“When people ask what kind of music ‘Austin City Limits’ stands for,” executive producer Terry Lickona says, “ there’s one band that sums it up better than any other –Wilco!” Airing this Saturday, Feb. 4, this is the fourth appearance of this veteran modern rock band on the TV show.

Concentrating on its latest release The Whole Love, the Chicago sextet puts such stellar tracks as “Art of Almost,” “One Wing” and “Dawned On Me” through their paces with near-perfect poise. It’s not all the new album, of course, as the band also drops a few deep cuts like “Bull Black Nova” and “War On War” into the set. And if that ain’t enough, Wilco tourmate Nick Lowe drops by with his classic “Cruel to Be Kind,” backed by the boys themselves.

“Austin City Limits” airs Saturday on a PBS-TV station near you. Check local times and listings.
