Screen Shots: Wilco@TinyDesk

Jeff Tweedy and Wilco perform in NYC for NPR's Tiny Desk unplugged sessions.

Wilco, naming itself in Chicago in 1994 after the aviation acronym for "Will Comply", is an American alternative rock band based in Chicago who released The Whole Love on September 27th 2011 - a follow-up to their unexpectedly brilliant Wilco (The Album) which placed band leader Jeff Teedy into a class of commercially and critically successful artists such as Arlo Guthrie, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Thom Yorke, Scott Weiland and Kurt Cobain. In other words: pretty damn good company to be in.

Wilco is currently on a year long world concert tour that brought them to Louisville's 3-day Forecastle Fest on Sunday July 15th, in Chicago for the Hideout Block Party September 15th and in Columbia, Missouri for Live on Ninth Street before heading into the West Coast portion of the tour in Oregon and California.
