Jeff Tweedy @ the Civic Opera House, December 2011 (more by Matt Ziegler)

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy has announced that he'll be playing his annual pair of shows at the Vic Theatre on March 13 & 14 this year. Tickets for both of the youth scholarship fundraising events go on sale this Friday (2/01) at noon CST.

As discussed, Tweedy is currently working with Mavis Staples on a follow-up to their 2010 Grammy-winning collaboration, You Are Not Alone. The LP is due out sometime this year via Anti-. In December, the pair teamed up with Sean Lennon to perform the John Lennon // Yoko Ono tune "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" on The Colbert Report. Check out that clip, and a few others, below...
