Scenes From Sasquatch! 2011

Sasquatch! took place over four nights this Memorial Day Weekend.

Wild Beasts Smother Under The Influence

Hopefully by now you've heard Smother, the third album from Wild Beasts. As with all their records, it feels like it comes out of nowhere. And as always, I have trouble finding reference points to give people when recommending them (Antony? Talking Heads?). That's why I asked the band to talk about some of… More »

Scenes From New Orleans Jazz Fest 2011

Wilco, The Strokes, Lupe Fiasco, The Decemberists, and many many others headed down to New Orleans for the week-long New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Wilco (The Record Label)

Wilco ran their own festival last year, have their own coffee blend, and gave their blessing to sandwiches named after them. Their own record label seems like the next logical step, or rather, a step you expected from them a few albums back. Unfortunately the label's called dBpm Records and not Wilco… More »

Jeff Tweedy Covers John Lennon “God”

Last week Paul McCartney paid homage to John Lennon to mark the 30th Anniversary of his bandmate's death. Obviously you didn't need to know Lennon to be affected by his murder, and tributes were various.

Wilco: The Coffee Is Here … What Should They Brand Next?

Nothing goes better with a Wilco sandwich than a delicious cup of Wilco direct trade coffee. According to the band's website, some of Wilco's members visited Inteligentsia Coffee's Cupping Lap to pick their favorite variety. They settled on a coffee from the Sidama region of Ethiopiam, grown by the Homecho Waeno co-op. Here'… More »

Wilco – “Bull Black Nova” Live Video

This unreleased backstage version of "Bull Black Nova" comes from the same La Blogothèque session where Wilco did "Country Disappeared" back in February.

Wilco Go “Deeper Down” On Ferguson

Wilco -- featuring a rough-looking Jeff Tweedy -- were on Craig Ferguson's show last night. Tweedy could be tired from festival planning. The band just added Avi Buffalo, Vetiver, guitarist Sir Richard Bishop, Mountain Man, Brenda, The Books, and the Deep Blue Organ Trio to their Solid Sound Festival line up. "Deeper Down" goe… More »

Wilco (The Festival)

Surprisingly, it won't be in Chicago (maybe one artist-curated festival is enough). Wilco's first Solid Sound Festival, in North Adams, MA, is a three-day event with "art, music, comedy, and interactivity." It'll include a headlining set from Wilco, as well as performances by the band's numerous side projects: On Fillmore, The Nels Cline Singers,… More »

Wilco Take “Country Disappeared” To Take Away Show

Wilco played the gorgeous Olympia theater in Montreal on February 27, and the timing was perfect for a Takeaway Show, if only La Blogothèque and the band could work out a time: "Sometimes we tell ourselves that no, the band is too famous, too important, that their label would never let them do a TakeMore »

Wilco Cover Neil Young, Help Haiti, Head To Olympics

A week or so ago we told you that when Wilco's not covering Skip Spence, they're covering Neil Young. They initially made like Shakey for the 2010 MusiCares event. Judging from unkind reviews the show received, they were probably the only band that rehearsed, so why not continue covering Neil Young? They did… More »
