Their latest release is "Wilco (The Album)," a series of mostly sunny songs that find the band taking a more straight-ahead musical trajectory after years of sonic explorations. This will be Wilco's first Ann Arbor appearance since 2004, though they performed at the Royal Oak Music Theatre earlier this month (and frontman Jeff Tweedy went solo to headline at this year's Ann Arbor Folk Festival).
