Wilco rocked my soul Saturday night

And I mean ROCKED for 2 hours and 20 minutes. It was just so friggin fantastic I can hardly stand it. Every song, without exception, was better live than on the record. I cannot tell you the shockwaves of unbridled joy that went through my body when the jam kicked in on "Kidsmoke" which is not even my favorite song on "A Ghost is Born" but live it was just mindblowing. And during songs like (my favorite) "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" it occured to me that they are sort've like the American Radiohead--they've totally got that mad scientist thing going on onstage. The band is so amazing, so versatile, and a complete joy to watch and hear (the new guitar player is awesome and I don't miss the old band). It didn't hurt that I was in the second row center. It was bliss.

Hands down, my vote for best American band and after this show, they easily took their rightful place right alongside U2 and Radiohead as one of my top 3 favorite bands of all time.

Augie March opened the show and he was good except that he and his band were seriously lacking in anything even remotely resembling personality, stage presence or human emotion. If the band weren't so tight I'd wonder if they had a pulse.

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! I always call it Kidsmoke for some reason.

Funny story...some girl appeared onstage from the wings and started doing the Ashlee Simpson jig. Everyone was laughing but Tweedy didn't know she was onstage. Suddenly he looked over and there she was right beside him and the look on his face was priceless. After the song, he said, "Man, that scared the PISS outta me. Seriously, I think I wet myself. It's not often that a woman appears on the Wilco stage and when it happens, it's usually planned in advance, but I guess we do need a little help with dancing and choreography and all that. Too bad she was deranged." And then later in the show he said, "I mean, you guys saw her, too, right?!"

Yes! It's like he doesn't know what to do with himself when he doesn't have a guitar in his hands, lol.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the BEAUTIFUL images projected on the screen throughout the show. Great artistic director.

leno, right.

any idea which song they'll play? i'm guessing 'at least that's what you said' would be more than a little kick ass.

No clue what they'll play. They played Theologians on Conan a couple of months ago. I hope it's At Least That's What You said which would totally kick ass but they might go with something like Muzzle of Bees.

It grew on me and was great live, but not one of my favorites either. I'm a Wheel is one of my least favorite Wilco songs (I always skip it) but it, too, was great live. Still, I'd rather hear just about anything else from Ghost than those two on Leno tonight.
