Wilco plays sucky UIC arena in October

OK, I’m a little slow on the draw. Wilco is playing a Chicago show Oct. 18 at UIC Pavilion. There’s a presale Thursday at 10 a.m. Check the band’s Web site for details.

This is a little disappointing. After seeing Wilco play cool venues like Auditorium Theatre and Pritzker Pavilion, the big barn at UIC is a letdown. UIC sounds like one of those shitty, outdated arenas built 50 years ago.  (It actually was built in the early ’80s, but it still sounds bad.) I guess Wilco graduated to arena rock.

  1. I agree, UIC pavilion is a barn. We saw the Foo Fighters there in ’03, as you might recall, and the accoustics left a lot to be desired. But I’d still check out Wilco there if the price is right.
