Wilco Confirmed!

Famous last words, right? Indeed, if Modest Mouse has taught us anything, it's that announcements of hugely awesome flannel shirt≠≠≠-related (we hereby declare a moratorium on the phrase "indie") bands playing shows at Les Schwab Amphitheater are best taken with a grain of salt.


 In this case, though, we're really, really hoping that nothing - Jeff Tweedy's well-documented self-medication habits included - will stop Wilco from dropping off the Bend Summer Concerts lineup. For the uninitiated, the Chicago-based legend of an alt-country band has been kicking major arse since 1994, and their 2007 album, Sky Blue Sky, proves that they're far from the end of their arse-kicking career. Four months is a long time to keep your fingers crossed, but it should be worth it.

 
Saturday, August 23. Les Schwab Amphitheater.

The first exhibit in evidence: Reports that Thornton was once a psychiatric patient in the Bellevue mental hospital, New York, New York. Thornton denies the hospitalization, which reportedly took place shortly before the 1985 debut of his former rap group, Ultramagnetic MCs. He attempted to brush off the widespread reports of the event as mere products of the music industry rumor mill in a recent phone interview with the Source Weekly:

  • Ye-eah! Fake Metallica tears up the pub

    just like the real thing, except in a much smaller stadium.In the spirit of fearlessly exploring the oft-scary phenomenon of tribute bands, Sound Check moseyed over to the Reed Pub Company last Saturday night to catch a face full of Motorbreath. Around a hundred souls were holding down the wee pub's peanut shell-sprinkled floor and spilling out into the smokers' patio outside when we showed up. Once the openers were done, the smoke machines had the joint socked in and the audience had had their fill of obnoxious Nickelback hits on the sound system, the main event started at darn near the stroke of midnight.
