Bob Mould will make his debut appearance on Austin City Limits, airing this Saturday, January 26 on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings).
The charged ACL TV performance features Bob with his stalwart band of bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster charting a journey through three decades of classic Mould, with highlights from the critically-acclaimed Silver Age holding their own alongside gems from his Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and solo catalogues. The blistering performance is a high-octane primer in Mould's mastery of melody, power and passion.

In other news, the Kickstarter campaign started in 2012 with the goal of bringing the now legendary See A Little Light: A Celebration of the Music and Legacy of Bob Mould all-star tribute concert to an audience beyond those who witnessed it at Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall on November 21, 2011 has proven a rousing success. On sale now, the film by Justin Mitchell documents in high quality audio and video once in a lifetime interpretations of Bob’s decades-spanning catalogue of Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and solo classics by the likes of Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Britt Daniel (Spoon), Ryan Adams, No Age, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler (The Hold Steady), Margaret Cho with Grant Lee Phillips, and Jessica Dobson (The Shins, Deep Sea Diver)–as well as the rehearsals, preparations, interactions and lead-up to this unforgettable night.
