Wilco at Sasquatch (more by Josh Darr)
Wilco

The Autumn Defense (John Stirratt and Pat Sansone of Wilco) have announced a NYC show before they play WIlco's Solid Sound Festival later this month. The band will play The Living Room on June 18 at 9 PM, before Joseph Arthur, who Sansone collaborated with in Holding the Void, plays one of his ten shows at the same venue.

John Stirratt and Jeff Tweedy's ex-Uncle Tupelo bandmate Jay Farrar also has a few shows coming up. Those include October 14 and 15 at City Winery in NYC. Tickets are on sale.

Nels Cline of Wilco plays Le Poisson Rouge with Marc RIbot tonight (6/15). Tickets are still available. Nels also plays Blue Note on Friday (6/17) as part of the Spontaneous Construction series. The show is part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival. Tickets are on sale. He will also play with The Les Paul Trio at The Iridium on July 11 as part of their Les Paul Guitar Tribute Mondays. Nels plays Solid Sound with Thurston Moore under their Pillow Wand moniker.

Jeff Tweedy has no NYC dates but you can catch him at Winnipeg Folk Festival with Mountain Man, Dawes, Lucinda Williams and others on July 6-10.

I bet Wilco will announce an NYC show soon. They have a new album coming out this fall.

I think that the only band
that I hate more than the Decemberists
is Wilco
Truly, truly
boring music
I would rather listen to
the ranting homeless man
flapping his dong around
than to bear with the whine
of Mr. Tweedy once more

nobody loves jeff tweedy more than jeff tweedy does

Wilco post YHF is a mess. Ghost had a few highlights, but was mostly a self-indulgent wank-fest. I don't know why anyone is still hanging onto them after Snore Blue Snore.

The long boring bastard band.

Sonic Youth/Wilco Summer Stage shows were great...maybe I should leave my memories of Wilco in the 2000-2001 era?

....2003 sorry

Farrar solo shows are great. Expect Tupelo tunes, songs from Trace and Sideways, along with other highlights across his career. Hopefully some new tunes mixed in. Always good.

Totally agree with above- Wilco is a snore now. Maybe not quite a snore-that may be too harsh considering that some ofthe band is super tight and badass. But if you have seen them before Sky Blue Sky, or Wilco the album (ugh) you're good.

If you haven't here's how i goes:- Niles Cline will spasm as he solos (which was surprising back in '03 and is now routine and mildly interesting), Glenn Kotche will be awesome and then stand on his throne for Heavy Metal Drummer (which again, was fun in '03 and is now timed perfectly into the set list-seriously), and Mr. Tweedy's other back-ups will do, well, not much.

It's 2011 Jeff and Co. Time to mix it up or just finally 'fess up and admit you're the 2000's Eagles.

Ouch, that Eagles comment is harsh...

I wish Wilco would do some Prospect Park shows!

Posted by Anonymous | June 15, 2011 6:43 PM

whatever, wilco is still one of the best touring bands in rock these days. shows are always a blast and they are tight as fuck.

Yessiree, 8:48. With you on that. Everyone is a hater.

Posted by Count crapula | June 15, 2011 10:08 PM

People still listen to Wilco? This isn't fucking 2000, come on people. Times change.

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 1:05 AM

@1:05- exactly.

Totally lame Dad Rock.

Do any single girls under 30 even go see this band? It's middle-aged dudes who have man-crushes on Jeff Tweedy and wish they could play guitar with their girlfriends and wives.

The truth will set you free.

As a married late-30-something, I still enjoy Wilco. Rocked out to Summerteeth in the '20s and now I enjoy the more mellow stuff. I hated YHF, it sounds like a weak attempt at trying to be Kid A.

Mellow is good. It's not like some pussy-rock like Sufjan, Andrew Bird and the like.

if being a 35yo married wilco fan makes me lame, then i'll take it. however, being less than that and accusing wilco of being shit just makes you sound young and stupid. you'll find your wings someday, hopefully. keep staying on edge though, you're doing a fantastic job.

It's funny how everyone used to gloss over this band when I initially wrote them off. Now that I just got into them, it seems bashing is the way to go. Lucky for me, I always remember that I don't give a shit about following trends/trendy behavior.

10:11 rock on! I still like Duran Duran I can guarantee most on here wouldn't touch that with a 10 ft pole.

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 10:15 AM

I don't hate Wilco so much as I think Tweedy is a dimwit who needs a serious beating.

LMFAO
Yes, it does make you a pussy bereft of musical taste
This band's music is the soundtrack to an ass-whooping
