Bob Mould took over The Colorado Sound today, digging deep into his musical influences. The leader of the hugely influential bands Hüsker Dü and Sugar begins his takeover in prototypical fashion with equally influential English punk rock band, The Buzzcocks.

Along the way, Mould cites modern influences like Interpol and Gary Clark Jr. and vintage performers like Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the so-called “Godmother of Rock and Roll.”  Showcasing his diverse taste, Mould ends his set with some house-styled songs from Yves Tumor and Toro y Moi. 

The Bob Mould Band is in Colorado for two Colorado Sound Presents shows. Catch him Monday, February 25 at Washington’s in Fort Collins and Tuesday, February 26 at the Gothic Theatre in Denver.
