These pioneers of alt-country have garnered a loyal following over the years thanks to the songwriting of frontman Jeff Tweedy. A sizable crowd turned out to see one of the two headliners for the festival’s opening night. The group is currently touring in support of a greatest-hits double album released in 2014 to mark the band’s twentieth anniversary.
