Video: Bob Mould plays ‘Silver Age’ track ‘Keep Believing’ on ‘Conan’

Bob Mould was in Los Angeles on Monday ahead of the first of his last two Copper Blue shows — after tonight’s L.A. concert and an Austin, Texas, appearance on Friday, he says he’s done playing the Sugar album front-to-back — and squeezed in an appearance on “Conan” to tear through Silver Age track “Keep Believing.”

As for the end his Copper Blues shows this fall, Mould writes:

“Now it’s time to say farewell to Copper Blue. I’m not retiring the songs — many of them will be in my live sets forever — but I am putting the “start to finish” reading of Copper Blue to rest after playing it at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, CA on October 30 and then at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin TX on November 2. It was wonderful to pay tribute to Copper Blue by opening the 2012 shows with a start to finish reading of the album. By the end of the North American tour it felt a bit predictable. The longtime followers know my restlessness all too well, so my need to shake things up should be no surprise.”

Speaking of Sugar, there’s still time to enter our contest to win Merge Records’ new reissues of the band’s catalog. Just head over here to enter before Friday.
