Wilco's Jeff Tweedy to play Carnegie Lecture Hall of Oakland

Tickets go on sale at 7 p.m. Jan. 11 for an April 4 show by Jeff Tweedy in the Carnegie Lecture Hall of Oakland.

Buck Meek will be the special guest for the concert by the Wilco frontman, who is touring in support of “Warm,” his first solo album of all new material that was released Nov. 30.

Reserved seating tickets starting at $59.50 will be available at 800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com .

Tweedy will appear tonight on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” at 11:35 p.m. on ABC, to perform songs from “Warm,” which is a companion piece to Tweedy’s recent memoir, “Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back),” published Nov. 13 by Dutton Books.

Online music magazine Pitchfork named “Warm” its “Best New Music” for 2018, according to a release. Pitchfork writer Sam Sodomsky called the autobiographical album “a moral guidebook from a songwriter who sings with such compassion that even his simplest advice (‘Don’t forget to brush your teeth’) can make your eyes well up. … Alive and inspired, ‘WARM’ is a different type of reinvention — as daring as Wilco’s early landmarks but more subtle and sustainable.”

The April 4 show will start at 7:30 p.m. in the venue at 4400 Forbes Ave. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
