Wilco had a busy weekend. They played the annual Farm Aid concert, which our colleagues at the Riverfront Times described as "loose and raw - more like the tightest jam session you'll ever see than a well-orchestrated gig."
In addition, Wilco continued the chain of higher-quality musical guests on A Prairie Home Companion the past few weeks, fitting in nicely this weekend alongside the other musical guest Patty Loveless, as well as the usual suspects like Guy Noir and Lives of the Cowboys.
If you don't have a ticket to tonight's show with Liam Finn at the Crossroads, you're pretty much screwed, as it's sold out. Best of luck getting in, as their fanbase is rabid, and unlikely to part with any tickets. There aren't even any on StubHub. You can stream the Prairie Home Companion show here as a consolation prize.
