Nels will be playing with Julian Lage at the Stone in New York tonight! 

This might have gotten lost amid announcements of Wilco’s greatest hits album and rarities box set (both pretty light on Nels-era songs, really) and the band’s six-night Chicago residency in December.

Nels and Julian’s album Room will be out next month from Mack Avenue Records.

The Complete Last Waltz - Tickets - The Capitol Theatre - Port Chester, NY - November 26th, 2014

Nels will once again participate in a recreation of the Band’s iconic The Last Waltz, this time at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on November 26.

Look for Nels to pop up at the theatre a few weeks earlier, as well. In addition to Wilco’s three sold-out shows there at the end of this month, it was announced a few days ago that he’ll also be joining Phil Lesh and Friends on November 1.

Last time Nels played with Phil, he joined the group for the second set only and wasn’t featured as prominently as a Nels fan would hope for. Because of that, I only recommend shelling out for the webcast if you’re a die-hard Phil/Dead fan. If you tune in for Nels alone, you’ll be disappointed.

From the Jeff Tweedy Twitter feed, with this caption: “Look who just showed up backstage at @BAM_Brooklyn http://bam.org/tweedylive  #tweedylive @nelscline”
I was supposed to have been in New York myself last night, but instead I was home sick, crashed on the couch and watching the webcast of the Tweedy show. Nels came out for the final song of the Tweedy show at BAM last night, joining the band for “California Stars.” I wasn’t thrilled about the song choice (I think that one could stand to be shelved for awhile), but Nels added a lot to the song and got a lot of cheers from the crowd.
Next up for Nels is a run of shows on the west coast with Cibo Matto.

I have a feeling Mark Kozelek would take issue with this recommendation I just got from Spotify. I found it to be hilarious, though!

Eyebone September 22nd, 2014 | (le) poisson rouge

Eyebone, Nels’ trio with drummer Jim Black and pianist Teddy Klausner, will play at Le Poisson Rouge in New York tomorrow night at 10:30. Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door.

Of course I’ll be in New York for another show (at LPR, no less) on Tuesday. So close! I can’t complain too much, though, since I’ll be seeing Nels a few more times later in the fall.

Nels and Julian Lage will hit the road for a short tour in November to mark the release of their album Room, due out November 25 from Mack Avenue Records. Not too many shows this time around, but I’m sure there will be at least a few more when they can fit them in their schedules.

Nels Cline & Julian Lage - SubCulture

Nels and Julian Lage will play at SubCulture in the West Village on November 25 (two days before Thanksgiving). Doors are at 8 and the show is at 9. Buy tickets in advance and save $5! This will no doubt be an album release party, since the show falls on the release date for their first album, Room, on Mack Avenue Records (the same label that released the Singers’ album earlier this year).

I bet if you ask nicely enough, Nels will make a hand turkey drawing for you after the show.
