UCSB Arts & Lectures has added a rare solo concert by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy — “one of the most daring songwriters of his generation” (Salon.com) — to its 2013-14 season lineup.
The show will take place at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13 at The Granada Theatre.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday at the ticket offices for UCSB Arts & Lectures and The Granada Theatre.
As the relentlessly creative frontman of acclaimed indie rock band Wilco and co-founder of alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, Tweedy is one of the most spellbinding American singer-songwriters touring today. Join us for a special solo evening with this Grammy-winning troubadour, where he’ll transmit the stripped-to-its-essence songcraft at the heart of Wilco’s wide-screen sound.
Often compared to Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Tweedy is “blowing minds alone, with voice and guitar” (The New York Times), his songs “complex and dangerously catchy, lyrically sophisticated and provocative” (Pitchfork). In this intimate acoustic show, he’ll draw from his 400-plus song catalog, ranging from lo-fi Americana to experimental alt-rock.
Tickets to Tweedy’s concert are $30 to $45 for the general public and $19 for UCSB students with a current student ID. (A Granada facility fee will be added to each ticket price.)
