Last November, a talented array of modern musicians (including Dave Grohl, Britt Daniel, Ryan Adams, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler) gathered at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to celebrate and pay tribute to the music of Bob Mould. Those of us who weren't able to travel to the West Coast to witness this wonderful, intimate evening have just had to make due with shaky YouTube videos of the various performances and second-hand stories from those who were lucky enough to be there. Until now.
The entire evening was thankfully captured in high-quality audio and video by filmmaker Justin Mitchell, and Bob Mould himself has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the past and future fees necessary to bring a film documenting the night, See A Little Light: A Celebration of the Music and Legacy of Bob Mould, to completion.
Check out the trailer for See A Little Light below, as well as some of the exclusive Kickstarter rewards on offer for contributing to the cause.
As a thank-you for your support, there are plenty of exclusive offers at varying contribution levels, including a limited-edition 7-inch, mp3's of Mould playing Copper Blue songs at San Francisco's Bottom Of The Hill back in February, a silkscreen poster, a commemorative t-shirt, and of course copies of the See A Little Light DVD.
The higher levels of contributions feature some truly exclusive rewards, including signed copies of various Mould-related albums, a guitar signed by Bob himself, and a sure to be entertaining meet-and-greet with Bob Mould after one of his upcoming shows.
But the real draw of this campaign is the documentary film itself, and getting the chance to see and hear these talented musicians reinterpret Bob Mould's distinguished back catalog, as well as perform with the legend himself.
Everyone who contributes $10 or more to the Kickstarter campaign will receive a high-quality digital download of the film by this Christmas--talk about a perfect gift for the music lover in your family.
Here's the full list of performers in See A Little Light:
Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)
Britt Daniel (Spoon)
