Wilco week

Let’s not get carried away but If you do love Wilco, the best place to be is in LA this entire week.

Monday starts it off as Jeff Garlin interviews Jeff Tweedy at Largo.

Speaking of interviews read LA Times piece with drummer, Glenn Kotche. Yes, Wilco is so multi-faceted that even the drummer is interesting.

You can also see the band on Conan Monday night.

Tuesday, the band plays The Hollywood Palladium.

Wednesday, they play The Wiltern.

Friday, is the most intriguing as they play a theater I was previously unfamiliar with, The Los Angeles Theatre located in the Broadway Theatre district in Downtown Los Angeles.  This theatre was built in 1931 and partially financed by Charlie Chaplin so he could premiere his film, City Lights there.  It’s been used in the film, Charlie’s Angels and the TV show, Mad Men.  The Hyperion Theatre in Disneyland’s California Adventure is modeled after its look.  It is listed on The National Register of Historic Places.

Which one am I going to?  None of them, right now.  Wilco slowly unveiled its plans in Los Angeles and instead of my only option at the time to see them at the Palladium, I opted to travel to Santa Barbara to see them in February.

You can also purchase an iTunes session by the band on Tuesday.  “The 8-song album was recorded at Wilco’s Chicago loft in December and features new takes on songs from The Whole Love as well as a couple classic Wilco tunes and a version of Nick Lowe’s “Cruel to Be Kind” with Mr. Lowe himself.”

It’s a good time to be a Wilco fan.
