30+ years, which served as a link between all of his different projects, and judging by the still-present fury of his live show, he has no signs of slowing down.
