Wilco to play Pavilion in October
Much more of this, and they might have to start paying city taxes. That's right, Wilco will be playing yet another Charlottesville gig, this time on October 20 at the Charlottesville Pavilion. Counting frontman Jeff Tweedy's January solo appearance at the Paramount Theater, it will be the Chicago-based rockers' third Charlottesville show in two years.
On all three occasions, Charlottesville impressario Coran Capshaw has been responsible for bringing the band to town, whether through his Charlottesville Pavilion (where Wilco opened the 2006 season) or his Starr Hill Presents (which booked Tweedy's solo show), leading to rumors that Red Light Management is preparing to announce Wilco as their newest client. "We love Wilco, and we want their career to grow," says Red Light exec Bruce Flohr, "but there's no truth to that."
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 7 at 10am. They will be available to order at Plan 9 Records locations, by calling 1-877-CPAV-TIX, or through the Pavilion's website.
