Wilco plays Lowell 7/11 - Win Tickets

DO NOT MISS: Saturday 7/11/09
SCENE: LeLacheur Park - Lowell, MA

Mark my words: Wilco's appearance on a local baseball diamond next week in Lowell, MA, could be the Boston-region's show of the year. (Sorry Fenway Park, even the concept of Sir Paul McCartney and MGMT in August does not move me so much as Jeff Tweedy [recent interview] and Wilco on a scorching summer tour!)

Wilco may have their best year in 2009

And, Tweedy's in good company: They will play July 11th with Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band. The fact that these talented players will be standing on baseball soil (the home of Red Sox Minor League Class A ball club The Lowell Spinners.)

There's something exceptional about the prospect of two of my favorite things (great music and baseball) coming together. Considering how good Wilco's new eponymous album is this should be pure magic! Baseball, Rock, and July - Get in on this!
