If you're a fan of Wilco, the great Chicago-based rock band that's helped define the alt-country movement for the past two decades, then you should head out to North Adams this weekend.

That's where some 10,000 music fans will be — at the Solid Sound festival at Mass MoCA.

Wilco is the driving force behind the festival, and the band will play two sets, one acoustic and one electric. There will also be a bunch of other bands as well as comedians.

Guest

Jeff Tweedy, songwriter, musician and record producer best known as the leader of band Wilco. He also leads the bands Tweedy, Golden Smog, Loose Fur and Uncle Tupelo. He tweets @JeffTweedy.
