Watch Wilco Perform Two Songs On ‘Fallon’ + Jeff Tweedy Play Charades
Even though he’s been keeping busy with his latest solo endeavor, 'Sukierae' -- including an appearance on 'Austin City Limits' over the weekend -- Jeff Tweedy found some time to get together with Wilco last night (Oct. 27) to play a couple of songs on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.' Watch their pristine performance of ‘A Magazine Called Sunset’ in the video above.
‘A Magazine Called Sunset’ may not be instantly recognizable to most fans; it’s the fourth track from their 2003 EP, ‘More Like the Moon,’ which was originally included as a bonus disc with ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’ in Australia. It will be featured on their upcoming rarities box set, ‘Alpha Mike Foxtrot.’
In addition to that tune, Fallon convinced them to stick around for an extra song, exclusively for the show’s web audience. Another track from ‘Alpha Mike Foxtrot,’ Tweedy and company performed ‘Cars Can’t Escape’ -- a song from the ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’ days that was offered as a free ‘Roadcase’ download on Wilco’s official website.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Fallon brought Tweedy and Charles Barkley out to help him with a game of charades with Ewan McGregor. We really don’t have much else to say than that. Just watch:
Wilco have a handful of dates scheduled through October as well as early December, including three sold-out gigs at Port Chester, N.Y.’s iconic venue, the Capitol Theatre. Get their full tour itinerary here.
