Between being frontman of Wilco and frontdad of Tweedy — not to mention all his erstwhile stints with Uncle Tupelo, Loose Fur, and Golden Smog — Jeff Tweedy is and always has been A MAN IN BANDS. Even that time he guest starred in Parks and Recreation: in a band! Don’t get it confused though, oh no. While he has recorded some real classics as a member of a band, Jeff Tweedy can do band all by himself.
Yes, commonly referred to as “performing solo,” Jeff Tweedy (plus or minus a cowboy hat or two) will be doing the whole-band-by-himself thing on tour this fall.
Last year, Tweedy released his first solo album Together At Last, featuring 11 re-worked “intimate recordings” of classic Wilco songs and rarities from his Loose Fur and Golden Smog side projects. Presumably, those re-worked songs will feature heavily in sets as Tweedy makes stops across the Midwest, west coast, and British Columbia (the “Canadian southwest,” as it were.) If you’re really itching to hear a solo Jeff Tweedy perform “Kamera” or something however, you can actually request specific songs on Wilco’s website. Who ever said Jeff Tweedy isn’t a man of the people? (Probably no one, but hey, it’s a good line to end a paragraph with.)
Check out all of Jeff Tweedy’s upcoming solo dates (he’s playing assorted shows, both foreign and domestic, this summer as well) down below. Tweedy’s solo record Together At Last is out now via dBpm Records and can be acquired here. The episode of Parks and Recreation Jeff Tweedy is in is “Moving Up” from season six. It’s very good!
