The Autumn Defense
Two Wilco alums in their dazzling side project
What may have started out as a creative side project for bassist John Stirratt and Patrick Sansone has since blossomed into a spectacular venture in unassuming guitar rock. Although these jingles are coming straight from two Wilco members, if you’re looking to place them, think low-key (Elliot Smith) rather than buoyant (Beach Boys). They’re fresh from releasing their fifth LP, and this time they’ve swapped arena-sized stadiums for the relaxed vibe of the Highline Ballroom. T. Hardy Morris will join. General admission. This event is all ages. Seating in the venue is first come, first served. There is a full dinner menu available for extra cost and a $10 minimum per person for all tables.
"Where Wilco sprawls, The Autumn Defense drills down to a sweetly straightforward style of classic pop and rock."
