On Thursday, October 30th, Chicago’s own Wilco performed on The Colbert Report. Wilco is just one of the many musical guests that Stephen Colbert has managed to snag in the last several years. Wilco is in good company; a few previous guests include Rush, The Decemberists, Apples in Stereo, R.E.M., Feist, Peter Frampton, The Roots, and Nas. After their appearance on The Colbert Report, Wilco headed to Madison, Wisconsin where they are scheduled to perform a Concert for Change later today. Wilco is also giving away a free copy of their cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” featuring Fleet Foxes. In order to download it, you need to pledge to vote.
