Published Oct 28, 2014Alt-country veterans Wilco are gearing up to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a new box set, best-of and some celebratory live dates. To help get the word out, they stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The group performed their 2003 track "A Magazine Called Sunset," then stuck around to offer up a web exclusive performance of the 2002 song "Cars Can't Escape." If nothing else, the band proved just how timeless their catalogue can be.
Watch Wilco perform on Fallon below. As a bonus, there's also footage of the band's Jeff Tweedy playing charades with Fallon, Ewan McGregor and Charles Barkley.
Wilco's Alpha Mike Foxtrot box set and What's Your 20? best-of will arrive on November 17 via Nonesuch.
Along with the new releases, Wilco will hold what's being called the Wilco Winterlude, a six-night residency at their hometown of Chicago's Riviera Theatre. Each night will feature a different setlist focusing on songs from different eras of the band's career.
