Lollapalooza, Wilco's Solid Sound and more...

Posted 09/13/10

Mavis Staples (w/ RHB along for the ride) played Lollapalooza August 6, 2010 in Chicago. Many reviews of the show said Mavis stole the show from headliner Lady Gaga...well, duh! Jeff Tweedy also sat in on a couple of songs with his old Gibson acoustic, which was extra fun as both are Chicagoan's. There are clips galore on youTube...for enthusiasts only!

Wilco's Solid Sound festival was help in rural Massachusetts August 14, 2010 at MassMOCA. Featuring many Wilco side projects and unique spin offs, plus fun activities for both artie's and families, the Saturday night program included a Mavis Staples set prior to Wilco's epic closing set. Good times once again as Tweedy sat in on a beat up old Martin acoustic for a heartfelt version of his own "You Are Not Alone" title track for Mavis' new CD as well as a smokin' version of CCR's "Wrote a Song For Everyone".

Look for Mavis (and RHB) in your town this fall and next winter, see Tour Dates section...
