Need a serviced apartment in Glasgow for Wilco’s visit this October?
The Serviced City Pads blog likes to draw attention to exciting live music, and today’s blog will be looking at a show by the alternative rock band Wilco. From Chicago, Illinois, the band are led by the incredibly talented songwriter Jeff Tweedy (Wilco was formed by Tweedy after the break-up of Uncle Tupelo). The band have developed and redefined their sound with each successive album; the biggest commercial breakthroughs were 2002’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” and 2004’s “A Ghost is Born”. The release of “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,” the album that really pushed Wilco to new heights, almost did not happen. The album was finished in 2001, but the band’s label at the time, Reprise Records, were reluctant to release it, feeling that it needed changing. Tweedy and Wilco stuck to their guns, and after months of frustration managed to get the album released by Nonesuch Records. This chapter of their career was the making of the band, and struck a blow for all musicians who have ever been hampered by the machinations of the music business. The story of “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” has a happy ending, and is chronicled in the excellent documentary “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart,” which had behind the scenes access to all the drama. Since that turbulent phase in their career, Wilco has steadily grown to become one of the most influential and respected groups in music today. The concert that will take place at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall will be a chance for Wilco fans to see a band on top of their game – it is no accident that the band has a reputation as excellent live performers.
If you are going to be seeing Wilco in Glasgow on Monday 24th October 2011, then you are probably thinking about accommodation for your stay. If this is the case, why not look at a serviced apartment? Serviced apartments are a popular alternative to hotels – they can offer much more comfort and space, and there are options for couples or lone travellers as well as families or groups.
