Wilco plays Berkeley’s Greek Theatre: Win free tickets

Update, Friday, 12:16pm: Congratulations to Ryan Kerian, Jan Newberry and David Weisz who each won a pair of tickets on Berkeleyside to see Wilco play at Berkeley’s Greek Theatre tonight! Enjoy the show guys!

Original story: Wilco is coming to the Greek this weekend — Friday Sept. 21 and Saturday Sept. 22 at 7:30pm — and Berkeleyside has three pairs of tickets to give away to our readers for Friday’s show!

Apart from being a damn fine alternative rock band, Wilco is a classy operation with a list as long as a very long arm of causes it supports — from the American Red Cross, to the Woody Guthrie Foundation. They’re also making a point on their current tour of encouraging their fans to register to vote in the upcoming elections.

All you need to do is answer the three trivia questions below and email them to tips@berkeleyside.com before tomorrow, Thursday Sept. 20, at 5:00pm. Include your full name, and, if you’re one of the first three to come in with all three correct answers, you’re set for a great night out in one of the country’s most beautiful outdoor music venues. 

Here we go:


1. Which popular children’s show was made into a movie in 2004 and featured music from Wilco along with The Flaming Lips and The Shins?

2. Which two members of Wilco have twin siblings?

3. Now commonly referred to as the “Wilco Buildings” in Chicago, what is the actual title of the buildings in the album artwork of “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”?

Good luck!
