I used to be a big X fan (I guess I still am, given how excited I got to see they're coming here soon). Do you know John Doe's stuff with them? If not, check out this great song:

See How We Are

Just saw in our local rag that Wilco's touring very shortly... now I've never heard a Wilco song, but from what I hear they go alright. If prices a reasonable should I go?

Why is it taking so long for a recording to surface from last Saturday? I know it's been less than a week, but DC tapers have already posted their recordings from this week.

I have to be perfectly honest. I didn't want to like Wilco for the longest time because it seemed everyone did. Like, they were the new fad band to follow. So I ignored them...

Until lately. The buzz around here had toned down a little bit so I gave in and gave them a try. Now...I'm hooked. And all I can think is why didn't I give them a try earlier?

I've liked Wilco for a long time. It seems weird to me now that they're the latest fad. It seems to seem weird to them, too. They're all so nice and gracious, and they've sounded better live these last few weeks than they ever have (SNL perhaps being the exception to that).

Funny. I don't really pay attention to new music or what other people are listening to until someone sits me down and plunks headphones on my, forcing me to listen to something new.

I had no idea Wilco were the hot "new" thing. I had no idea that people who weren't in college 8-15 years ago knew who Wilco was.

I should get out more.

I just got an email saying to stay tuned for an announcement of the return of Wilco to New Mexico on May 9th.

The day I'll be in Atlanta for Radiohead.

Touring in May? I wasn't expecting them back on the road until August. It makes sense, though--maybe they'll do some shows in the west, then come back through the midwest around the time of Lollapalooza (where they're rumored to be playing), then up the east coast in time for me to catch them a few times before I go back to teaching. Because, you know, it's all about me

That's lousy luck that you'll be away, but at least you know you'll be at a great show. Besides, Wilco seems to be on the road a lot more than Radiohead, so you can always catch them next time.

The Philadelphia recording is about the best thing ever

That's true, but they've only been here once. It's basically a miracle when anyone interesting comes to NM and when they do, I can always get practically the best seat in the house. So to be away when one of my favorite bands comes is just the biggest fattest rottenest of luck.

But I do love Radiohead more, and have seen Wilco three times and Radiohead only once.

And I'll see Radiohead twice...with martha!!






Still...

I don't know if I've mentioned this or not, but Wilco is the shit.

Thank you. That is all.

I got so excited when I saw Rochester...until I realized it was Minnesota. impy, it looks like you could get to see them this year after all. I'm holding out hope that they'll add some east coast dates around the time of the rescheduled Charleston show. Nice to see they're playing Winnipeg to make up for the show they had to cancel when Nels had the chicken pox last summer

All presales are next Wednesday, the 19th.
