Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy and his sons Spencer Tweedy and Sammy Tweedy streamed an episode of The Tweedy Show while in a car traveling from Chicago to New York. The mobile episode featured performances of Dirty Projectors, Pavement, Cate Le Bon and Joanna Newsom covers, among other songs.

The trio was en route to retrieve Sammy’s belongings from his college dorm room after leaving in the spring due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Spencer drove while Sammy sat shotgun and Jeff played acoustic guitar from the backseat. Usual host, Jeff’s wife and Spencer and Sammy’s mother Susie Tweedy, did not appear on the episode and instead was one of the clients watching from home.

Sammy sang covers of “Swing Lo Magellan” by Dirty Projectors, “Range Life” by Pavement, “Are You With Me Now?” by Le Bon and “This Side Of Blue” by Joanna Newsom. Sammy also sang “Frank Mills” from the musical Hair and the Jewish traditional “Mi Shebeirach.”

Jeff was on lead vocals for his solo original “Evergreen,” as well as Wilco’s “Passenger Side” and “White Wooden Cross.” The usual show-closing “Reincarnation” by Roger Miller sent the family Tweedy rolling along down the highway.
