Cymbals Eat Guitars at MHOW, July 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Cymbals Eat Guitars

As we've mentioned before, Bob Mould is playing a free show tonight (9/7) at Williamsburg Park where he'll be perfoming Sugar's 1992 debut, Copper Blue, in its entirety front-to-back, as well as a set that spans his career from Husker Du to his terrific new solo album, The Silver Age. What hasn't been publicized so much is that Staten Island indie rock lovers Cymbals Eat Guitars will be opening the show (and not Howler as originally advertised). Doors are at 5:30 PM, CEG are on at 6:30 PM with Bob on around 7:45 PM.

Cymbals Eat Guitars will also open for Bob on upcoming dates in Boston (9/10) and Philadelphia (9/11). If you haven't checked out their most recent album, Lenses Alien, it's quite good and you can stream it via Spotify and watch their video of "Definite Darkness" below.

In other Williamsburg Park news, Saturday is Riot Fest Brooklyn with Gogol Bordello, Descendents, Hot Water Music, The Bronx, Screaming Females, The Menzingers and Larry & His Flask all performing. Doors are at 3 PM and music goes all day and tickets are still available.

Also coming up is a free Jayhawks show at Williamsburg Park on Saturday, September 15 with openers Nicole Atkins and Chris Lee. Doors are 5:30 PM for that one.

Cymbals Eat Guitars video is below.

Is he playing Copper Blue before the other stuff or is it the other way around?

Every recent Mould setlist seems to be Copper Blue to start off the show.

the way weather forecast looks, tomorrow's fest might not be much of a riot.

Great show. Bob needs to come back and play a smaller indoor show so he can turn up the amps with that band and level the place.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 2:22 AM

yes, it is too bad that he didn't play webster hall as planned.

Mass exodus for the doors when Mould started to play his new stuff.

^^^^ Not true

Great show and great set, Band killed it, but the place was empty, whats wrong with you Brooklynites, know your history FFS!

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 10:47 AM

Very not true. He played Husker stuff at the end too!

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 10:47 AM

set list?

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 11:17 AM

Anyone that left when he started playing his new songs missed about 7-8 Husker Du songs.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 11:31 AM

People stayed. 9:51 wasn't there. New stuff sounded great as did the Huskers material in the encore.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 12:15 PM

Seemed like some people weren't aware that those were Husker Du songs and thought he was playing stuff from the new record.

Man, he was on, that was one smokin set.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 12:27 PM

If I remember correctly he did the following Husker songs at the end:

Hardly Getting Over It
Could You Be The One?
Chartered Trips
I Apologize
In A Free Land
Something I Learned Today
Makes No Sense At All

And there was no mass exodus after Copper Blue as 9:51 claims.

Excellent show.

amazing show

Great show. Weird he did not say anything to the crowd until about the 8th song.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 1:17 PM

not weird at all, that's how he does it - tears through a batch of songs in one shot before giving any sort of breather. he's always done it that way, and here he was doing an album, so it makes sense.

I didn't suspect grant would have been there but the introduction I couldn't hear and wouldn't know what he looks like anyway. Being a husker du set I was just guessing.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 1:50 PM

way way too baggage for that to happen at this point.
BM simply doesn't care for the guy. Hart would want it to happen, but he also doesn't do too much to mend the situation - by now some of it is simply business. (a reason why there are no Husker remasters/reissues, which is a true shame.)
Bob simply isn't interested in any connection with those guys.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 2:55 PM

It was half-empty which I thought was sad for a legend playing a free show. But agreed they played a great show and set list.

Posted by Anonymous | September 8, 2012 3:28 PM

Neither Bob nor Grant wants anything to do with Greg. Greg, who is a successful chef in Minnesota, seems to feel the same way. There is way too much baggage for Bob and Grant to work together again. They have played together once since the breakup and that was for the Karl Mueller benefit in Minneapolis. As far as reissues go, there have been some hints that some sort of deal has been cut with Greg Ginn. Maybe those SST records will finally get remastered and released in deluxe editions, but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't know who is dumber: the grant hart was there troll or the idiots responding to the troll. We all know HD's history, the person was just being a troll.
