Established in 2010 - the Solid Sound Festival kicks off at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts on Friday evening. The art and music festival is curated by Chicago-based rock band, Wilco, and features an eclectic line-up of music, art, comedy, food, and family activities.
John Stirratt has been Wilco’s bassist since the band was founded in 1994. He’ll be on hand at Solid Sound to play with Wilco, and his other band, The Autumn Defense will play an acoustic set with strings on Sunday in MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center. Stirratt is also one partner responsible for Tourists, a new motor-lodge in North Adams.
