Wilco is a little like baseball—you probably know the rules, but the diehard fans see skill and nuance that are impossible to convey to the casual crowd. Jeff Tweedy and company have become a full-blown American institution, and their fans are tracking stats, keeping up with the band on a micro level. Now that the music landscape is even more filled with scores of tiny genres and outsized attitudes, it's comforting that Wilco exists, continuing to make music that feels like it's been around forever and will find its audience long after current trends burn out. Wilco will doubtlessly keep playing for their fans, and they won't even ask for a stadium to do it in. With Nick Lowe. (Photo by Autumn de Wilde)
