Via Chicago:  Wilco Happenings...
  • MONDAY, MAY 14, 2007

While I know it is only May, the Baeble Blog can personally declare 2007 to be a real humdinger of a year…at least musically speaking. From The Shins popping the cork on the New Year back in January, to Feist’s latest a few weeks back, so far, the year that has been (Arcade Fire, Andrew Bird, Bloc Party, Bright Eyes, Menomena, Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith), has been undeniably rewarding.

And yet, for all the high profile releases that have found their way to our ears this year, we’ve had May 15th circled in thick red sharpie since the very beginning. Starting tomorrow, Wilco’s celebrated sixth studio release, Sky Blue Sky (Nonesuch), will be precisely propped up on record shelves the world over. To celebrate, the band is feeling festive; hosting a variety of soirees that should have even the most devoted of Wilco fans in a bit of a tizzy.

Old news now, but definitely worth throwing out there… Sky Blue Sky is currently streaming in its’ entirety over at the band’s webpage. Can’t wait until tomorrow? Hear the record today, HERE.

Last Saturday the band set up camp with Garrison Keeler on the shores of Lake Wobegon…or Minneapolis’ State Theater…for a taping of A Prairie Home Companion. Chatting with Keeler along the way, the band played through five songs for the NPR crowd. If you didn’t find yourself gathered ‘round the radio last weekend, you can hear the performance HERE.

In addition to releasing Sky Blue Sky, the band will also mark Tuesday May 15th with an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. Check your local listings…

Sunday May 20th, and Monday May 21st, the band will be webcasting their shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Sunday’s webcast will be available exclusively through a link on the Sky Blue Sky CD. Fans can see Monday’s by opening up the Wilco “Roadcase”.
