Bad indie videos. I loved them in Point Break

I really adore Nels Cline. He seems like such a sweet, goofy, affable guy, and he's a mind-blowingly talented guitarist. He's brought so much to Wilco as a live act. I have to be in Chicago right before New Year's for a conference, so I'm really hoping they decide to do a New Year's Eve show this year.

Wilco has already announced that they're not planning to tour as extensively next year. That's not to say that Tweedy won't do a solo tour, and Glenn won't do some solo shows, and John won't tour with the Autumn Defense and Nels won't tour with any of his solo projects. I actually really like a lot of their side projects, so I don't think time off the road will be a bad thing for any of them. I also wouldn't be shocked to find out they're thinking of heading back to the studio soon.

I wish I could've seen them this fall. They were great this summer, and I love that they've been breaking out a lot of the older tunes off A.M. and Being There lately. I was considering going down to Pittsburgh Friday, but I'm moving this weekend, so it just can't work.

Wilco is one of the few bands I'll travel a long distance to see. They're terrific. I've loved them for awhile, but this summer they worked theirway up to sharing a spot with U2 as my favorite band.

Well its always hard to say with this sort of thing, but that may have been the best show I have ever seen. Now, Wilco will probably never be the spectacle that bands like U2 are, but they are simply phenomenal musicians who know how to put on a great show. They played 24 songs for 2 hours and I felt like they had only been playing for 30 minutes. I was riveting stuff.

Tweedy is a great front man and Nels is a joy to watch. Not only is he a tremendous guitarist, but he looks like an ADD child on cocaine. He's ALWAYS doing something.

Here's the set list:


Either Way
You Are My Face
IATTBYH
Pot Kettle Black (Yessss!!!!)
Handshake Drugs
Side with the Seeds
Shot in the Arm
Via Chicago
Impossible Germany
SBS
Too Far Apart (huh?)
Walken
ITMWLY
Hummingbird (w/ Andrew Bird)
In A Future Age (w/ A.B.)
Spiders (w/ A.B.)

Encore 1:
Jesus Etc. (w/ A.B.)
Hate It Here
HMD

Encore 2:
Red Eyed & Blue>I Got U
Casino Queen
Outta Site Outta Mind


Wowee wow, wow, wow.

Andrew fiddled and whistled.

I am seriously jealous of his whistling skills.

There were a few people in front of me recording the show.

The fox theater is a great place for a recording because the sound is so good.

I hear Jeff was wearing some crazy suits the last few nights. I always love his onstage banter, too.

Nels sort of reminds me of a Dr. Seuss character because he does things like this while he's playing:

Casino Queen
Outta Site Outta Mind
Their encores have been great lately, but that's one of the best ones I've seen yet. They closed with Outtsa Site Outta Mind last time I saw them, and I loved it. Red Eyed and Blue is one of my favorites.

The second encore from Dalton's show (the one BIMM is salivating over) was the end of their ACL Fest set this year. It's great to hear those all played together mostly for the effect it has on the die hards in the audience. I love that massive group reaction of like-minded Wilco fanatics upon hearing those songs. It's a wonderful moment for the true fans to share together.

I love this band.

Sounds like an awesome show, Dalton. I could kick myself for not trying harder to get to the shows that came within a day's drive of me over the summer but my life was too crazy. But I still have the Tweedy itty bitty solo show in Marfa, Texas, last winter carrying me through these Wilco-less days.

One thing I love about live Wilco is that every member of the band is a joy to watch.

Tweedy got a huge cheer when he told the crowd that they were WAY cooler than the audience the previous night in Columbus (hated college rivals).

He said that "those people in columbus were a bunch of [high pitched whisper]pussies[/high pitched whisper].

Pretty damn funny - whether he meant it or not.


Via Chicago was a thing of majestic beauty. They started out soft and melodic and then all of a sudden they would break into this incredible dissonant jam and then just as suddenly, without any noticeable band cues they would come back in beat perfect to a mellow verse. It was breathtaking.
