Legendary guitarist and songwriter Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü and Sugar has launched a Kickstarter. The project is a film documenting "See A Little Light," last year's epic Los Angeles concert that celebrated Mould's career with performances by 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). Only 2,275 people experienced this in person, but filmmaker Justin Mitchell and his team captured the event in high-quality audio and video. A trailer is above. Hüsker Dü was the third concert I ever attended (following Styx and The Police) and Mould's music has inspired me ever since -- I hope he hits his goal. Pledge rewards include the likes of t-shirts, signed guitars, and tickets/meet-and-greet with Bob at future concerts. Bob Mould: The Walt Disney Concert Hall Film
