Jeff Tweedy is no stranger to playing in Milwaukee, but his Nov. 11 stop will be to discuss his new book.

As Wilco prepares to celebrate 30 years of existence in 2024, Jeff Tweedy is getting a head start by embarking on a solo fall tour. But the frontman from one of America's greatest jam bands won't be playing tunes; he'll be discussing his new book about songs that inspired him. The tour includes a stop in Milwaukee.

"World Within a Song: Music that Changed My Life and Life That Changed My Music" is the mouthful of a title for Tweedy's book that contains 50 songs that "enhanced his own craft and impacted the way he remembers his past." With 12 studio albums — and No. 13, Cousin, due out Sept. 29 — I imagine Tweedy's needed plenty of musical inspiration over the years.

The eight-city book tour that starts in Tweedy's hometown of Chicago on Nov. 5 and will make its way to Milwaukee's Pabst Theater on Saturday, Nov. 11. Each stop includes a "special guest," including guitarist Nathan Salsburg in Cincinnati and actor Nick Offerman in Los Angeles. Milwaukee's guest is still to be announced, but we know a few local celebrity DJs who are ready and available.

Tickets for the show at the Pabst, co-sponsored by Boswell Book Company, are on sale now for $30. Every ticket includes a signed copy of "World Within a Song."
