Jeff Tweedy is the songwriter of the decade, in my view. Being There, Summerteeth, and YHF are simply a mindblowing series of albums. I'm glad that the entire debacle with their record company won them a whole new audience, because for years I worried that they would slide by in music history, their genius unnoticed.

Hallelulah here she comes, I've seen Wilco many times but the performance you witnessed sounds nearly untouchable. Since Tweedy played many new songs, I assume he played "Less Than You Think"? That tune is one of the most stunning songs I've ever heard.

(for the record, my favorite of Wilco's albums is summerteeth.)
That's my favorite album as well. Candyfloss is simply the most perfect pop song ever written.

I don't think he played "Less Than You Think." He did play what I think was a new song called Millionaire, which was really raw and beautiful. It was just one example of how even though I didn't recognize a song, I found it completely mesmerizing. Here's the whole setlist, if you're curious:

I'm the Man Who Loves You / Airline to Heaven /
Millionaire / When You Wake Up Feeling Old / Wait Up /
Forget the Flowers / Candy Floss /
Nothingsevergonnastandinmywayagain / Old Maid / Dear
Employer / Heavy Metal Drummer / Box Full of Letters /
someday some morning sometime / Sunken Treasure / At
Least That's What You said / Screen Door / Hesitating
Beauty / the Lonely 1 / Wilco: Misunderstood / Far Far
Away / War on War / We've Been Had / New Madrid / One
by One / I Am Trying To Break Your Heart / California
Stars / Passenger Side // Encore 2: I'm A Wheel /
Casino Queen / Outta Mind (Outta Site)

I thought I was gonna freaking explode with joy when they started playing Outta Mind (Outta Site). But anyway.

Funny you should mention the Loose Fur album, because I just pre-ordered it from Amazon last night. I'm really interested to hear it, but I'm not really sure what to expect. In terms of Jeff Tweedy/Wilco collaborations, I downloaded a song yesterday called "I'll Make Believe That She's You" that Jeff and Jay did with a guy named Jim Cuddy and I'm completely in love with it. You've probably heard it already, but I had to recommend it.

Here's my wilco story. I had tickets to see Wilco last....October I think. I'd only heard a little bit of their stuff at that point, but I liked what I heard. One of my friends is reeeally into Wilco and was totally psyched for the show. Anyway, they were good tickets, the venue was a small theater in San Fran (Warfield - pretty famous actually).

Day of the concert rolls around and...I. CAN'T. FIND. MY. TICKETS. I had both my ticket and my older brother's, and I searched the entire house up and down with no luck, my guess is that someone accidentally threw them in the trash while cleaning the house.

So we actually went to the Warfield and tried to plead our case (since they were assigned seats and they would go unused), but no luck.

So I missed seeing Wilco live, but since then I've become a big fan of their stuff. YHF took a while to really sink in, but I love it now. Being There is also a really good album - and for a double album there's surprisingly little filler.

GAAAAH. That blows, Deimen. I would have been hurting things if that had happened to me. But I'm it's cool that you became a fan, anyway. And I'm sure you'll get a chance to see them live. Fortunately, they tend to tour more often than some other guys we know. *cough*

If anything like that ever happens again, God forbid, I recommend calling ticketmaster and telling them the tickets never came in the mail. They'll put them on will call, and all you'll need to pick them up from the venue box office window is the confirmation email you got from ticketmaster, your driver's license, and the credit card you used to buy the tickets. This actually happened to me once. Of course, these were tickets I ended up trying to sell, so I had to go to the venue with the people who I sold the tickets to, get the tickets for them, give them the tickets and then leave. Did I mention this was a U2 show? Gah. But yeah, the whole will call thing should work. [/ramble]
