Voices Escape Singing Sad Sad Songs

Wilco is hitting the road early next year, kicking off with an "unprecedented 5 night stand" at the Riv in Chicago. Sent to their email list:

Over these 5 nights the band will endeavor to perform every song in their now extensive ouvre (or is that canon)? This includes all the studio recordings and their contributions to the Mermaid Avenue records. Plus, who knows what else? To further clarify, the plan is NOT to do the material sequentially or chronologically. Rather, they're just going to attempt to cover it all over the 5 shows. It'll be a real blast, we're certain.
A real blast, indeed. If the idea of taking a road trip to Chicago in mid-February sounds awful, Wilco is coming back to the Val-Air Ballroom in Des Moines on March 9. Pre-sale is going on now here. The public sale begins Friday via Ticketbastard.
