  1. Seeing a marten dart across the road in front of us while driving back to Jacksonville, VT on an isolated stretch of highway, was a highlight. I was excited to see Sylvan Esso, but damn, I was not expecting to enjoy it that much. What a set. We’ve seen Neko Case several times, but when she covered Connie Smith, that had to be the clearest, most powerful, commanding Neko we’ve ever heard. Wow! I wouldn’t have been surprised if I had never again heard ‘’What Light’’ live. The extreme joy we experienced while it played, with beautiful, tearful thoughts and memories of our youngest daughter, who d
  2. I agree. I enjoy Jeff's solo albums. I truly enjoyed the Tweedy and friends set, but I wanted more Wilco. Especially after a set of Cruel Country, an album I listened to several times before the show and love. Even more especially after hearing 7 repeats from the first set in the second set. Those Cruel Country repeats are good songs and fit seamlessly into the set. If it was a regular Wilco show, no complaints. But every time they played a Cruel Country song in the second set, my thought was " could've heard a new (to Solid Sound 2022) Wilco song". When the count reached 7, I held that in res
  3. I’ve been waiting 2 hours for the Tweedy and Friends review on After the Show, but decided to say it myself. Since I’m not bbop, I’ll say it here. David Byrne sang California Stars to close the festival. My wife and I were center stage, 2 people back. About 4 or 5 songs in, I saw a grey haired person in the wings stage left. Intrigued at who it was, I stared. I immediately said to my wife, I just saw David Fucking Byrne off stage! He went back out of sight. Much later he appeared again and people in the crowd started mumbling to each other and taking pictures. When he was introducing him, Jeff
  4. Excellent endorsement and excellent response. Thank you for sharing.
  5. I haven’t posted in over a year and a half, but I have a Wilco Holiday Spirit anecdote to foist, I mean share. We have always wanted to go to Solid Sound, but, being teachers, June is when we go on our yearly travels. As much as we love Wilco, we can’t afford 2 major trips. Our oldest daughter has some serious health issues and our son-in-law has been working/living several hours away all year, only coming home about one weekend a month. We have been getting her to appointments, staying with her in hospital, staying with the grandkids, etc. Things family does. During Christmas Eve festivities,

  8. Sarah, I cannot fully understand your situation or imagine it. I have no idea what to say that would matter. Take a breath, hold your husband, assess, and listen to the music you love as often as you are able.
  9. During work happy hour today, the word came that the state of Florida closed schools for 2 weeks. Spring break starts Monday in our district. A week off with pay is something I, my wife and our teacher friends are all behind, though to be honest, we’d rather be teaching so our students won’t be disadvantaged. My district has said we are supposedly teaching online. That will cover the state law regarding required instructional hours and will keep downtown from being pissed that they’re paying us for sitting on our asses. “Develop creative, supplemental plans to entice your students to continue

    I agree, but when 2 tickets with a total face value of $55 cost $112.50 after fees, something is wrong. If the artists are getting that exorbitant fee, that’s not a way to make a living that I support. I assume Live Nation receives that money, which I’d at least understand. Tickets prices, like all products, increase over time, but fucking hell, when the fees are MORE than the ticket, that’s some bullshit. I’d prefer a higher ticket price and lower fees. When $112.50 came up as the total for 2 $27.50 tickets, I assumed that I clicked on 3 tickets instead of 2. When I realized it was accurat
  11. Roadhouse, Sturgill did leave it all out there. I don't know if the suit survived the sweat. I agree that the advance qualification system Sturgill used was a better way to buy tickets. I too was glad I said something, but relieved that it didn't escalate. I'd have been a Neil Young song.
  12. Yes. Loud. I'm certain I attended louder concerts in my youth, but it was easily the loudest show I've attended in at least 20 years. Tyler Childers was excellent. He had 75 minutes and made the most of it, keeping the banter to a minimum and playing 16 songs. Loved him. Definitely want to see him headline so he can slow it down a bit, plus play a few more. Fantastic band. Sturgill played all of Sound & Fury, then 12 more, mostly from Metamodern... and A Sailors.... He did play Some Days from Hightop Mountain, plus 3 choice covers. He was into putting on a show. I knew he could play gu

    I decided on 2 lawn tickets for ATL. I was very pleasantly surprised they were $27.50 each, plus fees.The final price? $112.50. No. Oh, and fuck you.
  14. Sturgill Simpson with Tyler Childers opening. Damn, are we excited!
