When word came out late last month that a documentary chronicling the history of Mudhoney was in the final stages of production, it couldn't have been more welcome or overdue news. Frontman Mark Arm is the closest thing we have to our own version of Iggy Pop, albeit one with enough dignity to avoid ill-advised appearances on American Idol. While Arm and company are reliably riveting in a live context, tonight’s show will no doubt be even more old-school-over-the-top with the augmentation of the Unnatural Helpers, Sub Pop sales director Dean Whitmore’s ramshackle-but-tuneful garage-punk act, and former U-Men leader Tom Price's Desert Classic project.
