Wilco to appear on The Colbert Report on Thursday

    Following in the footsteps of Nas, Feist, R.E.M., Apples in Stereo, the Decemberists, and the Roots, Wilco will be performing on “The Cobert Report” this Thursday night at 11:30 p.m. EST. The band is on the show presumably because of front man Jeff Tweedy’s support of Obama—or maybe Colbert gets down to Wilco. We’ll find out on Thursday.
