Wilco, Sam Roberts Band, Damian Marley and many more to play free shows on LiveCity Yaletown Stage in David Lam Park for 2010 Olympics
Chicago band, Wilco, is coming to Vancouver on February 13th. This free concert starts at 9pm at David Lam Park, right on the seawall.
I've been hearing good things about Wilco for a while and when I finally checked them out, I didn't know how I ever lived without them. http://hypem.com/search/wilco

What an awesome lineup of big names. Where is this magical stage? At the crux of Pacific Boulevard and Drake Street.
Some pretty cool acts are headlining at the Whistler Victory Ceremonies but you can only get tickets if you live between Squamish and Mount Currie. Do you need to show a recent magazine subscription to get a ticket?
