Watch Jeff Tweedy Play Kimmel With His Sons, Blake Mills, Liam Finn, & James Elkington

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy released his great solo album WARM late last year, and he’s kicking off the tour in support of it this week with a residency in LA. To mark the occasion, he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to perform one of the album’s best songs with an all-star band.

Performing the warm, empathetic lope “I Know What It’s Like,” Tweedy was joined by (if my eyes don’t deceive me) his son Spencer on drums, his other son Sam on background vocals, Blake Mills and James Elkington on guitar, and Liam Finn on bass. They also performed “Don’t Forget” as an online exclusive.

This was presumably a one-off arrangement for TV — Tweedy’s tour is a proper solo venture, just the man and a guitar, which is its own kind of special experience — but man, I would definitely pay to see this lineup on tour. They lived up to the lofty standard set by Tweedy’s usual band.

Watch the performance below, where you can also find Tweedy’s newly expanded tour itinerary and even a few Wilco dates.
