For those not Boston-local I should explain. The Paradise is a very popular show venue in town. Lots of acts come there. It's a horrid place to see a show - sightlines are bad, acoustics are awful, and the floor squelches. No, I'm not making that up. But still, they book a lot of acts, including Bob Mould.
I'm going to see him there on May 1 - if anyone wants to join me (us) please do. He's that good.
