Glenn Kotche playing a show w/ Buke & Gass (and secret guest), that’s a lot of Wilco in NYC this weekend
Buke & Gass at MHOW in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
We forgot a show in our recent roundup of Wilco-related happenings.
Jad Abumrad of Radiolab is hosting Radiolab Concerts: Curious Sounds on Saturday (6/18) at the NYU Skirball Center. The event will feature Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche (Wilco), Buke & Gass, and a "special mystery performer" (anyone know who it is?). Abumrad will discuss music and sound with the guests, in addition to a performance by each one. Tickets are on sale now and you can save $5 by using the code "radiolab." Flyer below.
As previously mentioned, John Stirratt and Pat Sansone of Wilco play a show at the Living Room the same day as Glenn's show, and Nels Cline plays a show at Blue Note the night before, late the night before, after midnight actually (so also technically Saturday). That's a lot of Wilco in NYC on Saturday.
For Buke & Gass the NYU show happens right before they leave for a tour of Europe. While over there they'll play at least one show with their Metallica-collaborating friend Lou Reed who plays as part of a free show in Prospect Park tonight (6/16). Buke & Gass play a free show in Prospect Park in August with Ra Ra Riot and Delicate Steve. All of their dates below...
