Vote Tweedy ’08

Promise to cast a ballot, get a free Wilco tune. Change you can listen to before you believe in.

October 1, 2008

As much as my girlfriend points and laughs (uncomfortably, probably) when I say it, the fact remains: I’d probably go gay for Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy. It’s a total unhealthy mancrush, but this post isn’t about singing the praises of the squat, bearded little god, but to pass along how you can get a free rare tune from Wilco. They played a typically great show a couple weeks back in Bend, and one of the highlights was a set-closing cover of Bob Dylan’s "I Shall Be Released" with some harmonic help from Seattle’s Fleet Foxes.

Turns out Wilco is offering that tune up for free download at their website. All they ask in return is that you make a pledge to vote in the next election. Sounds simple enough, right? So get to clickin’ at

If you listen very closely, you can hear me squealing like a little girl.
