Wilco, Nick Lowe 

When: Tue., Sept. 27, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $30-40

In 2002, Wilco released Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, a synthesis of bedrock songwriting and aggressive experimentation that made the album one of the last decade's most daring. Wilco spent the bulk of the next decade, though, trying to figure out exactly how to favor the more song-oriented aspect of its personality while not sounding too much like a simple style-over-substance '70s rock band. They occasionally succeeded and often failed; their latest, The Whole Love, might actually be their best attempt yet. Always spirited, sometimes playful and sometimes deadly serious, The Whole Love finds Wilco again interested in texture and evolution but still playing with the sort of chutzpah of a proper rock 'n' roll band. If you've written Wilco off, this one should make you re-listen. With Nick Lowe. —Grayson Currin
