Tweedy's bus pulled up to the auditorium next to the student center today, and in between classes I would walk by in hopes of getting to meet him. He's got shows there tonight and tomorrow. Unfortunately I only got tickets for tomorrow's show and I didn't get to meet him today.

Still, it was pretty cool seeing them take all the Wilco merch off the bus and watching the crew move in all of Tweedy's gear.

There's a middle road there between "the general public" and "all indie." Jeff Tweedy is very well-known to alternative music fans. As a solo artist he sells out theatre venues across the country. But I feel the spirit in which Jeff Tweedy/Wilco operate is still indie regardless of how many records they sell or how popular they are.

if you ask any random high school or college kid, for instance, would she recognize his name?

Well he just sold out two nights at UT-Austin. But that's Austin.

Random college student, maybe. High school, no.

Keep in mind our two shows aren't limited to just students (my Okkervil River show this Sunday and Explosions in the Sky show in March at the same venue are, though). So that's the entire capitol city's worth of Wilco/Tweedy fans fitting into two nights in a 1,200 seat venue.

I'd say the vast majority of my peers here at UT have no clue who Tweeds is.



SUPER EDIT: Let's hear it for craigslist! Now I'm going tonight too for less than face value!



SAD EDIT: Alright, I called her back after making sure I had the cash and she sold it to someone else already. So basically she screwed me. I might go down to the theatre and try to secure someone's extra ticket, but as of right now, I'm not going tonight after all.

Really? That surprises me. Do they know Wilco? Don't they get airplay on college radio? Sometimes I'm clueless about these things and I figured college students were more likely to know him than the rest of the city.

Sorry your ticket deal fell through. Second night will be better, though, I bet.

I walked down to the auditorium with a sign that said "I need one ticket" and was able to get one for 25 dollars! Then after the opening act, the original lady called me and said the other person fell through and I could just have her other ticket. So I got it from her and put it at will call for my friend who is coming with me tomorrow night. For 25 dollars tonight I got an even better seat than I have tomorrow.


God, it was amazing too. I love that man.



And about college radio, I wouldn't know. I don't even know our station's frequency.

Allow me to sum up tonight (night of the second show) in one picture:









Ignore how terrible I look.

Ryan Adams has a song called "Blue Sky Blues", so that's all I think of.

Appreciate "Sky Blue Sky".

...The song.

This album as a whole contains Tweedy's finest song-writing, and the title track in particular just strikes a chord with me. It's seriously been helping me through the toughest spot in my life, along with the other songs of this album, and has been a sort of soundtrack to my life recently. It's simply beautiful:

Oh, the band marched on in formation
The brass was phasing tunes I couldn’t place
Windows open and raining in
Maroon, yellow, blue, gold and gray

The drunks were ricocheting
The old buildings downtown
Empty so long ago
Windows broken and dreaming
So happy to leave what was my home


With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn’t seem so bad to me now
Oh, I didn’t die
I should be satisfied
I survived
That's good enough for now


With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn’t seem so bad to me now
Oh, if I didn’t die
I should be satisfied
I survived
That's good enough for now

It's good, but I haven't quite cracked its shell yet (A Ghost Is Born reference! Hoo boy!). I'm looking forward to May 15th so I can rock it on my ghetto blaster (read: stereo in my truck) and see what it can do.
