Watch Wilco Perform a Surprise Open Mic Set in Dallas
Wilco surprised guests at Poor David's Pub in Dallas last week when they unexpectedly took the stage at an open mic night.
Guitarist Pat Sansone wasn't there, but a lineup featuring frontman Jeff Tweedy, guitarist Nels Cline, bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glenn Kotche and keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen found their way onstage.
Wilco was reportedly on their way to a scheduled concert in Dallas taking place on Sept. 28 when they saw a sign for the open mic and decided to stop in. They played an hourlong set that included Wilco songs and covers of favorites by Bob Dylan, Stoney Edwards and Doug Sahm.
