Wilco expanding their Mass MoCA-located festival to include non-Wilco-related bands

This summer, Wilco will curate their first-ever Solid Sound Festival, which, unlike a lot of these high-profile summer music festivals, will actually take place in Massachusetts. Granted, Mass MoCA (in North Adams) is still a couple of hours away from Boston, but that's a lot closer than, say, Manchester, Tennessee.

Anyway, the initial lineup announced for this thing was Wilco with special guests On Fillmore, The Nels Cline Singers, The Autumn Defense, and Pronto - in other words, Wilco and every non-Tweedy Wilco-er's other project. Which would have been fine, I guess, but they've gone ahead an added some variety to the mix regardless, and, really, that's better for everyone. The new lineup now includes, among others, Vetiver, Avi Buffalo, Mountain Man, and North Adams's own Books. Download songs from the latter two below; check the full lineup here; the site indicates more additions to the lineup still to be announced, so stay tuned.
