Wilco Announces May 7 Performance at University of North Texas Auditorium

Wilco is coming for you, Denton.
Quite the to-do yesterday evening on ye olde Twitter, as some advantageous Wilco fan started blasting out the news they'd seen on the band's web site announcing a handful of southeast shows from the band in early May -- a handful that includes a Saturday, May 7, stop in Denton for a performance at the University of North Texas Auditorium -- and the rest of the regional Twittersphere started freaking out over the news, which, indeed, is fairly exciting stuff.

But let's hold our horses here: There's no word yet on ticket sales -- not on the Wilco's web site, and not from booking conglomerate AEG Live, which, as we understand it, is company behind bringing this show to Denton. As of now, AEG just ain't talking at all -- but the company has promised to pass along any info our way as soon as they can. So, we'll keep you posted.

Update: Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 4, at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets.

In the meantime, feel free to continue freaking out accordingly. One local music blog already has, taking to Twitter to express their excitement, which, and I'm paraphrasing here, goes so far as to claim this announcement as the single greatest thing to happen to Denton maybe ever. Hyperbole sure is fun, huh?

DENTON?! What the hell is wrong with playing in Dallas? That's a long drive from downtown.

In case you haven't heard. Denton's a tad bit cooler place than the Big D....

you don't have to be a student. Pearl Jam played there with Gibby Haines/Haynes ??? (Mr. Peppermint's kid's band in the late 90s or so during their Let's Boycott Ticketmaster quest r and it's open to all- even to the 18 yr old college kids who might not know who or what a Wilco is. :)

I'm not making a value judgment, I just don't want to have to drive 300 miles (that figure may not be accurate) to see one of my favorite bands.

For the record, I do like Denton.

Do Denton kids even know who Wilco is? That's like so pre 2009, man.
