Jeff Tweedy celebrates his 56th birthday today.

Tweedy has been a leader in Americana-driven rock music as a founding member of Wilco, with the band’s influence informing countless other acts over the years since the band’s inception in 1994. Born from the remaining members of Tweedy’s former alternative country act Uncle Tupelo following the group’s breakup, Wilco has been a true musical force whose sound has consistently pushed boundaries, evolving from the alt-country sound of the group’s origins to become one of the biggest names in alternative rock with two Grammys to its name.

While Tweedy’s studio work with Wilco has received critical acclaim, he and the rest of the Wilco crew are known for their excellent live performances, with the group frequently topping bills on the festival circuit as well as regularly touring across the country and internationally. To celebrate the start of Mr. Tweedy’s 56th trip around the sun, take a look at a few of our favorite Wilco performances and live collaborations from over the years below.
