Loosely inspired by nalafej  thread about a free Nels Cline concert - a thread for members of Wilco concert performances. Nels and Glenn play out quite a bit, as well as the rest, perhaps having their show dates in one thread would be a benefit - who knows.

 

First up, the below. Happen to come across this by accident. A very welcomed new Chicago venue, Constellation, is opening this month. The wife and I had plans to see Son Volt on the 7th - I think Glen may win over the wife, though - (No offense Jay).

Parker / Longberg-Holm / Kotche / Reed Fri, June 7, 2013 Doors: 8:30 pm / Show: 9:30 pm $10.00 - $12.00

 

 

Might as well post the shows already mentioned in nalafej's thread:

Obviously this thread is not meant to be a Chicago only thread, but a who and where are they playing thread.

I plan to make the Roscoe Mitchell show in a couple weeks at this new club.  I had not seen the Kotche, etc. date until you just posted it, but I will definitely get some tix for that. This is a great new addition to the venues for experimental type music.  I have not yet been but will report back when I do. The old venue when it was a theater got mixed reviews. 

 

Glenn had not been playing out much in the past couple years. It is good to see him back out in public doing this kind of show.  Maybe he has more time now that the kids are a bit older and maybe because Wilco's schedule is less intense. 

 

Places and gigs like this make Chicago a great place for folks to check other times than regular Wilco or Jeff shows.

Not sure where to post this so I'll throw it in here. Right now on NPR's Fresh Air they are broadcasting an interview with Jherek Bischoff, who I haven't heard of but who has apparently collaborated with Nels. Terry Gross mentioned Nels in the intro.

Considering there are shows there already I guess things are pretty far along, but won't know for a couple weeks when I get in there.  This space has just gobs of potential.

it consists of a few different spaces within the building.  links hall is also moving to the space as well.  i think there are a total of three stages/spaces.  i could be wrong though.  you going to van dyke parks lou?

Made it to the Cline/Parker show tonight - nice evening. Went with the family so I wasn't listening too, too closely, but it sounded good.

 

Also not at all familiar with Paul Bley and John Gilmore’s album The Turning Point, so I have no reference point on how performance compared to the record (this is probably the best review ever written :lol )

 

At one point Nels did play a nice looking Rickenbacker and while playing one of his Jazzmasters he broke a string, which he replaced while Frank took a drum solo.

Nels will be giving the keynote address at Music University, presented by the Des Moines Music Coalition, on October 19 at Drake University's Harmon Fine Arts Center. Tickets for the whole day of events are only $20 (less if you're a musician or a student), which is a real bargain.

 

He'll be playing in New York with Jenny Scheinman's Mischief and Mayhem September 16 in New York, then will be hitting the road for a string of shows on the west coast with Ben Goldberg's Unfold Ordinary Mind. Here's the full list of those shows, from his website:

You dragging your kids to this? Should be fun. I hear Justin Roberts is really good (and has Gerald Dowd as his drummer.)

 

LouieB

 

Yep.

 

We seen Justin Roberts about 5 or so times over the last 3 years - always a fun show. Look forward to the rest of the line up, too.

All for a good cause, to boot.

Now that my kids are grown I don't do kids shows anymore. Would like to see him sometime though.

 

Bucky Halker is a bit of a blowhard Guthrie cover guy. Nora is always great. Its funny that John is listed as a member of Autumn Defense rather than the much more famous Wilco though.

I saw him a few years back. He does put on a good show!

Yikes. Yeah, how would they get everyone in the same place to work on a new album? Unless the bulk of the recording is already done.
