Nels Cline At LPR Tonight, Blue Note Friday

If, like us, you're stuck in the city and not lucky enough to be attending Wilco's Solid Sound Festival next weekend, fear not: you still have a chance to get a taste of some Wilco-y goodness. Nels Cline is popping into New York this week for two shows, and we can assure you that the Wilco axe-man is well worth hearing in his other pursuits.

The first show is tonight at Le Poisson Rouge with noted guitar compatriot Marc Ribot. The second is on Friday at the Blue Note, where Cline will be participating in "Spontaneous Construction" with Billy Martin, Jacob Sacks, and Oren Bloedow. We'll be hitting up tonight's show, as we're fans of Ribot as well, and we certainly recommend you do the same.
