Nels is certainly a superior guitarist from a technical standpoint, but I've got to give Tweedy props for the At Least That's What You Said solo, which is arguably my favorite Wilco moment ever.

^^^ I agree with this, though probably tied with some part of Sunken Treasure.

Ummm, yeah. I might be falling in love with Wilco. As we speak. Isn't that a great feeling? When you start to really dive into a band's catalogue and you realize "This is going to become one of my favorite bands."

Shit. Well I had no idea that this band wrote the song The Late Greats. I've heard that song dozens of times, always loved it...that's a wonderful melody. Great song. And SNAP! it's a Wilco song. You learn something new every day.

I will report back with more as I progress on my journey of Wilco discovery.

I'd go to that one if I felt like ever driving to El Paso. Which I don't.


They need to press Kicking Television on vinyl. Maybe they'll do it for the impending reissues.

I forgot about the webcast.

More tour dates. Red Rocks. That's the day after my best friend's birthday and he's a huge Wilco fan though I had said no more shows this year because of the U2 bankruptcy priority.

JUN 19 Las Vegas, NV The Joint
JUL 03 Morrison, CO Red Rocks
JUL 08 Vienna, VA Wolf Trap
JUL 10 Wilmington, DE Frawley Stadium
JUL 11 Lowell, MA LeLacheur Park
JUL 13 Brooklyn, NY Keyspan Park
JUL 17 Portland, ME Maine State Pier
JUL 18 Wappingers Falls, NY Dutchess Stadium
JUL 19 Lewiston, NY Art Park
AUG 25 London, UK Troxy
AUG 27 Dublin, IRE Vicar Street

I'm most likely selling my U2 tickets to do some Wilco shows. They just mean so much more to me right now.

I'm not thrilled about these dates, though. The locations are fine, but they're in a strange order--Delaware to Massachusetts, then back to Brooklyn, then to Maine? There are a lot of difficult driving days. There will be a show in New England or upstate NY on the 14th or 15th, I'm guessing. Their manager recently bought a house in Northampton (Jeff announced during his solo show there last month), so I'll be surprised if it's not there.

I may do either Vienna and Wilmington or the last three dates of the tour. I've never been to Maine, so that's a plus.

Also, for anyone who's interested, Nels and Mike Watt are opening for M. Ward's (free, I think?) show in Central Park August 1.
