As far as I know, we're the only board members going, so we have to snap a ton of photos for everyone missing out.
The weather is supposed to be a little iffy in NEPA tomorrow, so I'm leaving extra early in case it takes me more than four hours. Plus, I prefer driving when it's light out, especially since I'm going to a part of Philly where I've never been before.

The shirts will all probably end up on the website sooner or later, but the posters often sell out. I've yet to go to a show where there's been a poster I've actually liked, but I'm going to check them out again this time.

Summerteeth is your LEAST favorite? Wow.

Nels is BADASS live. He's so bad, that bad ass becomes one word. Its fusion.
[Edit: LM beat me to the setlist]

It's weird that Summerteeth is my least favorite, because I don't dislike it at all. I just don't listen to it as much as I do some of the others. There are a few songs on it that I adore, like the title track, Via Chicago, and How to Fight Loneliness, but I can't remember the last time I listened to a few of the other songs.

I agree that Nels is BADASS, as well as with the fact that he's one of the best things to ever happen to Wilco. He gets a tad showy at times, but the guy worked so hard in complete obscurity for so many years (he was working retail jobs for nearly 20 years just so he could barely scrape by and play in his spare time) that he deserves to show off now and then. I hope that if I ever get that good at anything that I can still stay as humble as he has.

/ me geeking out about Nels

It's going to be even worse here, I suspect. 1-2 inches of snow tonight, and a wintry mix tomorrow with light snow showers on Saturday. Hardly sounds like clear sailing, but it should be OK once we get onto the freeway.

I had no idea the posters were such a hot commodity. I will have a look see in case there's anything I'm particularly wild about. I'll probably pick up a shirt for sure if they're being sold.

Well, that's the residency. The Lakewood, OH gig will give us a better idea of what the Philly gig will look like length-wise. Probably in the ballpark of 23-27 songs.

Yeah, I just didn't know the residency was doing shows that long. I guess that explains the intermissions.

The other two times I've seen them, they've played 22 and 24 songs. Though I certainly won't complain if they decide to play for three hours

I'm glad they have a show between the residency and our show. It will give us a little more of an idea of what to expect.

Some lossless bootlegs are out and about for those so inclined.

By the way, Nels just looks like a guy who plays in a rock band should. He seems very at home on stage. If that makes sense. Sometimes, I do not make sense. That's just my way.

I think I lost any hope of being productive again until Sunday sometime yesterday.

I figured LemonMelon would beat me to posting about the show, but I guess not.

It was absolutely incredible. Not quite the setlist I was hoping for (no Ashes Of American Flags, Misunderstood, or Too Far Apart [or anything from A.M., for that matter]), but it was still hands down the best show I've ever been to. They opened with Sunken Treasure, which was gorgeous, then followed it with a trio of Woody Guthrie songs--Remember the Mountain Bed, Airline to Heaven, and Hesitating Beauty. I have a hard time coming up with highlights because the whole show was so good. What I loved most was being close enough to see how the guys interact and feed off of one another's energy. Nels's and Pat's dueling guitar riffs at the end of Hoodoo Voodoo was such a great way to close the show.

I was a little disappointed with how short the show was, mainly because Jeff said they had "a long program" in store for us last night but were still done in about two hours. Something about curfew, but really I think it was because there was some sort of meet and greet thing they had to go to afterwards. Jeff wasn't particularly chatty during the show, but he, along with all of them, was in high spirits. I was also surprised that they didn't play I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, Heavy Metal Drummer, Spiders, or anything off of A.M. It was a great, eclectic mix of songs, though, and every member got his chance to shine, from Glenn's monster rock drummer moment at the start of I'm the Man Who Loves You to Nels's near-combustion at the end of Handshake Drugs.

One of the biggest things I came away from last night's show with is a new admiration for Jeff as a guitarist. A few amazing solos I'd always attributed to Nels (mainly the ones in ITMWLY) are actually his.

My pictures from the show all came out really crappy. I think I may have had some problems with my shutter speed or something, because they were all blurry and freaky looking
