Linkage: Bob Mould tribute, plus The Cure, The Fall, Fugazi, Bush Tetras’ Laura Kennedy

A collection of some interesting links we stumbled across this week:

Video: Dave Grohl, Ryan Adams, Britt Daniel pay tribute to Bob Mould Earlier this week, a host of rockers feted the former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman, playing songs by those bands and some of Mould’s solo work, before the man of the hour joined in on a few songs and a closing run through “See A Little Light.” Check out a compilation of video footage from the Los Angeles gig.

Photos: The Cure @ Beacon Theatre A set of photos by Aleksandar Maćašev of Friday night’s first of three “Reflections” concerts in New York City, plus the setlist, which reveals that The Cure deviated slightly from its standard set for these three-album shows and ended with a final encore of 1985’s “Inbetween Days.” [Fucking Nostalgic]

We Only Have This Excerpt: Mark E Smith Interviewed The Fall’s frontman discusses his band’s new album, the just-released Ersatz G.B., as well as his literary influences, the Stone Roses reunion (“the reason they reform is that the tax bill’s coming”), the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Internet (“it’s the tongue of Satan”). [The Quietus]

Fugazi Rises Again, in Online Archive A look at the upcoming online concert archive from the dormant post-hardcore band; beginning Thursday, the first batch of 130 of a planned 800 live shows will be posted to the band’s live site and will be sold on a slicing scale of $1 to $100 per show, with a suggested price of $5. Hear audio samples, too. [New York Times]

Laura Kennedy of Bush Tetras, R.I.P. The original bassist and co-founder of the No Wave band passed away last week after battling Hepatitis C for more than two decades, suffering liver failure and ultimately undergoing a liver transplant. The band reunited, without her, a few years ago to help raise money for their ailing bandmate. [Brooklyn Vegan]
