It looks like this may be the "more news" we were promised back in April from Wilco. That being said, I'm pretty jealous of anyone living in Chicago - not only do you have access to amazing pizza (shout out to Lou Malnati's), but you also get a stellar residency from the folk-rock outfit later on this winter, appropriately named 'Winterlude'. It takes place over six dates at the Riviera Theater, and caps off their already announced fall tour, all coinciding with the band's 20th anniversary. WXRT reports that each night will have a different set list comprised of songs that span every part of the band's career, so it's bound to be a pretty special evening.

It's a part of WXRT's Holiday Concert for Kids, and if attendees are urged to bring toys, school supplies, and books which will be donated to local Children's Hospitals.

Not just that, but they've also revealed two archival box sets, one of which has 77 (seriously) studio and live recordings, many of which are incredibly rare and is titled Alpha Male Foxtrot. The second, What's Your 20, pulls from the band's eight studio albums and is essentially a greatest hits collection. They'll be out on 27 November.
