It's a good day in music when Bob Mould is trending on Twitter, and the former Hüsker Dü frontman turned solo songwriter and memoirist did just that yesterday evening as he kicked off a series of Twin Cities events to celebrate the release of his new book, See a Little Light.
Mould's first stop yesterday afternoon was at the Current's UBS Forum in downtown St. Paul, where he played a handful of songs and chatted at length with Mary Lucia about the evolution of his musical career (his in-studio will be broadcast on the Current tomorrow at 4:30 p.m.). It's clear that Lucia and Mould have worked up a rapport over the years, and their conversation remained focused and thought-provoking as they wound through his history with Husker Du, leaving the band and retreating to a farm in Pine City, and then somewhat accidentally forming Sugar.
