That would align with how perceived Bob's mood to be that night, just awkward, until our discussion on RT.

I had never really experienced Thai food until that night. Turned out I really liked it, especially pad thai and spring rolls.

I know I went to the bar a few times, hopefully I tipped her well. Can't remember what was comped. Back in the day on a limited budget, sometimes I would go to those things just to get some free apps and drinks. Good times.
I miss those days. I bartended at Nikkis Cafe right by The Monte Carlo. I swear we made more doing that than when we started careers. That was the best Sawatdee location by far.

That was a cool Sawatdee, went there often before shows at the Fine Line. Please tell your wife the guy that ordered a Bud Light and a New Castle wishes he had left a few bucks more.

Regarding Mould, I have had a few interactions with him since that have seemed much less awkward after shows, at his book signing and even at a Twins game (just said hello and told him I was going to his concert). The Sugar party felt like a dog and pony show, plus I think he's just more appreciative of support he's gotten in this town even though he hasn't lived here for 30 years now.

Because this is a Covers thread here was the Bob Mould Band (with help from the Suicide Commandos & his tour mgr) tribute to Prince the weekend he passed away, When You Were Mine

I was at that show! Great as always. I agree, he has seemed happy the last few shows. Super talkative. He almost talked too much at the Turf Club a few years ago. I wanted more songs lol.
Told my wife...she said she waited on him in the back and it was awkward to say the least.

I had the pleasure of seeing this song's author, Paul Westerberg, play it live at Hollywood's El Rey theater with his solo band on the Eventually Tour in the fall of 1996. Flash forward 6 months later at the same venue, I got to see Wilco cover it.

Here's Wilco performing the Replacements classic several years later with a very special guest from Mpls, though I don't think he's playing his typical bass. Color Me Impressed.


I am.

I have brought up Failure in one of the other threads.....but they did a great cover of Depeche Mode's 'Enjoy The Silence'.


And for those who like Tool or A Perfect Circle....Maynard James Keenan has noted his fandom of Failure. On the excellent album, Thirteenth Step, APC covered 'The Nurse Who Loved Me'.....originally off the criminally underrated 'Fantastic Planet'.

Just your average day in Dayton Ohio. Guided by Voices wandering down the alley to find The Breeders covering one of their ridiculously hooky 90 second blasts. Kim Deal has never looked cuter.
