Wilco shines in San Jose

People who complain about how much music sucks today need look no further than Wilco to have their arguments squashed. While other bands have shot to superstardom and either flamed out or comfortably nestled in mediocrity, the Chicago-based band has steadily chugged along, sneakily becoming one of the most important American rock bands around. Despite that, the members of Wilco still maintain a relatively low profile.

A few words with Wilco

This week, Intermission sat down with Glenn Kotche, the drummer for the alternative rock band Wilco. Promoting their recently released album “The Whole Love”, Wilco is bringing their tour to the Bay Area with four sold-out performances in San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland and Davis over the next week. Trained in classical percussion, Kotche has played with Wilco for more than 10 years and has also released several solo works. He talked to us about the new album, touring in the Bay Area and future performances at Stanford.
