Wilco World in Durham

The Chicago six-piece Wilco will perform a concert we're hoping they call Wilco (The Show) Saturday, March 27, at 8 p.m., at Durham Performing Arts Center. The $35 tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 8, at 10 a.m. The show, Wilco's first performance in the Triangle since a stop at the much-larger Koka Booth Amphitheatre in 2008, is not only a major booking score for the starting-to-look-a-lot-less-like-Branson DPAC, but it also represents a promising level of teamwork between regional concert promoters: Cat's Cradle is co-presenting the show.

"With the help of legendary club promoter Frank Heath of Cat’s Cradle, Wilco is coming to the intimate and acoustically great setting of DPAC," said DPAC GM Bob Klaus in a press release. "We’re excited to host this very special American band and again have the chance for audiences to discover what makes DPAC one of the best places for concerts in America."

Before you go shooting your Wilcowad, though, keep in mind that the second installment of Knoxville's excellent Big Ears Festival brings Joanna Newsom, Terry Riley, Andrew W.K., DJ/rupture, The Ex and (gross) Vampire Weekend to the state to the west the same weekend. Hmm: Being there, or here? And with that unnecessary pun, goodbye.
