We mentioned last week that Wilco is coming to town in June. To help prep us for the show, our friends at the Rialto Theatre are debuting their new movie projector with a Wilco concert film, Ashes of American Flags, on Thursday, April 30.
To get our Wilco fix early and to temporarily subside our anticipation, we will be screening the new film Ashes of American Flags , presenting Wilco live in concert during the 2008 tour. Culled from concerts in five quintessentially American venues - Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, Tipitina's in New Orleans, The Mobile Civic Center in Mobile, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. - the film captures the energy, poignancy and musicality of a Wilco concert and tour. Directed and produced by Brendan Canty and Christoph Green (Sunken Treasure, Burn to Shine).
