Jeff Tweedy announces book tour for new memoir


In addition to his new solo album, Jeff Tweedy also has a memoir coming out November 13. It’s titled LET’S GO (SO WE CAN GET BACK): A Memoir of Recording and Discording with Wilco, Etc and that pretty much sums up its contents right down to the etc. But here’s the back-of-the-book synopsis:

In his long-awaited memoir, Jeff will tell stories about his childhood in Belleville, Illinois; the St. Louis record store, rock clubs, and live-music circuit that sparked his songwriting and performing career; and the Chicago scene that brought it all together. He’ll also talk in-depth about his collaborators in Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, and more; and write lovingly about his parents, wife Susie, and sons, Spencer and Sam.

In support of the memoir, Jeff is going on a book tour that kicks off with a release event Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre on November 13. That show is in partnership with Community Bookstore and is being billed as “An Evening with Jeff Tweedy.” Tickets are on sale now and a copy of the book is included. The book tour also hits Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Chicago. Dates are listed below.

Jeff’s new album, WARM, is out November 30 and he has non-book shows too.
