Posted By on Tue, Mar 17, 2015 at 2:45 PM


Hey there, Tweedy fans. We've got a pair of tickets to see the father/son duo next week and we want you to have them. The show is Wednesday, March 25 at the Rialto.

You've got until the end of the day Thursday to enter—we'll contact the winner in the morning on Friday. If you're not lucky enough to win, tickets range from $27-$41. Enter here!

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

As the founding member and leader of the American rock band Wilco, and before that the co-founder of the alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy is one of contemporary music's most accomplished songwriters, musicians and performers. Since starting Wilco in 1994, Tweedy ha written original songs for eight Wilco albums and collaborated with folk singer Billy Bragg to bring musical life to three albums—full of Woody Guthrie-penned lyrics in the Mermaid Avenue series.

His latest project is Tweedy, a musical collaboration with his 18-year-old son and drummer Spencer Tweedy. The father/son duo's debut album is called Sukierae and features 20 songs written by Jeff Tweedy. With Spencer on drums, Jeff handles his usual guitars and vocals, a well as bass and keyboards. Musician Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Minus Five, The Baseball Project) lends additional keyboards and backing vocals on Sukierae come courtesy of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the Brooklyn band Lucius.
