Wilco perform ‘Cut Your Hair’ with Stephen Malkmus, ‘Kamera’ with Spoon’s Britt Daniel at Sky Blue Sky

Over the weekend, Wilco rounded out their Sky Blue Sky festival in Mexico with performances with Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus and Spoon’s Britt Daniel.

During their headlining Sky Blue Sky festival set, they brought out Malkmus to cover Pavement’s 1994 track, “Cut Your Hair.” Wilco have covered the track several times over the years, but this performance saw Malkmus taking the lead vocal lines.

Wilco also brought out Daniel during the set to perform their own 2001 Yankee Hotel Foxtrot track, “Kamera.”

Both Malkmus and Spoon performed during the three day festival. Wilco headlined every night of Sky Blue Sky. Malkmus and Daniel weren’t the only artists to join Wilco on stage during their headlining sets. In fact, Kurt Vile came on stage for “Passenger Side” and Soccer Mommy’s Sophie Allison joined for a performance of “Pot Kettle Black.” Mavis Staples also performed “You Are Not Alone” with the band alongside a cover of The Staple Sisters’ “Freedom Highway.”

Aside from Sky Blue Sky, Wilco have been quite busy. In October, they covered The Beatles’ “Dig A Pony” and “Don’t Let Me Down” for Amazon Music. The Amazon Original covers come as a part of Amazon Music’s month-long [RE]DISCOVER campaign for The Beatles. This program comes in celebration of the Let It Be Special Edition, which came out on October 15th. Wilco have truly added their own twist to the classic tunes.

Their induction into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame recently aired as well. During the induction, they performed a star-studded rendition of “California Stars.” On stage, Wilco were joined by Japanese Breakfast, Sheila E., Margo Price, Rosanne Cash, Lenny Kaye, Bill Callahan, Terry Allen, and Alex Ruiz. Nels Cline, Jason Isbell, Escovedo, and Lloyd Maines also joined them.
