Tweedy, the father-son duo of Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his drummer Spencer Tweedy, resumes US touring in March in support of Sukierae, the duo’s debut release (dBpm Records). The tour features a full band lineup and opens with two shows at The Vic in the Tweedys’ hometown of Chicago, followed by concerts in Minneapolis, Bozeman, Missoula, Seattle, Portland, Santa Cruz, San Diego, Tucson, Santa Fe and Denver. Tweedy also plays two shows at Los Angeles’ Ace Hotel and two shows at The Fillmore in San Francisco.
Also, on Feb. 17 dBpm/ANTI- Records will release Don’t Lose This, an album of previously unreleased music by the late singer and guitarist Pops Staples. Featuring Pops on guitar with vocals by Pops and the famed Staple Singers of Mavis, Cleotha and Yvonne, Don’t Lose This presents 10 songs originally recorded and produced by Pops and Mavis in 1999 but left unfinished at the time of his death in 2000. Now complete, the album features new production by Jeff Tweedy, as well as new bass and guitar by Jeff Tweedy and new drums by Spencer Tweedy.
Tweedy concerts will be loosely staged in at least two parts: a full band set including songs from Sukierae, performed by Jeff and Spencer with Jim Elkington on guitar, Darin Grey on bass and Liam Cunningham on keyboards and guitar. Jeff Tweedy also performs songs from his Wilco/Uncle Tupelo catalog solo acoustic.
