Wilco's Jeff Tweedy -- who grew up 20 miles or so outside St. Louis, in Belleville, Illinois, before moving his band to Chicago -- played a solo set at the fest. Beforehand, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay declared the day (August 29) Jeff Tweedy Day in St. Louis.
Onstage later in the evening, Tweedy mentioned the honor and somewhat jokingly called it "the stupidest thing I've ever heard." Then he said that nobody would have to go to work tomorrow, because "traditionally 'Jeff Tweedy Day' is a three-day weekend...or kind of a 30-year weekend." Watch it below. And here's a review of the show from the Riverfront Times.
