Wilco lend helping hand to Duluth floods victims

Tip of the hat to Wilco for joining the cause to help those in need following the massive flooding in Duluth last week. We've all seen the pictures of the cars underwater, the ripped up roads, and the water-logged homes. With the Chicago band playing a show at Bayfront Festival Park on Sunday, and at May Civic Center Auditorium in Rochester on Monday, the guys have hatched a plan to raise funds for the many in need.
Two posters created by Minneapolis-based Florafauna will be on sale at these shows. Each costs $30, and the proceeds will be donated to Red Cross' relief fund for flooding in the Duluth area.
The news comes not long after Trampled by Turtles announced they are joining the Twin Ports Bridge Festival, which takes place the following weekend at Bayfront Festival Park. All artists on the bill for Sunday, July 8, are donating to a United Way fund for long term flood relief.
Here is the poster design for Rochester:
Wilco. With Blitzen Trapper. 6 p.m. Sunday, July 1 at Bayfront Festival Park, Duluth and 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 2 at Mayo Civic Center Auditorium, Rochester.
