  1. Ha! You are absolutely correct. Having attended both of those, all I can say is the crippling self-doubt I was experiencing when typing this CHQ review squeezed them out of my memory bank. Thanks for setting the record straight!
  2. (With regards to bböp) Wilco came to deep Western New York for the first time in many years. Maybe close to 20, as I believe their appearance at the Rockin' at the Knox event, benefitting the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, back in 2005 may be the last they played this part of the region south of Toronto and east of Cleveland. When I saw in March they were scheduled at the Chautauqua Institute, I smiled and thought 'what a crazy choice', but one that totally suites them. For those who may not know (and I'm still not absolutely clear myself, despite being a native WNY'er), the Chau
  3. My wife and I dig it. Great fun with what looks like a beautiful cultural touchstone in Cthi-cah-go. I'm lovin these visual excursions they're taking us on.
  4. As a streamer, I commented to my wife how spry JT seemed on stage, given he's battling such hip pain...swaying back and forth, and even rhythm stepping left and right, shifting his weight to time. Then, as they exited after the main set, nugs cut to the stage right camera as the fellas filed passed, and I noticed a distinct gimp in his stride. Maybe the 'body moving' caught up with him and they launched Spiders to end it? (which was a great finish, imo) Either way, my wonderful wife received a new hip a few years ago and our family is acutely aware of the pain that comes with a spent one
  5. This weekend gets my bet. A double whammy announcement of SSF24 and Cousin.
  6. That's a major award. You should be proud. Thanks for the reports! Always a pleasure to read.
  7. Bookended the week w/Jon Spencer + The HITmakers on Sunday to Angel Olsen and The Big Time Band last night. A nice turn of the months.
  8. Nice. Thanks for sharing. I used to have those two* from '04 on an old CD/drive that I lost track of a long time ago. I only managed to catch the last song of Paul's set during this Wilco Radioooooooo stretch, and it was really great to hear again. It brought me back to when Nels and Pat were the brand new guys and the band became something new, but not different. (*DeKalb, when I heard Hell Is Chrome played live for the first time and my mind melted, and the two covers from New Year's at the Garden)
  9. This is great! Thanks for transcribing, bböp! I guess I did hear most of Nels' set, after all. His story about Willie recording with Carla Bozulich is one of those "who'd a thought" kind of tales. So, how fast were you in jotting down that dude Paul Suwan's setlist? : D
  10. I caught a bit of Paul Suwan's set, too. Great stuff! I wish Wilcoworld Radioooooooo had a month more.
  11. Mikael played some jams, too. I've only heard a bit of his set, but what I did hear was excellent.
  12. Nerdy note.... The Stones hit their 20yr mark with Undercover (not awful, IMO, given I was 15 and it was part of what formed my perception of who they were as a whole...beginning with Some Girls thru Tattoo You. The following 10yrs of discovering and digging into their entire catalogue were just as formative, and I still feel that thrill when listening from time to time, after having stepped away from their music for a while), their 30yr mark with Voodoo Lounge (uhhhh, ok*) and Bridges to Babylon, almost halfway through their fourth decade (just happy they were still active, making
  13. I once saw a candid photo of myself, taken side stage at a local show, that revealed me with a bit of a scowl. I was horrified, because I remembered thinking to myself, specifically when I saw the camera was pointed at me, "I don't mind this photo being taken, I'm having a great time and it's ok to let people know it once in a while". So, now I clap along when encouraged.
  14. Indeed. I was told those are the apples grown for dumplings.
