Wilco Brought Out Jenny Lewis and Ben Gibbard to Play ‘California Stars’
Plus Bill Frisell and Scott McCaughey too for the Washington show
Wilco only just released their new album Star Wars — they’ve been playing it in full at festival appearances, too — and last night, the 20-year-old band brought Jenny Lewis and Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard onstage in Redmond, Washington for a performance of Woody Guthrie’s “California Stars.” It was, of course, an incredible version of the already pristine track. Both Gibbard and Lewis ceded the stage mostly to Jeff Tweedy, hopping in on well-layered harmonies and some tambourine jangling along the way. Keep an eye out for Bill Frisell and Scott McCaughey too: What a stacked show.
