In the late '80s, three fellas outta Illinois — Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy, and Mike Heidorn — formed the influential alt-country band Uncle Tupelo. When the band broke up in 1994, Farrar went on to form Son Volt, while Tweedy created Wilco. Tonight, Thursday, February 26th, all those branches of the roots rock family tree will be brought together at the Tractor Tavern as local musicians pay tribute to all three of those bands.

Tonight's line-up includes:

  • Barb Hunter
  • Cooper Smith
  • In Cahoots
  • The Crying Shame
  • Massy Ferguson
  • Red Jacket Mine
  • The Ganges River Band
  • Long Dark Moon
  • Fredd Luongo (The Swearengens)
  • Inly
  • Casey Ruff
  • The Riveters
  • Jackrabbit
  • Matthew Harvey
  • Gabriel Mintz

KEXP's own DJ Don Slack of Swingin' Doors will host, and proceeds benefit MusiCares which provides a safety net for music people in times in need. Tickets for this 21+ show are going fast, so get yours before it sells out.
