Wilco (The Festival)

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, The Autumn Defense, and Pronto. They also have some geekier music stuff planned: An interactive guitar pedal exhibit with Nels Cline, concert poster screening demos, and “planned workshops by luthiers.” The festival site is the huge, multi-building Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, so getting around this festival (which happens mid-August) will probably feel a little bit like the first day of college. Tickets are $86.50 now, $99.50 after June 1. Get them at the Solid Sound Festival site or at Wilco World.
