Jeff Tweedy and his side project, simply named Tweedy, came back from a week long break to play on the fourth of July at the Ottawa Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario. Tweedy and his band, made up of guitarist Jim Elkington, bassist Darin Gray, keyboard player Liam Cunningham, and Spencer Tweedy (Tweedy's 18-year old son) on drums, took the Blacksheep Stage, LeBreton Flats Friday evening to play seven songs off their upcoming debut disc Sukierae, (dropping on dBpm Records on Sept. 16), plus a crowd pleasing batch of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo songs. It went something like this:
“High as Hello”
“I Am Trying To Break Your Heart”
“I’m The Man Who Loves You”
“Shot in the Arm”
“You Are Not Alone”
“California Stars” (Tweedy changed California to Canada for the occasion singing “Can-a-dian” in the chorus)
