It's the day after Bob Mould released "Silver Age," his best album in years, and, no less significantly, played the "Letterman" show for the first time ever. He's fielding interviews in his hotel room, semicompulsively checking the album's online sales figures and just generally "basking in the glow" of a career that has regained traction after a decade of uneven releases that included forays into vocoder-heavy electronica and dance-pop.
Mould, 51, kick-started his comeback last year with the release of his memoir, "See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody." It detailed his years leading the legendary Minnesota punk-rock band Husker Du and the only slightly less legendary Sugar, as well as his decision to come out of the closet.
8 p.m. Friday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St.; $24; 773-549-4140 or etix.com
