Bob Mould Reads from His “See a Little Light : The Trail of Rage and Melody” |SF CA June 28

by Accidental Bear

The perfect reason to call in sick today. I will write you a doctor’s note.


Bob Mould is perhaps best known as the founder of Hüsker Dü, one of the most influential and enduring bands to emerge from the punk scene of the 1980s. Hüsker Dü was part of a movement that included such seminal bands as label mates Black Flag and the Meat Puppets, and influenced and inspired up-and-comers such as Nirvana, Soul Asylum, the Pixies and countless other musicians. 

 

After Mould decided to close the book on Hüsker Dü in 1988, he launched a creatively fulfilling, critically-lauded and commercially successful solo career. Never content to stay in one place — either figuratively or literally — for long, Mould embarked on an odyssey that included a three-year stint as the leader of indie-rock band Sugar, a foray into electronic/dance music that continues to this day as part of the DJ collective known as BLOWOFF, and even a brief sojourn into the world of professional wrestling.

Much has been written about the notoriously private Mould over the years. Now, for the first time, he shares his reminiscences in SEE A LITTLE LIGHT. Mould opens up with remarkable candor about his early years in a rural farming community in northern New York, life with an alcoholic parent, his own struggles with addiction and recovery, the ups and downs of his career as a musician, his intimate relationships, and his long journey to self-acceptance and happiness as a gay man. A classic story of individualism and perseverance, SEE A LITTLE LIGHT is an inspiring account of one man’s driving force, which forever altered the shape of American music. 

Bob Mould is an American musician, singer, composer, producer and DJ. He currently lives in San Francisco. Co-writer Michael Azerrad’s groundbreaking, best-selling history of the American punk era, Our Band Could Be Your Life, singles out Bob Mould as one of music’s key influences.
