Jeff Tweedy

The various members of Wilco tend to stay very, very busy, whether or not they’re at work with their main band. So it’s not too much of a surprise to see that frontman Jeff Tweedy has booked himself a round of solo dates, mostly across the Western half of the country, for later this year. Wilco haven’t quite finished with their obligations this year; they’ll play the Austin City Limits festival next month. But when that’s done, Tweedy will play a couple of weeks’ worth of solo sets, including multiple-night stands in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Check the dates below.

12/03 – Kansas City, MO @ Uptown Theater
12/05 – Denver, CO @ Paramount Theatre
12/06 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Kingsbury Hall
12/08 – Seattle, WA @ Moore Theatre
12/10 – Davis, CA @ Robert And Margit Mondavi Center For The Performing Arts
12/11-12 – San Francisco, CA @ The Fillmore
12/13 – Santa Barbara, CA @ Granada Theatre
12/15-19 – Los Angeles, CA @ Largo

  1. Jeff Tweedy playing Largo sounded so exciting. A beloved artist, whose band has sold out The Greek, playing in a tiny intimate setting over multiple nights. Amazing.

    So excited to see that four solo Jeff Tweedy shows were added to the calendar. So I was on the site at 10 a.m. and ready to purchase my tickets.

    Well, the site crashed. I spent forty-five minutes hitting refresh in multiple browsers and multiple tabs. Looking online my experience was a common one.

    The net result was that some people were able to get tickets while many, many others were completely shut out of the system. And completely frustrated for forty-five minutes. Way to make fans like your venue.

    I know things crash, but it’s how Largo handled it that I find completely deplorable:

    1. Not ensuring they had enough bandwidth to handle the traffic. DUH.

    2. They didn’t suspend the sale until everything was working normally again. This would have ensured the process was fair and the playing field was level.

    3. This is the worst part of all: some tickets were released because of the server issues and Largo raised the price on the now hard to find tickets. Um… sort of feels like they were scalping tickets to their own venue!

    Hope Tweedy and the band pick a different venue next time.

  2. It was a good show, not as good as the solo ones in Chicago @ the Vic but Tweedy’s cranky stage persona is losing its cuteness and borders on audience abuse. He’s becoming the Don Rickles of musicians-the more he insults the audience the more they love it. Personally, I wish he’d leave it at home and just play songs.
