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

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
