Easthampton, — September 1, 2015 — Jeff Tweedy, founder of the acclaimed Chicago rock band Wilco, chats live with fans this evening at 6 pm CT via a reddit AMA. Approximately 30 minutes into the AMA, at 6:30 pm CT, Tweedy will be joined by Wilco bandmate, guitarist Nels Cline. The two will discuss Wilco’s just released 9th studio album StarWars, among other things, during the 90-minute forum.
Star Wars was surprise-released by Wilco’s dBpm Records on July 16 and offered as a free download for four weeks. RollingStone calls it Wilco’s best album in a decade and the LondonIndependent said, “Even by Wilco’s adventurous standards, StarWars is possibly the most unusual, exploratory work of the band’s existence.” The album is available now on CD, and the vinyl will release worldwide October 13.
