You might know him as the founding member of Husker Du and Sugar. I know him as the guy who was standing in front of me at First Avenue, blocking my view of the stage. (Yes, I am clueless.)

And now he's an author, as well. Bob Mould will be at Magers & Quinn on June 14 to launch his memoir, "See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody."  The evening begins at 7:30 with Norwegian novelist Johan Harstad reading from "Buzz Aldren: What Happened to You in All the Confusion?" Mould takes the stage at 9 p.m. and will read and autograph books.

The next night, he'll perform at the Dakota on the Nicollet Mall.

Star Trib writer Chris Riemenschneider has interviewed him--watch for his story later this month. Here's what Chris said about Mould's new book:  "It's loaded with Twin Cities references from his Husker Du days. The book opens with a story of Mould getting kicked out of a clothing-optional hotel in Palm Springs the same day he last played Coachella. Pretty blunt stuff, in other words."

Blunt, but fun, I think.

Magers & Quinn is at 3038 Hennepin Av. S. in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. The book appearance is free.
