Welcome to the Lancaster Fairfield County Chamber!
Stuart's Opera House, Bob Mould Solo Electric: Distortion and Blue Hearts
Stuart's Opera House and Ohio University Performing Arts and Concert Series are excited to welcome Bob Mould to Stuart’s Opera House on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 8:00pm! Jason Narducy will open the show. Ever-evolving artist Bob Mould—whose face belongs on the Mount Rushmore of alternative music—decided to “write to the sunshine,” as he describes it, not because he likes the current administration. It comes from a more personal place—a place found in Berlin, Germany, where he’s spent the majority of the last three years. Here Mould would draw inspiration from the new environments. Get tickets and information at stuartsoperahouse.org.
The theme, the cathartic vocals, and the strings all amount to Mould’s catchiest, grabbiest album since Copper Blue, the acclaimed 1992 debut of his trio Sugar. Back then, Mould’s work in Hüsker Dü, as a solo artist, and in Sugar helped define the sound of guitar rock in the alternative age. Sunshine Rock finds him doing it again for an era that has ostensibly eschewed rock.
Sunshine Rock follows the 2016 release of Patch the Sky, which was hailed by Rolling Stone as “conjuring the ecstatic rage of his earlier bands for a grim new era” and as “tight, sharp musings on aging, fizzled relationships and death that are melodic enough to sound like songs of victory” by the New York Times. Patch the Sky completed a trilogy including its 2014 predecessor Beauty & Ruin and 2012’s Silver Age.
Bob Mould Solo Electric will perform during his Distortion and Blue Hearts tour at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio on Wednesday, October 20th at 8:00pm, doors open at 7:00pm.
