One of the joys of living in Milwaukee is that we never go too long without a Wilco show (or, depending on which whim he's following, a show from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy).

Maxwell may not be the most reclusive of all the great neo-soul singers—that honor still belongs to D'Angelo, for now—but he works at a mighty slow clip.
