It's hard to believe, but this year marks the 20th anniversary of the band Wilco. They've recently announced plans to celebrate the anniversary with a pair of releases, including the first-ever best of compilation from the group and also a collection of rarities that they say, "We're pretty sure you're gonna love."
They're also on the road playing a few shows to celebrate the milestone and as if that wasn't enough, frontman and creative mastermind Jeff Tweedy will release his solo debut under the banner of Tweedy on September 23rd.
Here's a sampling from the Tweedy album, a tune called "Summer Noon."
Wilco was in town this past Thursday (September 4th) for a rare Cleveland area show at the Akron Civic Theatre. It was Wilco's first area appearance since their show at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium in February of 2008. Their return was long overdue and it was great to have them back!
Our good friend Amy Weiser was there with her camera to capture scenes from a great night of music in Akron. Check out the gallery of photos below!
The Winchester Music Hall and Addicted to Vinyl are pleased to present a tribute evening to a longtime Cleveland favorite, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bruce Springsteen, happening on Saturday, November 20th at The Winchester (doors are at 7pm). Tickets are $10.00.
With the forthcoming release of The Promise, Bruce Springsteen's incredibly massive box set dedicated to his classic Darkness on the Edge of Town album, we will have a listening and viewing party to finally experience what many of us have been waiting for over 2 years.
