On tour, Tweedy performs songs from their album Sukierae (the nickname of Jeff’s wife and Spencer’s mother Sue Miller), which is comprised of 20 tracks reflecting life’s ups and downs and certain to tug at some heart strings. Tucsonans can catch them in concert as The Rialto Theatre presents Tweedy with The Minus 5 at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25. This Ticket Tuesday, the generous people at The Rialto provided us with a pair of passes to give to one of you!


From The Rialto Theatre website: 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 has 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.
