'Austin City Limits' and a crowd-funded concert movie
Bob Mould fans suddenly have an abundance of live Mould to enjoy.
The former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman announced today he'll appear on an episode of PBS' Austin City Limits airing this Sunday, January 26. Mould will play with his usual live band of bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster. Expect the setlist to span Mould's career, including material from bracing 2012 album Silver Age as well as Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and solo songs.
At the same time, Mould has revealed the Kickstarter funding campaign for a concert movie documenting last year's star-studded tribute concert has succeeded. Also drawing on songs from throughout Mould's career, See a Little Light: A Celebration of the Music and Legacy of Bob Mould features guest appearances from Nirvana/Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Spoon/Divine Fits' Britt Daniel, Ryan Adams, No Age, Craig Finn and Tad Kulber from the Hold Steady, comedian Margaret Cho with singer-songwriter Grant-Lee Phillips, and the Shins guitarist Jessica Dobson.
We've already seen Mould and Grohl doing the Dü's "Ice Cold Ice." The trailer above offers more glimpses of the concert movie, which was captured by Azealia Banks' "1991" video director Justin Mitchell. The full movie is on sale now at the See a Little Light website.
Mould's live performances won't be limited to video screens. He and his band are setting out on tour again in the flesh starting next month. What, no holograms?
