I've got a whole city to hold down

What's Chicagomuzik without Wilco?

Popdork reports today that Wilco has shelved the live DVD taped over four nights at the Vic last May. According to a press release from the band, however, the accompanying two-disc concert album Kicking Television: Live In Chicago is scheduled for a Nov. 1 release. Tracklist: Disc One - "Misunderstood," "Company In My Back," "The Late Greats," "Hell Is Chrome," "Handshake Drugs," "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart," "Shot in the Arm," "At Least That's What You Said," "Wishful Thinking," "Jesus, Etc.," "I'm The Man Who Loves You," "Kicking Television." Disc Two - "Via Chicago," "Hummingbird," "Muzzle of Bees," "One by One," "Airline to Heaven," "Radio Cure," "Ashes of American Flags," "Heavy Metal Drummer," "Poor Places," "Spiders (Kidsmoke)," "Comment" (Charles Wright).

In other news the Mini-Tweedies, Spencer and Sam, are appearing in a national TV ad campaign for Quaker Oats, and Daddy T has slated a gang of solo dates commencing the first week of November. There's no Chicago engagement scheduled at this point, but we're wondering if a pre-tour Abbey Pub gig might not be possible. The club's calendar is now blank on Nov. 2 and 3. (Just to tie it all together, the Quaker Oats ad was filmed at the Abbey.)
