Wilco lead guitarist Nels Cline to headline a benefit performance for Urban Air premium!

Breaking News:

Nels Cline, the "Avant-Romantic" lead guitarist of Wilco - one of our new century's most creative rock groups - will bring his "kaleidoscopic", "blistering", "head spinning" virtuosity to perform live at the Urban Air Performance Evening. (premium #7)

"He walks amongst you", Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy declared to the audience after an especially electrifying Nels solo at their recent Hollywood Bowl performance. Rolling Stone has slotted Nels in their "Top Twenty New Guitar Gods".

For the Urban Air event, Nels will be joined by Arrogant Elbow, the spectacle and performance group of Urban Air producer Sarah Elgart, who will respond to Nels' music to create an original site-work and performance installation with production design by Stephen Glassman. The event is scheduled for mid January, 2013 here in Los Angeles. A venue will be chosen when we have a clearer idea of attendance.

This will be a spectacular and unforgettable evening! Keep in touch for more news!
