Bob Mould

25 Years of Workbook
with special guest Ryley Walker

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

  • Bob Mould

    Bob Mould is playing select, intimate dates in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of his seminal first solo album, Workbook. Bob, along with long-time bassist Jason Narducy, will be performing selections from Workbook as well as other songs in Bob's catalog that sit nicely alongside this album.

    Released in 1989 - a year after Hüsker Dü disbanded - Workbook is a singular statement of renewal. It has proven an inspiration to a generation of musicians ranging from Dave Grohl to Ben Gibbard. Ryan Adams describes the album as “the sound of the internal and the subconscious, of dream, of regret, and of a silence that was lingering.”

    Ryley Walker

    Having kicked around Chicago's experimental free/noise music scene for several years, Ryley recently turned to a folk-rock sound inspired by some of his heroes, among them Tim Hardin, Tim Buckley, and Bert Jansch.
