Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy to play Fort Laud­erdale in March

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - MUSIC - By Ben Cran­dell

Wilco front­man Jeff Tweedy will per­form at Parker Play­house in Fort Laud­erdale March 15 on a tour sup­port­ing his new solo al­bum, “Warm,” and a crit­i­cally lauded mem­oir.

Tick­ets will cost $45 and $55 and are sched­uled to go on sale 7 p.m. Fri­day, Nov. 30, at Tick­et­mas­ter.com. A pre­sale starts at 7 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Nov. 28, with the pass­word WARM.

Acous­tic gui­tar hero and long­time Tweedy col­lab­o­ra­tor Jeff Elk­ing­ton will open the show at 7:30 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Park­erPlay­house.com.

“Warm,” set for re­lease on Fri­day, Nov. 30, on Tweedy’s dBpm Records, has been pre­ceded by two sin­gles, “Some Birds” and “I Know What It’s Like.” The al­bum in­cludes con­tri­bu­tions from his son, drum­mer Spencer Tweedy, per­cus­sion­ist and com­poser Glenn Kotche and Grammy-win­ning Wilco pro­ducer Tom Schick.

Tweedy re­cently pub­lished the mem­oir “Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back),” which traces the arc of his life on and off the stage. It is sub­ti­tled “A Mem­oir of Record­ing and Dis­cord­ing With Wilco Etc.”

Bob Boilen of NPR’s “All Songs Con­sid­ered” found in Tweedy’s com­pi­la­tion of “in­se­cu­ri­ties, drug de­pen­den­cies and thought­ful re­flec­tions” a book that is “in­cred­i­bly open­hearted and hon­est.”

Paste mag­a­zine calls it “a dry-wit­ted ex­am­i­na­tion of Tweedy’s per­sonal life and ca­reer so en­joy­able even the most ca­sual of fans will be hooked.”
