In The Crowd

Before embarking on a summer tour, John Stirratt and Pat Sansone took time away from Wilco to perform as their band Autumn Defense for a Friday night at Schubas.

Along with drummer Greg Wiz, the trio soothed the packed audience with their '70s folk bliss and pitch perfect harmonies.

The trio also filled their hour-long set with new material from their upcoming third album, which is set for release in October.

Even more buzz than the band's next album was the news about Stirratt adding the title of "newlywed" next to "singer/songwriter/bassist/guitarist".
