Wilco Recording New Album

Chicago rockers Wilco have been recording demos for the follow-up to their 2006 hit Sky Blue Sky. The band will start rerecording demos in their Chicago loft (made famous in the critically acclaimed documentary I am Trying to Break Your Heart) this month. The band will be playing in Rochester on Dec 6th. I highly suggest going to check them out, they are one of the best live bands around.
