It’ll be a momentus occasion for Redding when Jefferson Public Radio and the Cascade Theatre present cult favorite indie-rock band Wilco in their first performance at the historic Cascade Theatre at 7:30pm Wednesday, September 26th, 2012.
Wilco rose from the ashes of one of the most respected alt-country groups of the 1990s, Uncle Tupelo, to emerge as a celebrated band in their own right. Led by frontman Jeff Tweedy, Wilco has evolved from a country-rock band into an eclectic indie-rock collective that touches on many eras and genres in their music: ‘70s rock, country, Beach Boys-style pop, noise-rock and folk. With an incredible array of distinct musical genres that blend together to form a sound that has been described as daring, allusive and funky, Wilco has attracted a fan base which embraces the band’s musical adventurism.
Wilco’s performance offers a special opportunity to experience the band’s first appearance in Redding in the beautifully intimate setting of Redding’s lovingly restored historic Cascade Theatre. From the wistfully sad “Jesus, Etc” to the gorgeous “You and I”, Wilco is sure to provide a night of music to remember forever.
Tickets range from $42 - $62, and are available at the Cascade Theatre Box Office at 1733 Market Street, by phone at (530) 243-8877 or directly through the Cascade Theatre website at www.cascadetheatre.org.
