Jeff Tweedy is “one of the most daring songwriters of his generation” and his band Wilco “vital, adventurous . . . breaking new stylistic ground with each ambitious and creatively restless album.” Salon.com

A member of two of Americana’s most iconic bands, Uncle Tupelo and Wilco, Jeff Tweedy can do pretty much whatever he wants these days and these days, he tours as just Jeff Tweedy. He’s one of the best American songwriters working today and has a discography that is the envy of every other AAA singer-songwriter. He’s headed to the Brown Theatre on June 11 for a solo show, carrying along any number of record albums you can buy to fill any holes in your collection. Tickets start at $40.
