Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy will tape an episode of “Austin City Limits” on June 20, a day before his sold-out show at the Texas Union Ballroom, the television show announced on its website today.

Both the ACL taping and the Ballroom show will include new material from an upcoming album to be released under Tweedy’s own name, performed with a backing band that includes his son Spencer Tweedy on drums along with guitarist Jim Elkington, keyboardist Liam Cunningham and bassist Darin Gray. In addition, Tweedy will play some solo acoustic versions of songs from the Wilco and Uncle Tupelo catalogs.
