Lead singer and rhythm guitarist for Detholz, Jim Cooper.
Opening Act: Detholz
Wilco is joined on this tour by the Chicago band Detholz. Wilco has long supported new and emerging artists from the city. Detholz (pronounced "death holes") play a quirky mix of punk, new wave and experimental rock with doses of what they call "Christian kitsch."

"I had lots of arguments with people about this record. Most of them went like this: Them: It's so noisy. Me: Yes, but there's some poise within that, like on 'Hummingbird' and 'Handshake Drugs.' Them: The guitars sound deranged. Me: When was the last time you heard such dramatic derangement? Them: The songs seem sorta blasted apart. Me: At a time when so many songs seem prefabbed by some software program, is that such a bad thing?"
