OLD TOWN — The hometown heroes of Wilco are celebrating 20 years since their landmark album “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” later this month by collaborating with an Old Town Foxtrot store.

Wilco partnered with Foxtrot for a pop-up event beginning 4 p.m. April 19 at its Old Town store, 1562 N. Wells St., that will feature a collection of Wilco-themed snacks and drinks.

Shoppers can buy Wilc-O’s Cereal, a partnership with Off Limits; Broken Heart Custom Gummies; or Jesus Don’t Cry Pilsner with Great Central Brewing, according to Foxtrot.

The limited edition items were designed in partnership between Foxtrot’s in-house creative team and local artist Louie Capozzoli.

The event happens in the middle of Wilco’s 20th anniversary tour for “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,” which begins Friday in New York City. The band is scheduled to perform at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre, 50 E. Ida B. Wells Drive, on April 22, 23 and 24.

The Wilc-O’s Cereal was made in partnership with Off Limits.
