Iconic musician, DJ, producer and author Bob Mould is currently on tour, presenting a series of live events to celebrate the release of his critically-lauded autobiography SEE A LITTLE LIGHT: The Trail of Rage and Melody (Little, Brown), including readings, musical performances and DJ sets.
Mould has confirmed that he will perform as a DJ on select dates for the Foo Fightersâ€™ fall tour, including shows in Oakland, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City, and Newark.
In recent years, Mould has won a great deal of acclaim for his work as a DJ. BLOWOFF, the duo he founded with producer/remixer Rich Morel regularly performs to packed houses in DC, New York City, San Francisco, Provincetown, Chicago and San Diego. In addition, the Distortion+ dance party he hosts with musician Chris Xefos has quickly become a Bay Area institution.
Mould recently opened for the Foo Fighters over two nights at the Milton Keynes Bowl in England and spun in front of 65,000 people per night.
Bob Mould exploded onto the music scene in the â€˜80s with legendary punk trio HÃ¼sker DÃ¼. After that bandâ€™s dissolution, Mould went on to enjoy tremendous critical and commercial success as leader of the alternative rock band Sugar and as a solo artist, producer and DJ.
His recently-published autobiography, SEE A LITTLE LIGHT: The Trail of Rage and Melody, has been praised as an â€œaudacious and movingâ€ (New York Times) â€œtouching tale of self-discovery.â€ (Time Magazine)
Mouldâ€™s enduring musical legacy will be honored at a sold-out tribute concert on November 21 at LAâ€™s Walt Disney Concert Hall.
The evening, called â€œSee A Little Light: A Celebration of the Music and Legacy of Bob Mouldâ€ will feature Dave Grohl, Ben Gibbard, Ryan Adams, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of the Hold Steady, Best Coast, No Age and Margaret Cho with Grant-Lee Phillips.
