Jeff Tweedy - Let's Go (So We Can Get Back)

Saturday, November 17, 7pm

Jeff Tweedy, Let's Go (So We Can Get Back)Left Bank Books welcomes songwriter, performer, and Wilco founding member Jeff Tweedy, who will discuss his new book, Let's Go (So We Can Get Back): A Memoir of Recording and Discording with Wilco, Etc., with St. Louis Public Radio host Mike Schrand!

Few bands have inspired as much devotion as the Chicago rock band Wilco, and it’s thanks, in large part, to the band’s singer, songwriter, and guiding light: Jeff Tweedy. But while his songs and music have been endlessly discussed and analyzed, Jeff has rarely talked so directly about himself, his life, and his artistic process. Until now. In his long-awaited memoir, Jeff will tell stories about his childhood in Belleville, Illinois; the St. Louis record store, rock clubs, and live-music circuit that sparked his songwriting and performing career; and the Chicago scene that brought it all together. He’ll also talk in-depth about his collaborators in Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, and more.

"One of the most daring songwriters of his generation . . . [Wilco is] vital, adventurous…breaking new stylistic ground with each ambitious and creatively restless album.”
