Forecastle Festival 2012 preview: Wilco

Iconic alt rock band Wilco, who have been making music together for nearly two decades now, will be playing the Mast Stage at the Forecastle Festival this Sunday, July 15, at 9:30 p.m.

Hailing from Chicago and headed full-time by the legendary Jeff Tweedy, Wilco grew out of the ashes of the alternative country band Uncle Tupelo and has since navigated through a variety of rock styles, as well as an oft-changing line-up. They were catapulted to stardom by the success of their fourth and fifth albums, Yankee Foxtrot Hotel and A Ghost is Born, and continue to grow and evolve, with the help of an eternally loyal fan base.

About Karen Ellestad
When I was seven and my brother was eight, we both wrote to 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' for a free t-shirt. Two weeks later his arrived in the mail, signed by Carmen Sandiego herself, accompanied by an autographed picture of the cast, an official membership to the 'Gumshoe Club,' and a Rockapella casette tape. I got a postcard.
