Last November at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, some of today’s most influential artists gathered to celebrate the music of Bob Mould. 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) all performed songs from Bob’s historic catalog. Until now, only the 2,265 concert attendees have seen these amazing performances. Fortunately, the entire evening was captured in stunning audio and high-quality video quality by filmmaker Justin Mitchell.
Starting today, we are launching a Kickstarter campaign to bring this amazing footage to life. Justin and his camera crew followed Bob and the other artists meticulously throughout their day catching the rehearsals, preparation, interactions — and of course the night’s unforgettable performances. Not only will the campaign fund this film, but it also offers Bob’s fans exclusive Kickstarter products such as a limited edition 7-inch single, a commemorative t-shirt, and a silkscreen print set. Additional products and information are featured below.

The front singer Johnny Pierce comes from a Pentecostal pastor family - where his parents lead anti-gay rallies and his mother proudly had a glbt section from a small bookstore removed. Pierce still holds on to being accepted by his parents but at the same times it’s counter-productive to be proud to be gay ” … because straight people are not proud to be straight.” And hopes one day that being gay is just being normal.

"God, sexuality can be so #confusing, right? Like, how are you supposed to tell if you’re gay or not and stuff? In this episode of VICE’s Slutever, Karley’s recent sex dreams about her gurl crush, Mistress Amanda Whip, cause her to ponder, "In sex, does everything have to be black and white—’straight’ or ‘gay’—or can you be somewhere in between, like, in a gray area?" Clearly, the only way to solve this dilemma is with a LESBIAN MAKEOVER!!! Obvz with the help of international playboy Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange); Lauren Dillard of the lesbi-friendly band CREEP; and of course, the most powerful alt lesbian of all time and member of Le Tigre, JD Samson." via VIC
