PICK OF THE WEEK: Wilco – Saturday and Sunday, September 1 & 2, The Fillmore, Denver, CO

Why You Should Go: Wilco has always been a band that shines in the live setting. Their last visit to Colorado was under the stars at Red Rocks more than two years ago and this time they bring their captivating live show to The Fillmore for two nights that are sure to be packed.

With their latest release Sky Blue Sky, Wilco has reigned things in a bit for a more stripped down folky sort of sound. The resulting songs that make up the album are very accessible and Jeff Tweedy’s reedy voice is in fine form as is the rest of the band.

As the band that stands atop the hoardes of Alt-Country groups in the US today, Wilco is living up to the difficult task of delivering in spades on every offering they release. There is a lot expected of this band and Tweedy and company have gelled into a unit that is capable of producing some of the most beautiful music out there today.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
