A Private Concert in Your Living Room with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco

The Second City's 24 Hour tradition is back-- with a twist! This year, the Grammy-winning Wilco frontman is auctioning off TWO private, acoustic living room shows. Over the last 12 years, Jeff has graciously helped us raise nearly a million dollars for disadvantaged Chicago families via the Letters to Santa program.

Want him to come to your house to play 30 songs that you choose for you & 29 of your closest friends? Here's how you can make that dream a reality:

BID IN PERSON on November 23rd at our 24 Hour event: Jeff will be at Second City's e.t.c. Theater in person at 9:00 pm, playing some tunes 'n raising some money for a great cause. Entry to the live event is just $20 as long as seats are available.

BID ONLINE at charitybuzz.com now through December 3rd.

Kim Deal and co. were outstanding. Even better than usual.

Jeff raised like a jillion dollars by agreeing to do like a hundred concerts.

Laughed a bunch.

Good start.

I posted a link to FM Steve's excellent article "Why I Haven't Had a Conventional Christmas in 20 Years" on Twitter last night.

It got a bunch of retweets, most unexpectedly from the actress from "Everybody Loves Raymond".

Anyway, I hope to attend one of these shows myself sometime. Hope it's going great!

What's the total raised so far?

It's nice to see that Steve's studio auction is actually getting fair market value this year.

EDIT: Facebook currently says $209,690.

Sofia Mia is the daughter of Chicago Improv legend Susan Messing. She's really cute and really funny (she a good friend of a my neighbor's daughter). I saw her perform at 24 Hours of Improv when she couldn't have been more than 6 years old. She did a whole song/routine about losing a tooth that fucking killed.
