Bob Mould Plays The Field

2005_02_10_mould.jpgFirst, Jackie Kennedy’s pearls and now this! Former Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould returns to Chicago on February 17th for the Field Museum’s monthly Play The Field event. The museum touts this as a way for you to see its exhibits and maybe meet that oh-so-cultured special someone as you sip a cocktail or two. And we’re sure that’s nice and all but…frickin’ Bob Mould!

Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased through the Field Museum’s website or at Otherwise, it’s $20 at the door. Your ticket price includes your first beer as well as admission to the event and to the Jackie Kennedy exhibit, which is normally $25 all by itself. The five-hour (!!!) event starts at 6 PM as they’re aiming for the after work/my-life-resembles-the-last-Fountains-of-Wayne-album crowd. The Katie Todd Band will be opening.

With former Replacement bassist Tommy Stinson playing Double Door tonight, if we can get Dave Pirner to play a show at Schuba’s before the end of February we’ll have a Minneapolis hat trick.
