In Wilco News...

Just in time for the election, Wilco is appearing on the Colbert Report tonight...should be good.

In other related news, they sent this in a news blurb today. As it would appear they would benefit monetarily from the release, gotta give Tweedy and co. props for this bit of fan consideration.

Also, we have a CONSUMER ALERT. Without consulting us, the DVD company (not WB/Nonesuch) that released "I am trying to break your heart" is about to issue a Blu-Ray Edition which, no surprise, costs considerably more (nearly 2x) than the standard DVD. We're unsure as to the rationale for the release, given that the film was shot in beautiful grainy B&W and has a stereo-only audio track... there is, in our opinion, not much to be gained by spending the extra cash. It's your money... and in this case you should probably hang onto it.

News also mentioned that new material from the band should be out in early '09.

Go see Matt over at You Ain't Picasso for two new songs that Wilco debuted at the recent Bridge Benefit.
