One of city's most beloved bands comes home to the Chicago Theatre, staging a four-night stand that marks the group's first appearance at the historic venue. Wilco's tenth studio album, cheekily titled Schmilco, acts as a companion to 2015's Star Wars—a more subdued collection of succinct pop songs that is remincent of frontman Jeff Tweedy's 2014 solo release, Sukierae. If these shows are anything like past hometown appearances, you can expect the band to dig deep into its back catalog (and avoid repeating songs night-to-night), in an effort to placate diehards screaming "Cars Can't Escape" from the balcony.
