Mark your calendar - May 15th
Following their 2004 'A Ghost is Born' album, Wilco will be releasing 'Sky Blue Sky' this coming spring.
A press release came my way last week about it...and in the body of the email, a very interesting blog worth checking if you are a music geek like me. But for now, more about Wilco.
I am a big fan, but also have to admit that they do a good job keeping fans interested and using social media to the best of its abilities.
- Podcast - if you haven't already, subscribe to their Wilco Podcast on iTunes. If you haven't heard 'The Thanks I Get' which is to be released in May, you can get a preview of Tweedy singing it in an M4A file. Pretty sweet. My feet are still tapping.
- flickr, and more flickr.
- RSS their tour dates and set lists.
- ...you gotta love that their site links to last.fm
- The site has a fair share of links back to its website.
But how can they do a VERY good job?
- Okay, I am being greedy, but I would love a shared blog by all the members of the band.
- Thay have some great concert tshirts and posters - but it would be nice to get their fans involved from different cities - particularily cities where they won't be travelling.
