Wilco Over the band's 17-year career, Jeff Tweedy's Wilco has gradually moved from a roots-rock band to something a bit more nebulous, as though the bandleader were with each album further distancing himself from his whiskey bottle and Levi's past. The band is having fun not only with sound but with structure on "The Whole Love," without sacrificing catchiness. Nearly every song contains some tangential surprise, odd hook, sonic back flip or midsong redefinition. Los Angeles Theatre, 615 S. Broadway, L.A. 7 p.m. $49. ticketmaster.com.
