Jeff Tweedy & Son Release More Tour Dates
Legendary front man of Wilco Jeff Tweedy and his son, Spencer, have teamed up to form their own band, appropriated dubbed Tweedy (the band also stars guitarist Jim Elkington; bassist Darin Gray; and keyboardist Liam Cunningham). We previously announced that the band would be playing a show as a part of the Nonesuch Records at BAM series, which is a bummer for fans not in the New York area. Well, fret not—they’ve released plans for a full-scale tour. It starts on September 19 at Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA; then moves through Bristol, TN; Philadelphia, PA; Ithaca, NY; Boston, MA; Burlington, VT; and Portland, ME, among others. For ticketing information, visit Tweedy’s website.
Formed in 1994 by the remaining members of Uncle Tupelo, Wilco has released eight studio albums, all with Tweedy at the helm. They came to media attention for 2002’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for some record label controversy—Reprise Records hated the album and dropped the band after hearing it. They then gave it to Wilco as part of a buy-out deal, and Wilco streamed it for free on their website. And you know what? Everyone loved it. (It was sold to Nonsuch Records and distributed through them). Their last album, The Whole Love, was released in 2011.
