Much can be said about Wilco founder and frontman Jeff Tweedy, one of the most accomplished American songwriters in recent decades. No matter what genre he takes on, Tweedy always demonstrates an emotional warmth, and with 17 albums under his belt, he has touched nearly every sound under the sun, from alt-country, rock, folk, experimental, and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot — an album that remains an influential island all on its own. And really, anything is possible when you mix Tweedy, a guitar, and an anthology of some of indie critics’ favorite jams. Chicago-based duo Ohmme rounds out the bill.

Jeff Tweedy will perform on Thursday, April 5 at the Royal Oak Music Theatre; Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets are $35-$55.
