This isn't something you hear every day: Wilco is coming to Hartford!
Regardless of how you feel about their past couple of albums, they're legendary and put on a great show. You can't really miss the chance to see Nels Cline, either. Seriously, has Wilco ever played a show in CT?*
They're on tour for the next few months - surprisingly bypassing NYC and playing Hartford, Providence and Boston instead. They'll be playing at the Bushnell's Mortensen Hall on April 9th. Hop on over to their site for the complete tour schedule.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, so get em fast - I wouldn't be surprised if this sells out now that Wilco's popular with the soccer mom crowd...
Another point of news on the Tweedy front: Wilco recently joined Beck Hansen, Leslie Feist and many others to cover Skip Spence's fragmented masterpiece Oar as part of Beck's minblowingly fun Record Club.
Here's a vid of them covering "Little Hands," which coincidentally is one of my favorite songs of all time:
