At the precipice of a new year, there’s only ever one important question to be asked at this moment in December: What will we remember?
At a tour stop in Chicago on Friday night, a troupe of all-star performers including Bob Dylan, Wilco and My Morning Jacket captured much of that old folkie spirit of hootenanny collaboration and musical joie de vivre to an arena of fans. And rarely has such a six-hour musical lecture left such an impression.
This Thanksgiving, Chicago rock band Wilco has plenty to be thankful for. At Wednesday night’s concert in Madison, Wis., the group went a long way to express its appreciation to their deserving fans.
Chicago’s ever-evolving alt-rockers Wilco have hit the road again brandishing a new musical philosophy, a cache of new songs and yet another new lineup. David reviews whether these changes are for the better.
Wilco returns with a fiercely experimental album. But can the Chicago-based band’s new record trump their much-praised breakthrough.
Another year and yet another list. Soundbytes gives a rundown of what music you should add to your collection.
They’ve had to overcome record-company politics and the loss of a key band member, but Wilco’s biggest challenge might be proving whether they’re as good a live act as they once were. If the group’s concert Tuesday night is any indication, they’re better than ever.
Wilco recorded their bravest album yet and got dropped by their record label for their effort. Now, their terrific new album, “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,” headlines a batch of band-related projects hitting music stores.
A newly released BBC documentary, “Man In The Sand,” takes viewers on the journey that saw Billy Bragg and Wilco attempting to put music to incomplete works by folk-music icon Woody Guthrie. In the process, the musicians literally follow in Guthrie’s footsteps, visiting the places that he stopped in America’s heartland and giving an insider’s view of the recording process.
