Watch Members Of Wilco, Shellac, American Football, & More Join Wire On “Pink Flag”

Wire’s classics tend to be terse, minimal constructions that don’t necessarily lend themselves to massive, sprawling all-star superjams. But this past weekend, one of them got the superjam treatment anyway. Wire headlined their won DRILL: CHICAGO festival over the weekend, and we’ve already posted video of them playing “Drill” with St. Vincent. And they also… More »

Wilco’s Canceled Indiana Concert Is Back On

Wilco canceled a scheduled appearance at the Murat Theater in Indianapolis earlier this week in protest of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a move implicitly criticized by Indiana’s music businesses in a joint statement asking artists to turn their Indiana concerts into protest events.

Wilco Cancel Indianapolis Show In Protest Of Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act

Last week, Indiana governor Mike Pence signed a disgusting piece of legislation into law that will allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people based on the grounds of “religious freedom.” (Well, the actual wording of the law is a little more complicated than that, but that’s what it will end up doing in effect.) I… More »

Wilco @ LC Pavilion, Columbus 9/3/14

“We haven’t played in about a year,” Jeff Tweedy smirked, “so you guys are getting us fresh.” It’s true; the concert Wednesday in Columbus was Wilco’s first of 2014, and at first it felt like a dusting off. They began with a batch of their oldest tunes — “Misunderstood,” “Forget The Flowers,” and “Passenger Side”… More »

Tweedy – “Flowering”

Remember how Wilco posted Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for free online until they could find a label to release it?

Tweedy’s debut album… More »

Tweedy – “Diamond Light Pt. 1″ (Stereogum Premiere)

The songs released so far from Jeff and Spencer Tweedy’s Sukierae — “I’ll Sing It,” “Summer Noon,” and “Wait For Love” — have been relatively straightforward folk-rock tracks that ostensibly could’ve popped up any time during Tweedy’s two-decade tenure with Wilco. “Diamond Light – Part 1,” on the other hand, is a lengthy experimental excursio… More »
