Wilco Running California in June. 22nd and 23rd at the Wiltern, LA

The Chicago based rock band has added dates to surround the Berkeley Greek theatre show on June 27th and will be starting in Pomona and making their way up to Lake Tahoe for a week long California run with five total dates.

The Chicago Alt. Country originator and genre melting singer-songwriter Jeff Tweedy has booked Wilco for a two-night residence at the Wiltern theatre in L.A. on June 22nd and 23rd. As soon as Wilco booked the Berkeley Greek for June 27th buzz began to swirl about the open week before and the possibility of a run through southern California. The fans have been appeased, but check www.wilcoweb.com because tickets aren’t on sale just yet. Wilco is touring to support their new DVD “Ashes of American Flags,” which is due out this Friday, April 18th and has already seen great reviews including one from Aquarium Drunkard claiming “Ashes,” contains much better material then the highly acclaimed live record, “Kicking Television.” Wilco in its sextet form of the last several tours complete with Nels Cline, Pat Sansone, and Mikael Jorgensen can handle any size venue and will surely blow the doors off of this intimate venue of only 1850 seats.
