  1. The first song is great. I played it once this morning and it's been stuck in my head all day.
  2. Hi all, somehow I didn't end up getting tickets for the second night of the upcoming stand in Chicago, and now the show is sold out. I'm interested in two tickets, anywhere from GA to mezzanine to first balcony would be great. Let me know if you have any you'd like to offload. Thanks!
  3. Wow, I love everything about this clip. Nels just rips it up.
  4. I think/hope they'll give him a shout out at the Riv. Lin was a pretty big champion of the band. XRT played a live version of "Impossible Germany" as part of the tribute yesterday.
  5. What a great tribute yesterday. 4+ hours without a single commercial. Hard not to get choked up a time or two between the stories and the Lin's Bins, and some great music. I'm really going to miss him. It'll be strange for Wilco to take the stage at the Riv in March without Lin in the building.
  6. I'm in for the Thursday show as of now. Going to try for Saturday as well. Wife has a family spring break trip planned for us starting on Sunday, so unless I find a way to magically rearrange that, I'll be happy with two shows!
  7. I think my list is done, or at least as done as it's going to get! 2022 was a really good year I'd say. I can go 30 deep with good albums, but here's a top 20: 1. Spoon - Lucifer on the Sofa 2. Dawes - Misadventures of Doomscroller 3. Kurt Vile - Watch My Moves 4. Kevin Morby - This is a Photograph 5. Josh Rouse - Going Places 6. Nilufer Yanya - Painless 7. Wilco - Cruel Country 8. Phoenix - Alpha Zulu 9. Weyes Blood - And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow 10. Death Cab For Cutie - Asphalt Meadows 11. Wet Leg - Wet Leg 12. Drugdea
  8. I tried! When I saw how this was all going to line up, I concocted a trip to New Orleans for the wife and me. My wife is not a music fan (Wilco or Spoon anyway) but does love New Orleans, so I actually go her on board. Oysters, Cafe Du Monde, she was even willing to go to the Spoon shows... until we found out she had an important work event she couldn't miss. Soo close!
  9. Agree these songs are just made for this format! Sounds super crisp and perfect.
  10. Ah! Well this sounds incredibly cool, but there is just no way I could make it to Carol's in time for what is sure to already be a long line.
  11. Well, day of and still no word. @Chez, heads your house, tails mine? 😆
  12. You are literally living my dream.
  13. If neither your deck nor the Hideout work out, I just redid my patio with a 10'x12' gazebo and am happy to make that available for an intimate Wilco stage. Fire pit reserved for White Sox grumblings and laments!
  14. Still no more info on this, ay? I guess we don't know this is actually a show. It could be some kind of promotion or Cruel Country physical release party/kick off event or an announcement. But with the last show of the year tomorrow, it would be strange for Chicago to get no concerts on the CC tour.
  15. Very intrigued to see what this is! The Riv and the Vic appear to be available that night...
