Well, a Wilco Wednesday in Winnipeg certainly proved to be a worthwhile way to spend an evening — especially when the Canadian audience finally woke up (and wisened up, IMHO) near the end of the main set by getting on its feet, which occurred when a woman's whine to Jeff actually worked.

 

More on that to come, though I don't want to steal too much thunder from our resident VC Winnipegian(?), who should certainly feel free to chime in with his insights.

 

For now, here was the complete setlist as played (there were no changes from the printed list):

 

Bright Leaves

Before Us

Company In My Back

Can't Stand It

One and a Half Stars

Handshake Drugs

War On War

Hummingbird

Via Chicago

How To Fight Loneliness

Laminated Cat (aka Not For The Season)

Random Name Generator

Reservations

Impossible Germany

Love Is Everywhere (Beware)

Box Full Of Letters

Passenger Side

Everyone Hides

Theologians

I'm The Man Who Loves You

Hold Me Anyway

The Late Greats

---------------------------------

California Stars

Red-Eyed and Blue>

I Got You (At The End of the Century)>

Outtasite (Outta Mind)

Really enjoyed the show! The new songs sounded great. Loved the Being There encore as well. Thanks for posting the set list!

What a show! I was a little nervous for Wilco experts like bbop and theashtraysays coming all the way to Winnipeg (in a less than desirable time of year) for a seated show. In my experience cities that don't get played every album cycle end up with more tepid audiences which I think was at least partly true for this show until the lady in the third row got everyone to stand up. What a legend! 
Setlist was pretty good, nice to hear Can't Stand It and Passenger Side. There was rumours that someone, who knows who, put in a hundred+ requests for Casino Queen but alas, it was not in the cards.

Banter wise Jeff was great tonight, the most animated I've seen him in awhile. I looked over bbop a few times and noticed he was taking notes (what a pro!) so I will await his report.
