Indie-Rockers Wilco Make First Appearance At The Cascade Theatre Sept 26

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 The 2012-13 Cascade Theatre/Jefferson Public Radio Performance Series is generously sponsored by US Bank.

    Considering they just played two nights at the Greek Theater in Berkeley and have been selling out mid-size venues all over the country, I can't believe how lucky we are to have Wilco coming here—and playing the intimate Cascade at that. I can't wait for Wednesday…

    And if you didn't think it could get any better…for those of you who remember Boston area folk punk singer-songwriter Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers, Richman is actually opening for Wilco!

    Oh how I wish I could afford the tickets. I have been on craigslist all day looking for the discounted tickets. Every 10 minutes. I can't believe we have a current band playing in town. :O oh Wilco, I hope you love the Cascade.

    Wilco put on a great indie rock concert in Redding, California. The band had everything, great music, lighting effects, and kept the audience asking for more. The lyrics to the music were good. I am not familiar with Wilco, but the concert was full of modern technical lighting maybe unfamiliar to Redding audiences, at least to myself. The music was solid and I loved when Jeff Tweety mentioned that this was their first concert in Redding, California. The band played plenty of songs and you really got your money's worth of music. The sound mixing at times was a little out of hand, but that could be this was their first time in Redding at the Cascade Theater. All in all, Wilco put on a great musical performance. Please come back.
