Wilco at Ommegang, Wilco at MASS MoCA

wilco at solid sound 2010

Wilco at MASS MoCA in 2010.

There's no Solid Sound Festival this year, but Wilco will be playing two shows in the region this summer:

Brewery Ommegang
Wilco is playing outside at the Belgian-style brewery in Cooperstown July 28. Tickets go on sale this Friday (April 13) at 11 am. The Lee Ranaldo Band opens.

Tickets are $42 ahead, $50 day of (kids under 12 free). Camping is another $15. It's a rain or shine event.

MASS MoCA
Wilco is playing a benefit show for the museum July 31. It will be indoors, in the museum's Hunter Center, with a capacity limited to 1000 people.

MASS MoCA members get first crack at the tickets this Wednesday and Thursday (April 11 and 12) -- a limited allotment will be made available at the price of $113 (limit 2 per member) -- by calling the museum's box office (413.662-2111 x1) between 11am and 5pm . After that, the tickets will go up for a public auction/lottery that starts Friday. Details for that are after the jump.

And, if you're planning way ahead, the next Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA is June 21-23, 2013.

From MASS MoCA:

The first 500 tickets will be sold to bidders who make the highest offers online over a two and a half day period which begins at 10 AM on Friday, April 13, and runs through 10 AM on Monday, April 16. To maximize the chance of getting tickets -- and also support MASS MoCA -- bidders should make the highest offer they can. Those whose bids are not among the top 500 will still have a chance to score tickets to this performance when their bid is placed into a random lottery. Bidders drawn from a hat will be offered the opportunity to purchase a pair of tickets at the price named on their bid form.

I'm in a similar situation. I was just going to ignore it (not take the free turkey) but if I can donate it to a charity I am all over that like gravy on mashed potatoes.
