Recently, the band Wilco celebrated their 20th Anniversary together, but back in 2002, during the recording of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, the band nearly broke up. Join KRCL on Thursday, Dec, 11 @ Brewvies Cinema Pub in Salt Lake for a screening of “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart: A Film About Wilco” by Sam Jones. This black and white documentary follows the band through the recording and distribution of their fourth studio album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The film provides a unique insight into the politics of bands and their record labels, as well as an inside look at Wilco during the creation of what many critics describe as a landmark album.
Bring your KRCL membercard to Brewvies Cinema Pub for “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart: A Film About Wilco” – Thursday, Dec, 11. Tickets at 7pm, screening at 8pm
We’ll also be giving away a copy of the 4CD Box Set Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014 and the new best of 2CD set What’s Your 20?, after the movie.
