How much money would you pay to be in this dressing room?

During their recent run of shows in their hometown of Chicago, American Songwriter’s 2011 Album of the Year winners performed a feel-good version of The Band staple “The Weight” with Mavis Staples and opening act (and honorary Wilco member) Nick Lowe.

The band just released the rehearsal footage, which is even better than the real thing.

Bonus – watch a video created by Jeff Tweedy’s son Spencer to the band’s song “The Whole Love,” starring Tweedy’s other son, Sam, and Tami Gevinson.
