NEW DAYS for WILCO - We are but one month away from a new music experience here in New England - the Solid Sound Music Festival, the brainchild of America's Wilco. It's an interesting proposition - a living museum of sound and sight displays at North Adams, Massachusetts' Mass MOCA (see the video below) curated by Wilco and their friends. Staking out in this new endeavor represents Jeff Tweedy and the band's own personal and professional aesthetic these days. Recently Wilco opted to end their major record deal and have decided to create their own music label.

NEW SOUNDS - And word came late this Spring that Tweedy penned songs for the new Mavis Staples (tore the roof off the Newport Folk Festival last summer) album - producing the record as well. Staples will be at Solid Sound as well. These are exciting times. And, I daresay that August 13 - 15 may be even more exciting. I hope you know that we will certainly be there...
